May your choices reflect your Hope's not your fears. We are with you, we see you and believe us we feel you. . We have seen 1 a.m. more times in the past month than we'd like because of restless sleepless nights. . We've had more conversations consoling heartbroken clients than we could have ever imagined. . We are getting through by leaning on eachother, being grateful for the things we have, making the most of this time with family, using this time to try to better ourselves and cultivating community. What are you guys using this time for? Are you teaching yourself something leaning into family time? Getting real quality time with your lover? We want to know 👇
Use this time to stay close to people who feel like sunshine , these two bring summer wherever they go. . How are you guys using this time? . We have been sinking deep into family time, lying on the floor coloring with Jude, making boatloads of slime, playing out more make believe Lego scenarios than you could imagine. . Photographers just because you don't have sessions right now doesn't mean the work has to stop. . Go after all the things busy season had you neglecting, blog, order sample albums, create a content calender for the next month, create a sales funnel, learn about facebook ads, learn on skillshare creative live or book a Skype mentor session with someone you look up to, to help them out in these times as well, work on your client experience, finesse your workflow or canned email responses, design a client welcome guide or investment guide, start pinning your weddings and sessions, play with new editing techniques and then binge some Netflix (zero judgement). . Use this time as a gift look at the glass as half full and better yourself and your business. Just a reminder we have a TON of free resources on the blog check em out, learn something, stay safe.
Anyone else looking forward to this all blowing over? This entire situation has left us feeling like a little cartoon figure with the rain cloud following overhead. . Things are kind of scary and we are all looking into the unknown. We are sending all of the love, positivity and strength to you right now. Whether you're a couple whose wedding plans have been turned upside down or you're a vendor feeling hella emotional over this rocky landscape we are all navigating we are here with you and we are so sorry. . To all the couples whether you're a client of ours or not, from the bottom of our hearts we are so sorry. Having to make the choice to postpone an upcoming wedding is the worst. We know your wedding is something you've been planning, envisioning and looking forward to for so long. You've spent so much money trying to make your vision come true, you've booked honeymoons have put thousands towards deposits securing your vendors and all you've been looking forward to is sharing it all with your friends and family. . We know you're heartbroken but we are sending all of the love and virtual hugs the really tight squeeze kind. Whatever you choose to do your friends, family and vendors are going to be behind you. We are just here to yell into all of the noise about this right now that you're not alone and we are here to help in anyway possible. Reach out with anything.
•°HAIL YOURSELF °• . It's the hardest thing to do and something we ALL struggle with DAILY. It is so easy for us to give a million yes's to those around us even if it means spreading ourselves so paper thin we are literally a shell of our former selves. And not just a shell of our former selves a shell of our BEST SELVES. . I especially feel like as a woman we do this to ourselves nonstop, as a mama and wife and business owner it is easy to put myself at the bottom of the totem pole but guess what if you keep putting yourself at the bottom of the totem pole your business will end up there as well. It's an extension of you and you need to feel happy, healthy, inspired, fulfilled to kick ass. If you arent taking care of yourself you're ripping off all of the people in your life of your gifts and talents because you arent sharing your highest self with your friends and family and you won't be able to give your customers the best service or product. . You deserve the things that make you happy, demand it, expect it and you WILL receive it and once you do you can put that back out into the world and give your best to those around you, can you imagine how much better the world would be if we were all operating from this space of loving ourselves to the point we feel like we DESERVE the absolute best? Rather than being fueled by fear, exhaustion and unworthiness? Next time you feel selfish for doing something purely to feed your soul think about how doing that thing is going to make you so much better for everyone around you and then how you can use that new found energy to do some good. Who's starting today? What are you going to do to HAIL Yourself?

Dom and Nick flew all the way from Minnesota with the vision of their wedding taking place against the gorgeous mountain back drop of the #pgawest in Palm Springs. The wind almost caused the whole ceremony to be moved inside for fear that the chairs and ceremony arch may knock over but these two toughed it out and as Dominique was saying her vows the sun came through the clouds. Sometimes you just have to embrace the rain, clouds, wind, snow and the alchemy of chance they can yield beautiful results mother nature knows what shes doing 💕 Venue: @pga_west Gown @ourshopbridal @justinalexander Bride: @d0m.c0m_ HMU @nathanrickel
