Tomorrow, things will look differently on my blog and website. Like many others, I have been going through a small brand “refinement,” as I’m calling it.

I’m in the process of choosing photos for my website, just to give it a little update. This year, for the first time, I feel like I’m really settling into my style. I’ve gone back to previous weddings, re-edited and tweeked some photos and piled them all in a folder. But how do you get […]

When I first started in this business, I needed an attitude adjustment. My insecurities and knowledge of other industries set me up to be closed off when it came to talking with other photographers about my business. I felt the need to push myself to be creative, book all of my weddings on my own, […]
