    Mastering Location Scouting for Elopement Photography

    Mastering Location Scouting for Elopement Photography

    This episode is specifically for the elopement photographers out there listening. You’ve probably shot elopements in the same location many times, and you know that place like the back of your hand, but what about the locations you’re less familiar with? How can you figure out the best location for your couple?
     
    It’s so much more than just finding the right location. It’s about figuring out the parking, knowing when and where you will get the best lighting, alternative trails if one doesn’t work out, if it’s pet friendly or not, and more.
     
    We are sharing our best tips for how to choose the ideal location for each of your couples, including the detailed research we do, going to the physical location, and the tools we’ve used in the process. We also delve into the importance of really understanding what your couple is looking for so you can align the location with their vision.

    In this episode, we chat about:
    Why location scouting is important The online tools we use to help in the initial stages of location scouting Taking the time to actually visit the location and why this is so beneficial Giving your couples a questionnaire so you can truly understand their vision How we use technology to know the optimal lighting Things to do the day of the elopement to make it a seamless and enjoyable experience for your couples ‌

    Money is Imaginary: Shifting Your Perspective for Financial Freedom

    Money is Imaginary: Shifting Your Perspective for Financial Freedom

    You might think I’m crazy by saying this, but I believe that money is imaginary. I mean, yes, we can use cash and coins, but most of our money is usually in a bank account that we can transfer from one to the other. It’s literally just pixels on a screen.
     
    Today, we are talking about how this thought process can help you make positive changes in your life. I know that for us, thinking of money in this way helped us buy our dream house that we recently just closed on.
     
    Yes, wealth is real, and debt is real, but we shouldn’t let it dictate our self-worth or happiness. During this episode, we talk about the psychological effect of money, why W-2 jobs won’t help your mindset, and how entrepreneurship can help shift your money mindset to help create more financial abundance.
     
    We also discuss our personal journeys with our mindset, going from being very frugal and having anxiety around our finances, to having an abundance mindset, as well as the importance of asking yourself if your emotions around money are actually serving you.
     
    When it comes to money, you want to have a neutral mindset, focusing on making conscious choices to improve your life regardless of your financial situation.
     
    In this episode, we chat about:
    We closed on our dream house! The idea that money is imaginary How money can impact your emotions and self-worth, and why you shouldn’t let it Why W2 jobs will never make you feel good about money Our experiences going from being frugal to having an abundance mindset The importance of keeping your mindset neutral around money ‌
