5 Ways to Be Taken Seriously as a Young Photographer

  • Guest Post By Caroline Logan

years ago I hosted a workshop in Richmond and had a young high schooler travel ALL the way down from PA to attend!! This amazing girl was Caroline Logan. Caroline has done nothing but impress us from day one. I thought I started early when I was barely 20 but she blew me out of the water!! She started shooting before she could DRIVE!! She has worked so hard over the last several years and her hard work has pair off. She’s incredibly talented and her business is thriving!! As I was beginning to write a post about how to be taken seriously when you’re young… I realized that I’m not that young anymore!!!

Sneak Peek

  • The Australian Workshop

to believe it’s over! Just like that… our first international workshop is done and we’re currently in a hotel room trying desperately to get our checked bags AND our carry-on bags under the weigh restriction! (Because in Australia, your checked bag can only be 7 kilos! Weird!) It all went by so so fast… and since we’re in the midst of our wedding season, we have to come home too soon. But now that we have sweet friends here, we have so many reasons to come back for a visit!!!

Wifey for Lifey Hoodies! | A Lace & Loyalty Giveaway

  • Good Things

came in the mail last week and Michael said “Oh! I know what this is!”. I could tell by the tone in his voice that it was a gift! He handed the package to me and I opened it. It was a one of Lace and Loyalty’s adorable “Wifey for Lifey” gold foil hoodies!! I loved it!!! Michael is such a great gift giver. And he’s so good at keeping all of his gifts a secret! After I opened my new hoodie, I instagrammed it and people LOVED it! After realizing that how much everyone loved it, I thought “Hm, I’m a wedding photographer… this would be a GREAT giveaway!!!”.
