To tip, or not to tip — that is the question. Followed immediately by “Who?” “How much?” and “Do I really have to?”
There’s so much conflicting information on the internet, it’s no wonder tipping wedding vendors can be such a perplexing topic to so many couples. To make matters worse, it’s a subject that usually doesn’t come to light until the end of the wedding planning process, after you’ve already shelled out a great deal of cash and suddenly realize you might be expected to give EVEN MORE?! And if you don’t — clearly you’re a bad human, your vendors will despise you and ALL. WILL. BE. RUINED! (Dun dun duuuun!)
Marketing is a scary thing for photographers. I get asked many times how someone just entering the business of photography can market with a low to no budget available. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to attract your target market without an advertising budget, but it is possible!

Retouching is a hard part of photography post production. It’s often time consuming and difficult to learn. In Photoshop there’s an endless possibility for retouching but sometimes you just need a quick and fast workflow to get the job done. That’s where Lightroom can assist!
Ask any wedding photographer and they will tell you that a wedding needs to run like a well oiled machine, which isn’t very easy to do. In order to make that happen everyone needs to be on the same page. From the guests, to the wedding party, to the vendors and the officiants, if they are all on the same plan, chances are things will go a lot smoother. This following video is a great example why, take a look:

So I thought I might continue my first blog post into a 2nd part with more explanation and tips on what to wear for your portrait sessions. Often we are told what to do, but not given any real reason as to why we should be doing it. Use this article to help you understand the why behind what to wear on your picture day!
Clothing is just as much a part of your portrait as your lighting, posing, and location. The wrong clothing options can totally ruin an otherwise great image. This article will help you chose the best clothing options for your portrait sessions and explain what you should chose to wear!
