We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

The Workshop Experience

  • Behind the Scenes | February 2015

This workshop is one for the books! No, there weren’t two proposals like last time… but there was a BLIZZARD!! … Which was equally unexpected. We had 70 degree weather a few weeks ago and now we’re looking at 7 degrees tomorrow! How is that even possible?! So when we heard that it was going to be in the 20’s for our shoot, Amanda and I started brainstorming. The thing is, we can shoot in the cold! Our camera will work, the light will be fine, our fingers will work until they freeze… overall there wasn’t a SHOOTING issue, it was a floral issue! You see, flowers FREEZE in 20 degree temperatures and so we had to shoot FAST!

10 Things You Didn’t Know…

  • About Michael!

I’m so excited to write this post because you already know a lot of weird stuff about me! Like the fact that apples make my mouth itch and that I can’t really bend my last three toes! Strange, I know. But don’t you feel like you know me better because you know some of the weird stuff?! Today it’s Michael’s turn! I made him come up with this list because I only wanted him to share 10 things that he wanted the world to know about him! I could come up with three dozen things that may surprise you about Michael but I’ll let him do the talking today!

Leather Craftsmen

  • Parent Album Clones Promotion

As soon as these babies came in the mail I felt like my sister’s wedding planning was officially over! We ordered Joe and Emily’s 10×10 album from our album provider and it was stunning!! We use the 3500 Series albums from Leather Craftsmen and we love them!! I wanted to share some of my sister’s new wedding album AND my mom’s parent album because Leather Craftsmen is offering 20% OFF of any CLONE parent albums!! If you’re a photographer and you offer high end albums, you know that this is a HUGE help! Genuine leather albums are not cheap!
