Tipping Your Wedding Photographer

I'm feeling like I should tip toe around this subject for some season. Maybe it's because not everyone tips their wedding photographers and that's OK! Not everyone knows if you should or if it's a thing others are doing, especially with wedding photography being such an investment as it is. So I guess I'll just cut to the chase. It absolutely isn't expected at all but yes, some people do tip their wedding photographers. I feel the need to say that I never ever expect a tip and I never ever leave feeling disappointed when I don't receive one. I'm always just so grateful to be there to begin with! But it is always such a nice treat when it happens. The Knot offers a Wedding Vendor Tipping

Light and Airy Lightroom Presets by ME!

I'm SO excited about this!  I am often asked about my editing secrets and techniques so I've decided to create several  light and airy lightroom presets just for you! So many situations can change photo lighting and color from second to second, let alone wedding to wedding! That's why I call these presets primers.  Even though they may need to be adjusted a bit from wedding to wedding, they are the perfect base to all of your editing needs!  You guys, they're SUBTLE. No instagram looking filters here, friends.​ These are perfect for all portraits too, not just weddings! I use these techniques every time, for everything I photograph.  Engagement sessions, family portraits, landscape photos...

Point Lookout Wedding | Maine | Jess & Craig

Last Saturday I spent the day with Jess and Craig as I photographed their BEAUTIFUL Point Lookout wedding! Everything was so beautiful!! Jess and Craig were both two of the most relaxed people I have ever seen on their wedding day and that just made everything flow so seamlessly. Not to mention they are both so sweet and so much fun to spend time with :) It was a great day all around. When I arrived Jess and her bridesmaids were in the bridal suite having their hair and makeup done by the fabulous Audrey Blackwood at Haven Salon. I was busy photographing all the gorgeous details Jess had put together for her day while everyone finished up getting ready. Jess chose a wedding gown by Mag

Client Welcome Gift | Wedding Photography

I have been looking for what feels like FOR-EV-ERRRRRR to find the perfect ( to me ) packaging and client welcome gift for SCP Clients and, you guys, I've finally figured it out. I am SO happy about these! Now, I know there are businesses out there that make beautifully curated client gifts for you but here's thing. They are super expensive and honestly, they just felt so impersonal to me. So I hit the interwebs looking for the exact right thing for my brand and budget and I'm so happy with how it all came together. Here's a peek inside my client welcome gifts :) Each box contains my 72 page SCP Bridal Guide, a Kate Aspen candle holder, a "Wedding Day" scented Yankee Candle, the most ado
