World Photo Day

In honor of last Friday being World Photo Day and my Good Decision this past weekend I thought I'd share a post with some of my favorite images from the beautiful weddings I've had the opportunity to photograph! I'll be honest, I didn't even know that there such a thing as World Photo Day but I'm glad there is. Seeing all of the posts, articles, and websites that celebrated the day it reminded me that as wedding photographers we can give a gift that keeps on giving from generation to generation.

Teal In The City

I'm not really sure how to begin this post, I'm just so excited about it! When I first moved to Charlotte I did not think I'd meet so many great people. Working full time doesn't really give you the freedom to spend your day networking and meeting other young entrepreneurs or small business owners. At least, that's what I thought.

The Pricing Guide

Happy Wednesday friends! I'm so excited to be sharing this post today because I can finally give you all a sneak peek of my new and improved pricing guide! This is the first item on my "From Inquiry to Delivery" list and I'll officially be able to scratch it off once I get my new head shots in the spring. Lists help me map out what I need to get done and I feel a little bit more accomplished when I can scratch something off of it. My "From Inquiry to Delivery" list isn't very long but it's definitely helping me get my process together.  Not only do I get to scratch it off of that list but also my March goals list! Win, win!

The Green Being

This past weekend I went to my cousin Jennifer's house for what we're calling her first blog shoot! Jennifer has started a healthy living blog where she posts practical tips on her vegan lifestyle and overall healthy living. For this shoot we wanted to do something fun and easy as well as something she does on a regular basis. Jennifer makes juices almost daily so I wanted to showcase some of those for her with this shoot. She also made raw vegan fruit tarts and chocolate ganache cupcakes.

Sizing Your Images For Facebook

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I'm sharing how I size my images to get them to look as clear and crisp on Facebook than they are on my blog. I've heard plenty of photographers complain about how their photos aren't as crisp on Facebook as the the originals. I've gone through this problem myself so I know just how frustrating it can be! Well, here are my solutions for this problem for two platforms that I use, BlogStomp and Photoshop!

Marketing Materials | Which Company is Best?

Marketing materials are something every business needs. From business cards to note cards to mailing labels, we all need our materials to look beautiful and professional. One thing that is always hard to decide on is which company to get these materials from. There are a lot of places out there with great quality paper so you have a TON of options. If you are just starting your business you're probably on a small budget so you don't want to waste money ordering a large amount of materials and then come to find out that the quality isn't what you though it would be. Instead, order samples!

Fashion Blogger Vanessa Contreras

Social media is such a powerful tool. I'd been looking for a fashion blogger to work with and I noticed that a photog friend of mine, who was already working with a fashion blogger, was very involved with a certain instagram account. Turns out this instagram was chalk FULL of bloggers! Latina bloggers to be exact and let me just say, ALL of these girls have amazing style. I saw Vanessa's style and loved it so much that I reached out to her and just my luck, she was looking for a photographer!
