I remember starting this career, and truly wondering where it was I was going to fit in, I felt more competition and less community. Everyone was so talented but no one wanted to share the "secrets," and honestly there's a lot of photography education out there now taught by other photographers but I went into actual debt buying and buying and buying from these people with no avail. I learned how to be "positive." I knew I wanted to show people the road less traveled, the easier way, the most sustainable way to grow and hit that next level; without droves of financial commitment and going into debt, with a focus on friendship and connection. I made a fun side hobby into my career in one year with a little elbow grease and I can show you how.
Hurricane Hillary, the first tropical storm to hit the pacific in over 100 years causing a looming storm on this day, even in the north, but the cyclone couldn't stop the love and sunshine being casted on Lauren and Wayne's wedding day. They got ready at a beautiful rented airbnb while being sprinkled with rain, invited their closest family and friends for an intimate ceremony covered in sunshine, and celebrated the remainder of their evening with guests at a lakeview dinner.
