Each year the Professional Photographers of America hosts a large image competition called the International Print Competition (IPC). Photographers from all around the world compete to be recognized for their skills. This year I entered images to count toward a wedding degree. Three of our images received a merit distinction. Our two wedding albums will be featured in the showcase book! Being published in print in a book is always a great honor (and much rarer with everything being so digital)! We love sharing these awards with our wonderful couples Kathryn and Peter and Brittany and Kyle. We couldn’t do what we do without them!

Member of the Week on the Loop

Category: Favorites | November 16th, 2020
So excited to be featured as “member of the week” on Professional Photographers of America’s online forum, The Loop. “As a thank you for keeping the Loop exciting and engaging for your fellow members, we want to highlight you on the Loop’s homepage.”
Behind the scenes, one of my favorite things is being a cheerleader for others! Answering questions for newer photographers, teaching small businesses about marketing, and helping couples navigate planning. I promise – I am always up to something! Or as my husband says – what now?
