You’re Invited!

  • Join us for the 2017 Turn It Up Conference!

You’re invited!!!! Are you coming?! You totally should! Why? Because it’s FREE and there are 14 amazing photographers sharing what has worked well for them and what they have learned from their experience in business! This is the game-changing stuff that allows people to get a peek into something other than their own business. When we see different perspectives and learn from one another, that’s when we all become better! There is something awesome about a group of people coming together to give and share! You need to be a part of this!

3 Ways to Overcome Harsh Light in Ceremonies | Guest Post by: Amy & Jordan

  • Ask Anything

You may recognize these two. Amy and Jordan are dear friends of ours that we met a little over 3 years ago, but it seems like we’ve known them for decades! We just traveled to Europe with them this past June and we’re constantly wishing that they lived closer to the East Coast! The desert is too far away from Virginia!!! Not only are these two amazing photographers but they have taken their past experience as teachers and have become incredible educators in the photography industry! We’re so thankful for their sweet friendship and that they took the time to send over an educational post for OUR audience while we prepare for the baby and heal this hand up from surgery!!! Enjoy! :
