  • How Do You Have so Much Portrait Time?!

Wedding season begins, we get flooded with the same question over and over again…. “How do you have time for SO many portraits on a wedding day?!”. It’s taken me a few years to really grasp how we run our business and our wedding days differently from other photographers that allows us to accomplish this. When photographers would ask us how we were able to accomplish so much in such a little amount of time, my first response was “I guess I just shoot really fast!”. Ha! That’s not a helpful answer… and it’s not the full truth. There are several other contributing factors!!

  • Running a Business While on Vacation

of you know, we took a week long trip to Bermuda two weeks ago. We drove through the night after Ryan and Alina’s Charlottesville wedding to head to NYC where our ship was departing the next day. Call us crazy…. but we did it! And we even got 4 hours of sleep AND the whole wedding culled! It’s hard work to walk away from the normal duties of “life” for a week… and even harder to leave a business behind! So is it possible to run a business with little to no internet 500 miles out into the great abyss of the Atlantic ocean… while living on a BOAT?! Yes, yes it is! And I’m about to tell you how!

  • To Teach or Not To Teach

been a popular topic of discussion recently in some of the photography Facebook groups that I’m a part of. It’s somewhat of a touchy subject because it directly affects us. We are teachers. We have an educational side to our business that we absolutely love just as much as we love shooting weddings! So when people discuss on Facebook about how too many photographers are teaching, mentoring, coaching… it’s easy for me to get defensive. However, Michael always reminds me that those comments are probably not directed solely to people like us.
