I created this podcast to be a valuable and practical resource for both new and experienced photographers and videographers in the wedding industry. Episodes will range from guests coming on to talk about their own photography and/or videography company to real weddings breakdowns I give from past wedding experiences to technical aspects of wedding photography & videography. My goal for each podcast is to be REAL and provide PRACTICAL knowledge that can be incorporated in the work flow of both new and veteran photographers and videographers.
