Brooke and Mike’s gorgeous engagement session at the incredible Berry College in Rome, Georgia. Where to start with these two….   I know…we’ll go back to June. I’m on a mini vacation with my mom, sister, and Brantley in Florida and it’s HOT. Like, elephant-sitting-on-your-chest, sweat pouring as soon as you step outside, appetite-ruining, makeup-melting, […]

As I’m sitting here on this stormy day, cuddled up with my daughter while she watches Sofia the First, I’m revisiting my pricing structure so what better time to write this post? When I first started this business, I didn’t plan. I didn’t educate myself. I jumped in with both feet with no understanding of my pricing – it was just a number I pulled out of the air that was high enough it seemed like it was worth my time but low enough I wasn’t really competing with seasoned photographers because I really had like ZERO knowledge of what I was doing. I knew how to take the pictures, but I really understood very little beyond that. What I didn’t realize is I was actually LOSING money! Yep. I started this business as a means of additional income because my young and broke family was scraping by and I actually, unknowingly, made our financial situation worse. I had no idea how much money it would cost me to run my business – if you could even call what I was doing at the time running a business. So here’s what you need to know if you want to stop losing money and start seeing a profit.

  First of all, let me say that I believe first looks are great and I love them. I also love traditional wedding timelines where the big reveal happens when the bride walks down the aisle. Whether or not you have a first look with your future spouse is 100% up to you. It’s a […]

Wedding planning is a hectic and stressful time for most couples, even if they have the help of a planner. Some couples choose venues based on price. Some choose venues based on emotion. Some choose venues based on what their families or bridal parties think. Here is my list of things you MUST consider when […]

I could tell Joclyn was the life of the party from the first Skype conversation we ever had. I could also tell that Brandon was super reserved and it would take some work to get him out of his shell. I loved their story. They were in marching band together in high school and went […]

I knew that up until the wedding day, Katie had been calm and easy going. I wondered how that would change on the wedding day but much to my surprise, it didn’t. Katie looked like Cinderella in her gorgeous ballgown and Chris was well matched in his navy suit. It didn’t take long to realize […]

I met Tiffany and Tyler while shooting another wedding in 2017. The couple I worked with then was one of my favorites I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years and when Tiffany reached out to me several months later, I already knew we’d be a great fit. Tiffany is a hyper-organized Type-A […]
