Jen and Mark Wedding

This last week has been a complete whirlwind. I flew to Tampa Bay and back, and my mind is still processing the experience from beginning to end. My overly-layered Boston baby found herself soaking up sunshine in her Grandma's backyard as I left her for our first full day apart and headed with Mike and Tom to shoot Jen and Mark's wedding. This day came with a lot of anticipation and anxiety. I feel confident in my wedding photography, but to be shooting fo...

This Saturday we got to shoot a wedding that I've been looking forward to for quite some time. If you follow me on Twitter, you'd know that even before we got to Kristy and Jason's wedding location, a beautiful, rustic barn, I knew that we were going to get some fabulous pictures. All week I'd been sending emails back and forth with Kristy, and I couldn't help but tell her how excited I was. The one thing I didn't realize going into their Day was the lo

Last week was odd. I'd been in a bit of a funk, and started to realize the new responsibilities that go along with being your own boss. I heard it said, during a Lion's Guild [a motivational, proactive group for entrepeneurs that helps them build a successful business long-term] meeting last Wednesday, that without a plan by Sunday night, you wake up on Monday morning unemployed. That's not all I learned. Becky and Beverly also shared that "70% of all t...

Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of MAB soul-searching. What is MAB? What do we want MAB to become? How can MAB serve others better? And what will that look like for us? There’s a lot of loaded questions we’re only beginning to answer, but I’m glad we’re answering them. I don’t want to move forward without purpose or vision, and I don’t ever want “MAB Photographers” to be limited to just photography because we're so much more than that. We're Christians, an...

We say this all the time, but our success, our philosophy, and the way we've built our business is that relationships with our clients are foundational to our success. And we really mean it.  Derek and I go way back - like as long as that saying has been outdated. And Tiffany and I have gotten to know each other even better since her and Derek have been boos, fiance's, and now husband and wife [still technically boos]. It's been really cool to not only h...

Typically, when a client chooses us to be their photographer the next step is determining a location for their session. For every engagement and couple’s session, we always ask if there’s any place significant to the couple or any place they already had in mind [since, well, these are their pictures]. If not, then we go straight to the drawing board, brainstorm, Google search, typically steer away from places that are “photographer happy” and land on a loc...
