A Special Month and a Special Deal

It always amazes me how quickly time passes. I swear, we just started 2019, but all of a sudden, we are half way through the year. Well, it’s June and that means there are a ton of things for me to celebrate. I don’t know if I’ve ever shared all of this, so let me […]

Are Couples Having Shorter Engagements or just Procrastinating?

This June I have 5 weddings. A few of them are smaller weddings, but still 5 is a pretty big number. The crazy thing about it all is that several of these weddings were booked only 2-3 months before the wedding date. Traditionally, people book the photographer 8-16 months out. Recently, though, I’ve been getting […]

Do you like adventures like being out in nature or maybe doing something crazy and risky? Truthfully, I’m not that much of an adventurer. I mainly live in my cushy world and do my work in front of a computer. Well, I got the chance to get out of my normal groove and hang out […]

It’s so crazy how fast time flies. You know they always say that, but it really is true. I’ve been out of high school for almost 17 years now, married for almost 13, and a full time photographer for close to 3 years. I love thinking back on all the things that have happened in […]

I love technology! It’s amazing how much things have changed over the years and all the things that are now possible. For Christmas, I got an Apple Watch, and it has changed so much for me. I now can check my email, respond to texts, and answer phone calls on my watch! How crazy is […]

My Mission Trip to Rwanda

Some of you might have noticed that I disappeared completely for two weeks. I wasn’t posting on social media, writing blog posts, or even responding to emails. Well, that’s because I was off having a trip of a lifetime in Rwanda with my church. Yes, that’s right, Rwanda, the country in Africa. For two weeks […]

Help From My Wedding Couples


I have such a special job. Most people do their job on a daily basis and don’t really make connections with their customers.  A server might interact with 100 people a day, but will those people remember his or her name? Will the server feel like he or she knows the customers? Probably not. There […]

If you are getting photos taken, you need to have prints. I’m not going to go into a long debate about that today. Today, I’m going to talk about one of the other issues I run into. People will often want digital files from a session, which isn’t a big deal, but then they get […]

Difficulties of Having a Photography Studio

The grass is always greener on the other side, but we often forget that we aren’t cows and grass is gross. I do find this true about a lot of things in life. We always want something different or more, but if we ever get it, we are often disappointed or find that there are […]
