We have news - and its not what you think!

Caleb and I have been keeping a little secret from the blog world (lets get one thing clear right off the bat - no, we're not expecting) lately!

As you probably already know, Caleb and I are wedding photographers, and I post some of our work here every now and then. Here's the quick back story, for those of you that don't know! In 2013, our wedding photographers took a huge leap in their business and decided to make us a part of their team (you can read about that here)! So every wedding you've seen on this blog has been booked under their company. Caleb and I still did all the consultations, emailing, photographing, editing and delivering, but we were building up our experience level and learning a TON with each and every session/wedding.

 It was an unbelievable blessing; and our calendars filled up very quickly! I remember crying ugly tears on the way home from dinner with them thinking "My dreams are totally coming true"! It was surreal, we've learned so much the last 3+ years, and the experience with them has been absolutely invaluable.

However, over the course of this year, Caleb and I both felt God nudging us to something new, something unknown, something slightly terrifying. It was entirely too scary to even talk seriously about for a while, and then one night we both said, what are we waiting for!? Lets kick fear in the face!

So in June, we had our good friends over who own the business, and after some good pizza and even better conversation, we informed them that we would no longer be booking through their company because we've decided to...

START OUR OWN BUSINESS!

We're so unbelievably excited! Being in this business has already proved to be somewhat difficult, but it's absolutely going to be worth. I cannot wait to be my own boss! There are so many things that go into starting a business I hadn't even though of, but we're ecstatic about this new adventure God has called us to. We haven't officially launched, and its eating me alive, so I just had to get the news out there. We're hoping to be live before the holiday season gets underway!

I truly can't wait to be official and serve our clients in a new, fun, exciting way! I want to give them a whole experience. I can truly say, we've been fortunate enough to get a lot of couples who not only value us as vendors, but as humans, too! We have real friendships with some of these people, and THAT is what its all about. Creating genuine, authentic community with people; not just showing up, taking photos and posing. I'm so ready to see where this adventure takes us!

I'll keep the blog updated when we're officially launched, but in the meantime, please send Caleb and I all the good vibes, prayers, well wishes, etc.! Thanks for your support!!

  1. That is so exciting!! I was literally just thinking about you two & wedding photography last night. I was going through another "plan my hypothetical wedding" moment & thought to myself that when the time came, even though we're states apart, I would for real want to look into booking you two if you were still doing it & it could all work out. Best of luck to the both of you! You're going to do great!
