CO Backstage Pass - Two Light Tutorial // Anniversary Portraits Atlanta Skyline

CO Backstage Pass - Two Light Tutorial // Anniversary Portraits Atlanta Skyline

Through our business, we have had the privilege to connect with many people. Now, through our photography education business, CO Backstage Pass, we are getting to know more photographers more than ever before. We launched this business in March of this year… it has been a dream of ours for several years now.

Ten years…. an entire decade. I remember when we reached this milestone. It was a big deal because it is! I absolutely love celebrating special milestones, and I love people who do the same. You should never just let it pass by. Yes, life does fly by because in our society, we all live our lives too busy.

The way someone chooses to spend their time, effort and money inspires me. We have known Leo + Christianne for many years, especially Leo. Wow, now that I’m counting as I’m writing this blog, I can’t believe that it’s been 15 years. Holy cow!  Craig and I knew Leo when we were all young and single. We all hung out with other mutual friends from our church.

Knowing that God is an all knowing, omnipotent God, I know and trust that there’s no such thing as “coincidence” or “accident”. Everything has a reason… every encounter we have has a purpose. Sometimes we feel like that we will never meet someone ever again or have any relation to that individual, but you know what?

I’m sure that we’ve all heard, “opposites attract”, right? From my experience, that’s very true, but at the same time, you gotta have a lot in common too. I love that Shayla + Gregory incorporated something that they love into their engagement shoot.

One of the most common questions we get is, "How do you get your clients?"  We meet them through many different ways, but one of the ways is at weddings!  We meet at least one engaged couple who is very interested in our photography and we book them!  And yes, this is how I met Kyle for the first time!

It's so cool how we have a unique story to tell for every shoot that we do.  Through these stories, we remember all of our couples.  We shoot about 40 weddings a year (give or take about 5) and  about 50 portraits sessions and other gigs. That's a lot!

It's still kinda crazy to me that some of our clients either fly here or fly us to their location for shoots.  This October marks 10 years of our business which is just crazy wild to believe.  I look back and sometimes it's all a blur because everything happened so fast, but then again, I remember every detail of the journey.

"Do you ever get tired of weddings?" is a question that we often get asked.  Are you kidding me?  No... We have lost count, but since our business has begun, we have shot around 300 weddings now, and we have cried at every single one at one point of the wedding or another.
