Screenshots & That In the Pit of My Stomach Feeling

My stomach sank as I typed, viewing my words on the screen. Did I really need to do this? Is it worth the risk of being hated, bad-mouthed, and written off? I continued typing, the pit in my stomach growing larger. I clicked send and wanted to throw up. Based on the above, you’d think I was […]

Ghosting: A Wedding Trend

At first glance, the title of this post may seem a little spooky (or cool, depending who is reading this). While I have photographed a handful of Halloween weddings, in this case, ghosting has a totally different meaning. Ghosting is when a person that you’ve been in contact with just completely disappears. Suddenly and without […]

Wedding Photographers Confessions

There are a few things that wedding photographers may not be completely open about or simply may not say much about the subject. Here are a few wedding photographer confessions: Receiving a formal invitation in the mail, even though you obviously know we’re coming, means the WORLD to us. When we receive a new review […]

Behind the Scenes | 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Behind the Scenes post! It’s a little tricky getting photos together when working solo, but now that Chris has begun assisting at weddings and sessions, I’m able to share a peek of what goes on when others aren’t looking 🙂 So here goes, a few technical and […]

The Ultimate Wedding Day Emergency Kit

In my years of being a wedding photographer,  I’ve witnessed many wedding day mornings in which someone was scrambling to find something. Each time this happens, I make a mental note for me to add it to my Wedding Day Emergency Kit. At first, the kit was nothing more than a tiny makeup bag and […]

How To Choose The Right Print Sizes

“I think we want a large print, like an 8×10 or 11×14”. About 20 years ago, these sizes did seem huge (remember those enormous clunky wooden frames?!), but much like aqua net, those frames have phased out.

Then a few weeks ago, I received a called from the Reading Eagle informing me that I was voted Best Photography Studio! Thank you so much to all of my amazing clients […]

Why Do Digital Files Cost So Much?

At first glance, the cost of a digital file may seem a bit pricey. You probably think you aren’t getting “anything”, just the digital file. The thing is though, they really aren’t expensive at all, once you realize what you’re getting. The cost of prints don’t just include ink and paper, it covers all of […]

After-Wedding Workflow

I’m sure most of you have seen the charts floating around, the ones which show a photographer’s job is maybe 15% shooting and 85% business and editing.
