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...

A Downtown Leesburg Engagement

  • Tony + Bryana | Engaged

forecast was rain-free… but it was going to be HOT. Really hot. Normally when there is a heat advisory, I will reschedule an engagement session but they had already taken off work and we had already planned out our schedule to travel up north for the day. Bokeh was at the sitter’s (Aka Grandma’s house) and so we decided to go for it. Tony and Bryana were amazing. They were such great sports and totally owned their shoot!!! They modeled like it was a beautiful 72 degrees with 0% humidity… even though that couldn’t have been further from our reality!

Doing Things Differently Has Its' Advantages

  • The Perks of a Friday Wedding

are a funny things. Sometimes traditions are started and no one knows why but we stick to them like glue because that’s just what you’re supposed to do!! Right?! Well, Michael and I did several untraditional things when we got married, one being that we had our wedding on a SUNDAY! Gasp! 4 yeas ago, there were a lot of people who had never heard of that before. Weddings are supposed to be on a Saturday, right? Not anymore! As a culture, we get so stuck in our ways but things are starting to change!!

Social Media Marketing Workshop June 2014

  • Small Business Social

workshop was just a small thought several months ago. We started offering coaching for small business owners and then I started realizing that a lot of what we discussed in coaching could be taught in a workshop format! So we launched the Small Business Social and last week we had 16 awesome small business owners in our living room!!! There were realtors, bridal shop owners, photographers, PR companies, etc. I love meeting entrepreneurs that are passionate about their business!
