    09 | Our Wedding Photography Story - how we got started, how we work together, and why we love it!

    09 | Our Wedding Photography Story - how we got started, how we work together, and why we love it!

    Our story, completely unscripted -- in this episode we talk about:



    + how we first got started as wedding photographers (back before the internet - maybe exaggerating, maybe not)

    + how we work together, merging different styles and slightly different philosophies

    + why we absolutely love what we do and why/how our value has grown, the longer we have done this together!



    This one was FUN and might just tempt us to throw out the scripts a bit more often. :)

    08 | What We’ve Learned After 50,000 Miles of Road Tripping with Kids, Part 2

    08 | What We’ve Learned After 50,000 Miles of Road Tripping with Kids, Part 2

    In over 50,000 miles, we’ve been to 41 states, 23 national parks, and averaged ~5,000 miles while on 4-8 week-long-road trips, which we’ve taken annually for 7 of the past 9 years.

    And nearly every year, when we are on the road with our kids for this amount of time, we get asked both the WHY and the HOW. And we get it, road tripping with small children is not always easy… but it’s also pretty awesome! If you haven't listened to Part 1, start there first!

    Here's Part 2!

    06 | I Took A Month Off Social Media - Here's What I Learned!

    06 | I Took A Month Off Social Media - Here's What I Learned!

    In December 2021, I read the book, Digital Minimalism, then decided to take a month-long break from social media that January - in 2022 - which turned out to be one of my favorite decisions heading into the new year, so I did the same as we started off 2023. Here’s a recap of the things I’ve learned from taking a whole month off social media each January for the past two years!

    05 | Unreasonable Hospitality and Measured Generosity

    05 | Unreasonable Hospitality and Measured Generosity

    The book, Unreasonable Hospitality - The Remarkable Power of Giving People More Than They Expect, is the story of how Will Guidara transformed Eleven Madison Park into the best restaurant in the world by reinventing how they offered hospitality… and making those little things they do into big things – making their personal touches unreasonable.

    But it’s not just about the restaurant or hospitality industry, it’s about all about how he learned the power of going above and beyond, and is filled with incredible and super inspiring stories and examples along the way.

    I LOVED this book. It’s one of my favorite business books I’ve read in awhile. Let’s get into it some lessons we learned from it!
