I’m Behind

I’m behind on blogging.  Really behind.  One of the things I pride myself on is the 30-day turnaround guarantee on all wedding photos.  This isn’t a problem most of the time, but during the wedding season, living up to this guarantee means some things gotta give.  Blogging, website updates, and social media posts are usually […]

The Value of Imperfections

I just upgraded my primary camera, (for any photography nerds out there, I got a Canon 5D Mark IV), and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the purchase.  Everything about it will help me as I pursue ever better imagery.  But as I sit here looking at my old camera, I can’t help but admire […]
