Those That Continue to Inspire

  • & Why I'm Not Giving Up!

This isn’t a long post… or a fancy post…it’s a really very simple post. Someone asked me the other day “How long have you been doing this? Really? 7 Years? That’s a long time!”. Yes, I agree! Seven years is a long time to shoot every weekend from April to November and blog every weekday and constantly think of things to teach and share.

Two FREE Webinars!

  • Join us in June! It's FREE!

There was a point when I thought our June was going to be quiet this year! We have a weekend off and that NEVER happens in June! That’s right in the heart of wedding season! However, June has actually turned out to be the furthest thing from quiet! We’re SO excited to share that if you’re not in VA or the surrounding areas, you can still learn from us LIVE this month! YAY!
