Out with the Mondays!

I’ve now been a full time photographer for 7 months, and during the transition I have come to learn how to prioritize and run an efficient business! The key word: PRIORITIZE. This doesn’t necessarily even mean prioritizing in my business! Over the last few months I have learned how to prioritize other areas of my life. My health, fitness, finances, relationships, etc. Believe it or not my business is one of my last priorities!

You may think I’m crazy for doing that, but this doesn’t mean that all my time is dedicated to other things other than my business, and that I don’t care about it. I spend quite a lot of time on it, but significantly less time than I use to. You might think that by spending less time working I’ve negatively impacted the business, but it hasn’t one bit! It’s growing faster than ever, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Our Couples Photos by Matt Kennedy

It should come to no surprise that Emily and I LOVE to get photos taken of the two of us. We want the story of our relationship told over time, and that requires every now and then having certain moments captured in time. When we traveled to Charleston last summer we had the very talented Katie Capo take some photos of us. We can now look back at those photos and remember how amazing our time in Charleston was. 

Before we left for WPPI in Vegas I knew that it would be the perfect time and location for another round of photos. It was going to be the perfect opportunity to get some because, um okay a thousand photographers were going to be there…It was a no brainer! Despite having quite the selection the choice of which photographer we wanted to capture our Vegas adventure was also a no brainer.  Without hesitation I reached out to Matt Kennedy! I’ve been following Matt for a couple years now, and had the incredible opporunity to mentor with him last year! 

WPPI – Part I

I have been so excited for the last few weeks about sharing this post! A couple weeks ago Emily and I left for Vegas for WPPI! For those who don’t know what WPPI is; It is the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. Essentially a week of photographers from all over the world coming to Vegas to learn, meet new friends, and find out what’s new and exciting in the wedding and portrait world. Although I’ve been photographing weddings for a little over three years this was my first time ever getting to go to WPPI! 


Corie +Mike | Lakewood, OH Engagements

Winter engagements are slowly becoming my favorite to take! (I emphasize the slowly.) Despite the cold I’m so thrilled with how amazing the photos always turn out, and my couples always look so great all bundled up and in love! This engagement session with Corie and Mike was the perfect example for such a session. […]
