I scrolled through my newsfeed today and saw multiple sponsored posts from wedding vendors who were advertising a guide to the steps that made them a six figure income and if you are sick of working for free then let me tell you how to make six figures. I was intrigued each time as I scrolled past those guides but then I finally realized my issue.
My fear every year is that I won't book clients and it is my fear not because I won't make a six figure income, but because that means people might not value my work. If I don't book clients, it's because my work and what I see as beautiful, others don't. Being a creative, heck just being vulnerable and putting yourself out there (as every creative and small business owner does) is scary. In a month where we all made big goals and big plans for the year, are you putting yourself out there and actually taking risks? Or are you playing it safe?
I am putting it all out there and investing in myself and my business this year to make this truly the best year yet. I am cheering for you and your 2019 goals and saying you are enough. Your work, your products, your business, you. You are enough. And if I need a little reminder I lean on my friends and wear my necklace from @jennakutcher that reminds me I am enough. And I am.
Hawaii stole my heart.
Luckily I have the most amazing husband that supports my business goals and is willing to tag along on photoshoots during our honeymoon 😂
Also lucky that these two complete strangers agreed to wake up at the crack of dawn to meet me for this amazing view of Oahu.
Kaylee @balancingcoconuts and Mac, you two are the real MVPs & I’m grateful for you guys!
Will share the story of this serendipitous morning soon but for now, enjoy this view 😍

As one of the few pros who is lucky to be there for the entire wedding day, I think it’s so important to be well-versed in lots of stuff, beyond what we specialize in. I’ve had times where I’ve sewn a bride into her wedding dress, helped with countless tricky buttons, fixed a groomsman’s torn shirt, made a bouquet, put in veils, bustled, touched up makeup (with false lashes 😅), and written a place card. By no means am I fantastic at these things, but every time I do them, I get a whole new appreciation for the professionals who are! Today I took my first calligraphy class, and oh my gosh it makes me admire gorgeous paper goods so much more!! 😍

Relationships evolve over time, people change over time, and our love should strengthen and grow over time, too.

When you make someone cry of laughter as well as emotions at the same time! That's what happens when you give Nathan a pen, a piece of paper, and two whole hours to kill 😜

Chiara & Nathan met 11 years ago when they were 14! He fell in love instantly and they remained friends for 7 years before getting together. The raw emotions I witnessed here made me completely gooey inside all over again. @lyrebirdfalls

Hey guys, I’d like to be real and share some thoughts for a moment. Honestly, this entrepreneur path that we’re on isn’t easy. It’s a lot dedication and hard work every single day. Our business continues to evolve and we’re often making changes to improve our workflow.⠀
Most of the stories that you see showcase our epic adventures with couples, but the days afterward we are spending numerous hours culling photos, editing, as well as creating a game plan for the week ahead.⠀
When reflecting on the plane while flying back from our weekend in Maui, I realized that we didn’t step foot in the ocean once the entire weekend. Instead of spending our Sunday on the beach like we had originally planned, we woke up and went straight to the coffee shop to work.⠀
Our plans are constantly changing, we’re always readjusting our schedules, waking up before the sunrise, talking about business strategies on our car rides, and having stress dreams about everything that we have to do. But I wouldn’t change this for the world. ⠀
We have been SO blessed to have had all of these opportunities with so many amazing couples and we truly thrive off of what we do. Thank you guys for your constant support and encouragement. Beyond stoked for this year ahead!! 🤗
