I'm not your typical wedding photographer. I didn't come out of the womb with a camera in my hand, and I didn't know what an F stop even was until college! I started out as an RN hustling the side business, and before I knew it I was living my [very successful] photography dream full time. 
 I’ve always had a passion for teaching others, and I want to help photographers chase their dreams. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, working the side hustle, or you got your first DSLR camera for Christmas, I hope you enjoy these free resources!

    There are some exciting things happening over here that you don't want to miss! My number one question is "how do you edit?" My number two question is "how do you book so many weddings consistently?"

    As a new photographer I didn’t know which editing software was most efficient, or which business apps to use, or where to even print my business cards! I wasted so much valuable time researching the best of the best, and I want to share my absolute can’t-live-without resources so you can grow your business instead of reinventing the wheel.
