“You have such a fun job.”

“I wonder what it’s like to only take pictures as your job.”

“I mean, all you guys do is take pictures. How hard can that be?”

“So all you do is take pictures? You can make a living out of that?”

Those are real comments that we have received... MULTIPLE times and it cracks us up because I don’t know what my friends do exactly either.

Working in the wedding business, we have seen all sorts of wedding stories… Really, we could write a book. We’ve seen all sorts of personalities as well, and let me tell you…. Chloe + Zach’s are our fav type. Why? Yes, you got it… they’re so laid back and simply happy.

Do you guys remember one of our fav couples, Rhandi + Jon? We shot their wedding at Callanwolde less than 2 years ago… it was featured in a couple of magazines and even on the cover of a magazine as well. We had magazine reps fighting over exclusivity of their wedding… it was crazy!

So, is the world big or small?  Because there's a saying, "It's a big world out there" and then people say, "It's a small world..." So, which is it?  ;)  Well, for this story, it's a small world.  We got referred to Gabby + Phanna from one of other brides and then when they came to the shoot, they told us another crazy story!

We all know that weddings take a lot of planning, but did you know that engagement portraits require a lot of work too?  I think one expectation that couples don't have for e-sessions is the planning that goes behind it.

I love it when couples choose their engagement portraits location because it means something to them.  Diana asked for a waterfall, but I just thought that that's simply what she wanted.  But on the day of the shoot, as we were walking through the VERY muddy path to get to this waterfall, we learned that Diana LOVES waterfalls.

Many photographers have asked us if it’s worth attending a bridal show.  Our answer is always, “YES!”  I mean, why wouldn’t you?  Hundreds of brides come TO YOU!  We have met countless brides and couples there and it provides 25% of our annual income.

There are many reasons why we enjoy engagement portraits that are beyond taking the photographs of our couples.  During these sessions, we really learn a lot about our couple’s personalities, the chemistry between the couple, how comfortable they are in front of the camera, how they interact with one another.

I didn’t even dream of being where we are with our business when we first began… Where we are now is beyond what we ever imagined… I would have never thought that clients like Vanessa + Geandry would book us months ahead and drive up
