The Come Together Event

When we first got married, we never planned on running a small business together. To borrow from the words of Taylor Swift, like ever. Heck, we’d never even touched a professional camera before, let alone ever dreamed that we might one day be wedding photographers! Before Steve Jobs passed, he gave a commencement address where he reflected on his life and explained you can never connect the dots of your life forward, but you can always connect them backward. We just love that. Isn’t that so true? We’ll be celebrating our second anniversary of going full time in this business in just a few more weeks, and while we’ll always have more to learn, we’re already able to connect a lot of our “dots” backward. Trace the moments where God showed up in huge ways. Where He took the wheel. Paved the path. And led us to a rich, challenging, fulfilling life better than we ever could’ve dreamed up for ourselves. Two years in, we see now that there are so many reasons why God brought us to this industry, but one thing is for certain: God has brought us the most incredible, rewarding, life-giving friendships from people we never would’ve met if it wasn’t for wedding photography. People that mean more to us than we could ever express in words. And people who we will treasure long after we all click the shutter for the last time.

you can always connect the dots in your life backward

Katelyn James and her husband Michael are two of those people for us. They live clear across the country in Richmond, Virginia, so we know if it wasn’t for the photography world bringing us together, we would’ve missed out on one of our most cherished friendships! It’s just crazy to think about! These people are our dots! And they get us. Like really get us! We only get to see each other in person a few times a year, but we make up for it with lots of impromptu FaceTime sessions, usually when all four of us are exhausted, have a to-do list a mile long, but just can’t help spending some (face) time together. We have to coordinate both of our insane schedules AND combat the huge time zone difference, so these normally take place really late at night, when we’re all 
looking pretty disheveled (K&M are some of the only people who regularly see Jordan WITHOUT HAIR GEL!!) or when we’re on a long car ride (or even once at the mall!) Our talks together are full of laughter, to the point where our cheeks hurt, but also sharing wisdom, what we’re learning, in business and in life, our ideas, our dreams and sometimes we are even sharing tears. We really share ALL of life, which means the hurt and pain, along with immense joy. We are just so thankful for a friendship that is so rich and so life-giving. They always leave us feeling loved, encouraged, motivated and in need of a good face massage from all the laughing! We love to bounce ideas around, and there was one that we all just could’t let go.

We are so blessed by the time when we come together, lift each other up, share our experiences, mistakes and wisdom with each other, and during one of these late night FaceTime sessions, we started dreaming of an event. And now, we are SO excited to say it’s finally a reality!! Introducing….

Phoenix Engagement_0020

We are SO excited to announce that for THE FIRST TIME EVER we’ll be partnering with Katelyn James to put on a LIVE educational event in Fredericksburg, Virginia on June 11th! Ah!!! We can barely stand the excitement! We have NEVER done anything like this (and we might not ever do it again!!)

Our goal is to provide an accessible and affordable educational opportunity for ANYONE who needs that extra burst in their business!! We’ll be tackling marketing: blogging and social media, the two engines that run our businesses. We don’t pay for traditional advertising and believe that word-of-mouth is the most powerful way to build your business, and in these six jam-packed hours, we’ll be sharing exactly how we do just that. It will be full of practical takeaways that you’ll immediately be able to apply to your business, and we can’t wait to share this with you! The BEST PART?! This event isn’t just for photographers, it is for ANY SMALL BUSINESS OWNER! Florists, designers, planners, anyone who considers themselves a CREATIVE is going to leave this event filled to the brim with marketing knowledge and practical ways to transform two prominent areas of their business!!
