  • Europe Adventure 2016

Two weeks ago Michael and I left for a trip to photograph our first European destination wedding in France! It was a dream come true!! However, our adventure didn’t end there! Our good friends Jordan and Amy were also in Europe for a shoot and we planned to meet up after our work was done!! I’ll be honest, when we have a destination wedding… or really ANY wedding… that’s my only focus. Michael gets us there and I shoot my little heart out. So, when people asked me where we were going in Europe… I honestly had no idea. Michael and Jordan planned the entire trip and Amy and I just followed them around!

Those images will be shared shortly but today, I wanted to do an Ask Anything post to answer a question that we receive quite often. If you’ve never heard of us or our business, there are a few things you should know before reading this. 1. I started this business when I was 20 years old and a junior in college. 2. I never had money to invest in advertising and 3. We have run a 6-figure photography business for the last 5 years.
