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!

A Lake Monticello Engagement Shoot

  • Matt + Sarah | Engaged

emailed back and forth before the shoot because the weather was ominous. The scattered thunderstorms in the forecast were daunting but between our schedules and their schedules, we really didn’t want to cancel. So we decided to give it a shot! Rain or shine… we were going to make this happen! Michael and I drove up to Lake Monticello last week to meet Matt and Sarah and they couldn’t have been any sweeter!! I just love meeting our couples for the first time and immediately knowing that we are a GREAT fit! They had the BEST attitude about the clouds that started rolling in right as we began their session.
