A little over a year ago, we announced something big + crazy...we were going to give away a wedding! It was an idea that had been tumbling around in my head for years and with the help of an phenomenal team of industry friends and vendors, we decided to finally go for it! At the end of the process, an incredibly kind and deserving couple was selected. Bridgette and Caleb are both full-time students, pursuing degrees that affirm their passion for caring for others. They are humble and generous and truly, some of the sweetest people you'll ever encounter. They have expressed nothing but overflowing gratitude for this opportunity. Just a few days after winning, Bridgette's dad passed away, making this journey all the more bittersweet. Today, friends, we get to celebrate the beautiful journey these two have been on together. Today, we get to collaborate with a tribe of vendors who share a love of giving back and who are excited to make Bridgette + Caleb's wedding day dreams come true! Today, we get to come together with their friends + family and tell this amazing couple how dearly loved they are by all, including those who couldn't be with them today. None of this would have been possible without the help of these vendors, so if you get a chance, go like their page and share some encouragement about their work! They deserve it! Better yet, consider hiring them for your next event. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better bunch of humans to have on your side! And finally, stay tuned for sneak peeks, and go find us on Instagram so you can catch some of the behind the scenes throughout the day! Caleb + Bridgette, we're SO excited to spend today with you! There's no one else we'd rather kick off our 2020 season with than you two!

Feelin' a bit outnumbered around here. We've been settling into life with FOUR littles at home and it's been...exhausting! We love them, but we also need a nap. ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know the end of January is already drawing to a close but it's never too late to be goal-setting around here! One of our big goals for 2020 is to be a resource to fellow photographers, videographers, and creatives through mentoring and branded content development. I loved getting to hear what everyone's up to in their businesses during our giveaway last week and it got our wheels turning as well! If we were to offer monthly, in-person workshops that were topic targeted (i.e., camera basics, lighting and OCF, business + branding, in-person sales, client experience, etc.), would y'all be interested in that?! These would be low-cost, low-commitment classes for anyone not quite ready to jump into a full mentorship, but knows they want to take their education seriously this year. Leave a comment below if you this sounds like it'd be up your alley! P.S. Bonus points if you include what topics you'd want to have covered in a workshop like this!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #creativepreneur #weddingphotographers #husbandandwifeteam #tuesdaystogether #risingtide #weddingphotographersociety #herestothecreatives #creativepreneurs #husbandandwifeduo #meetusmonday #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #familybusiness #creativelife #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #definesuccess #communityovercompetition #meettheartist #stlbusiness #stlsmallbusiness #stlouisbusiness #stlouissmallbusiness #stlentrepreneur #stlentrepreneurs #stlouisentrepreneur #mentoring #photographyworkshop
