And just like that...we’ve been married for ONE WHOLE MONTH. If a month flies by that fast, I can only imagine how quickly the next 60+ years will go! I love you babe, here’s to forever 🥰

Will it matter in 80 years?
Many things pull at our attention day-to-day. How do you know what to choose? We’ve been conditioned to see hard, consistent, long-houred seasons of work as commendable, but when you imagine yourself at the end of your life, how many of those hours really mattered?
How many hours will you have spent working out of a place of competition and comparison, unwilling to simply not be at the top?
How many hours will you have spent sketching down that idea you dreamed of, but never got to, because you were too busy playing it safe, making sure you weren’t taking up too much room?
I want hours and hours of creating just for fun, days of splashing in the ocean, weeks laughing with the people I love, lots of long conversations, quiet times of reading good books... And months, years of purposeful living.
Focus on the essential. And if you don’t know what’s essential, ask what will matter in 80 years.

As you all know by now, I’m obsessed with learning and growing in the game of hair. I’m excited to announce that in less than 1 week I’ll be heading to Scottsdale, AZ to train with many other amazing women to become certified in the @skwextensions Method.
Hand-tied Extensions such as NBR have become an obsession of mine, because of the confidence it gives not only myself, but my clients. But not all extension methods are one size fits all.
I’m always looking to offer the best to my clients, which is why I’m also training in SKW extensions. I love to have different options for different hair types.
I’ll for sure be documenting my journey with SKW, so be sure to follow along 🥰
I’ve had several questions if I’m still going to be doing NBR and the answer is YES. I’m just also going to offer SKW. I believe in both methods and will always communicate what the best fit may be for my clients needs.
Im thrilled to further my education as a Hand-tied Extension Specialist and offer you to best results possible!
Interested in Extensions?! Click the link in my bio to apply for your consult today 🖤
Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody’s feeling warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin in the moonlight
Everybody here is out of sight
They don’t bark and they don’t bite
They keep things loose, they keep em tight
Everybody’s dancin in the moonlight 💗

The Question - How excited are you about this Wedding Vendor Gala nomination?

We were all sitting around the granite countertop in our Airbnb kitchen. I was attending a creative entrepreneur retreat in Texas along with eleven other business women, and was eager to get to know everyone.
The girl across from me was from the Midwest too— we were the only ones. As I told her a was a film photographer, she kind of raised her eyebrows and said, “uh huh, and how’s that going for you?”
My stomach sank a little. This girl knew that shooting film was more popular in other places, like the west coast, than where I was from (I was kind of hoping she wouldn’t). I quickly and confidently explained why I shoot film:
“It makes me slow down and create more thoughtfully, and the colors are beautiful and real, and there’s nothing more timeless than a film photo. Like, all the heirloom photos our grandmas have in albums? Those are legacies on film. And that’s why I create that way, so every photo feels like a legacy.”
I think she kind of snort-laughed after I said all that, mumbling something about how I’d never make money in the Midwest with film and ended our conversation with, “whatever makes you happy, I guess. Go for it.”
By the end of our retreat, I’m happy to report that we left as friends. I came to appreciate her challenging just about every single thing I said about my passions, business, and life because it helped me strengthen my beliefs.
I may never be a multimillionaire or have three vacation homes, but I know what I do matters, and that they way I do it is special to who I am and makes a difference in the lives around me.
Don’t let people tell you your passion is wrong or that they way you do it isn’t good enough. Create a vision for your life and then follow your OWN path to make it happen. ✨
First wedding week of the year and I’m v v excited 🎊
More excited than the bride and groom? It’s going to be a close call.
When I started out 6 years ago, I didn’t have anything like this. Wedding photography workshops felt few and far between, Instagram was just starting to ramp up, and there was a lot of coral and teal out there. Eek. 🤦🏻♀️ My second year I photographed seven weddings and made a little over $8k. That may sound like a lot, but after expenses, that doesn’t amount to much. Year after year, I invested in my education and now, hell yeah I’m turning a profit. 💵 2019 is bringing me a six figure salary - something I never would have believed possible in those first few years 🎉
Why am I sharing this? Def not to brag or boast or toot my own horn. It’s to show you that the proof is in the pudding
I’m not insta-famous. I’m not photographing models on top of mountains. I’m working damn hard to give myself this life and provide for my family
There’s been a lot of chatter on social media about workshops that are shallow and don’t provide value to students
👉🏻Friends, that is not us
We want to teach you how to freaking elevate your business and love every single second of the ride. We want your business to thrive in every way, and most importantly, we want you to make that money 💰

A weekend getaway was just what we needed. I couldn’t keep Candi from answering emails and editing photos, but at least we had some time to ourselves. A reminder to everyone to take time to focus on yourselves and enjoy moments with those who matter most.
Now booking 2020! •
Special thanks to @parkerganderson for this film!
