In Home Coaching Sessions: Why We Love Them!

Personalized Education for Wedding Filmmakers

Ty and I are big believers in using our platform to raise up, encourage, and support those around us.

My sister and I have never been able to talk much about work in a way that we can both “relate” to the topic at hand. She’s a nurse turned government contractor in the dialysis field.

5 Things You’re Forgetting on Your Wedding Timeline

Wedding Planning

I remember when Ty and I were planning our wedding, the last thing I thought we needed was a timeline. Like…I literally didn’t even know that people actually wrote those out before their wedding day.

Dear Monday

Dear Monday, I found my favorite sheets in our linen closet from when Ty and I first got our new bed. I forgot that I kept them because they don’t match our bedding and I’m not down with that. BUT, I disregarded that dilemma and put them on the bed this weekend. Let’s just say, getting up this morning Continue Reading

Calendly | No More Back and Forth Emails

If your schedule looks anything like ours, it’s often full of various meetings, calls, and google hangouts. We LOVE utilizing iCal and syncing it with our Google Calendar and our Honeybook calendar (where we book all of our shoots/weddings) across both mine and Ty’s schedules.
