Have you heard of the saying, “Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are?” One of the things my pastor mentions often is that “You are an average of the 5 people that you hang out with the most.” I agree with these two statement 110% and as parents, we always emphasize to our kids how important it is to make good friends.

Ok, so if you know Craig and I… we don’t watch sports. Like we seriously don’t. Ever. Well, I take that back because we watch the Olympics like maniacs (if that counts) and Craig VERY occasionally watch UFC matches.

This year, half of our clients flew in to Atlanta to get their portraits done with us. Many times, they are originally from here, but because of school or jobs, they had to move to another part of the country. But, they’re having their wedding here in Atlanta because their family and friends are all here.

Every week, we have a shoot or a wedding and over the years, we have seen all sorts of personalities in our clients. Sometimes, personality makes all the difference for us! Part of our job is to read the type they have within minutes to know what to speak about, how to act and how ‘adventurous’ we can be.

Forgiveness is a powerful thing. In fact, I believe it’s what will bring our world together more because forgiveness is an act of love that we all need. You see, I made a mistake. A pretty big one… never made this kind of mistake for our business before.

One day during my college years, I wondered why I was there. Academically, it was getting so difficult and the stress was so immense. Then, it hit me that anything in life that’s good; like real good is hard to achieve. It takes time, patience, money, and a lot of relentless effort. In other words, it’s hard work.

Through our business, we get to mete our couples. And through our couples and their weddings, we get to meet other wedding professionals. Other wedding vendors are crucial to how a wedding day will flow for us. Working at a wedding is unique in that sometimes, you don’t know who you will have to work with until the day comes.

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.

We rarely call our clients “clients”. We refer them by name because after getting to know them, they’re not a “customer” anymore, they’re a friend. That’s the most fulfilling and sweetest part of our job. October of this year will mark 11 years in business for us, and it has been quite a journey.

Weddings are special in many ways. It’s a common place for people to meet and connect. I think it’s great because it’s a time of celebration, everyone is in a good mood and everyone is also looking their best! When we ask couples how they met, weddings is an answer that we’ve received many times.
