our business has humble beginnings: caitlin's parents' kitchen table when she was in high school & luke's apartment when we were in college. we remember how it felt when we started out, & we want to turn around, take your hand, & show you the way. we want to who we wish we had when we were in your shoes.

we've been there...

We want every photographer to get to experience the kind of life we get to live as a result of running our own business! We built this business from nothing into the full-time job that provides for our family and gives us an incredible amount of freedom, and we want other photographers to recognize that it is possible for them, too! We believe it is 100% possible to build a life & a business that you LOVE, and we want to help you make it happen for yourself and your family.

when we first started our business, we were disappointed with the way other photographers treated us as "newbies." we vowed that one day when we were in their shoes, things would be different.

caitlin & luke

When Caitlin started our business as a sophomore in high school, she never dreamed we'd be where we are today... running this business & living our dream together, day in and day out. As wedding photographers who turned a dream into a full time business in college, we know exactly how you’re feeling! We know you have huge dreams for where your business could go. You're wondering if you're even cut out for this, and you're more than a little overwhelmed. You don't know where to start, and you have SO many questions. But when you ask other photographers those questions, they don’t give you a complete answer- as if they're afraid you'll steal their success. As a whole, you feel lonely in this big industry that you've fallen head over heels in love with. We also know that you’re hugely passionate about your business and your work and will do anything to make this thing succeed! Here's the thing, though- we know that this life is POSSIBLE, & we want to help you get to wherever seems impossible right now! We focus on building friendships with our students, and we believe wholeheartedly in the power of running a profitable business that brings joy to YOU and to the WORLD.

If you're fearful that we're just some of those wedding photographers who will give you the bare bones answer because we're afraid you'll steal our secrets, gosh... that just isn't us! We're an open book, and our heart is truly to see you succeed! We believe that with enough hustle, motivation, and the right tools, you can reach your goals and take your business full time too.

At the start of each week, Luke and I have a meeting where we discuss the week ahead and pray over our business, our brides, our students, and our calendar for the week. We care deeply about our students and we care deeply that they feel loved and known throughout their entire mentoring experience!
