Sharing a Secret

  • LEATHER?! Who Knew?! | CGPro Leather Wraps

Sometimes I don’t want to share my secrets. There are some things that I love and I only tell my coaching and workshop photographers about! It’s fun to share little pieces of advice with them that I haven’t talked about on the blog before…. but today I’m sharing one of those secrets! I’m sharing a resource that photographers are going to drool over! Michael and I have used CGPROPRINTS for years and we love the quality, color and the price! It’s incredible how affordable these canvases are! The SURPRISE isn’t just that we use CGPRO, it’s that CGPRO has been working on a new product!!

The Pricing Dilemma

  • Ask Anything

There are some areas of business that we all like to avoid…. TAXES and PRICING. Maybe this is just me but I literally despise “Tax talks” and I don’t enjoy the pricing conversation either! However, as much as I HATE the pricing topic, I know it’s something that has to be dealt with in any small business. In the photography world, there are dozens of different pricing approaches. I’ll be the first to say that there other options out there that are very different from our approach and they WORK! …. They actually work really WELL! However, they didn’t work for us. 

Southern Weddings Planner Review

  • More than just a Organizational Tool

You may remember our Wedding Collective Giveaway that we launched two months ago. It was an exciting time and we were blown away by the incredible response and support from all areas of the wedding industry. Southern Weddings didn’t think twice about being involved and their support means the world to us. These women work day in and day out to create resources for brides and we were THRILLED when they offered to gift one of their incredible “Southern Weddings” planners to our winning couple!
