One thing i’ve noticed about the wedding industry (Mostly blogs, Pinterest, etc.) … There’s not a TON of ethnicity shown. Speaking for myself and my business, I book 99% white couples. I was talking with friends of mine who just so happened to be a white male, and black female– and they noticed on my website that I had zero ethnicity what so ever. I wanted to change that.

People book what they see. If you only shoot white couples, you’re only going to book white couples. If you start opening up your horizon and shoot ethnicity, or same sex couples, you’ll start to book more of those as well. I really wanted to make a statement. Not just on my own website, but for other wedding vendors as well. You don’t have to be a white couple to book me, or to have an awesome elopement shoot.

I’m not saying that only white people get married. Because that’s obviously not true. HOWEVER, I am saying that if you go through wedding blogs and pinterest, you aren’t finding a TON of advertised ethnic couples, or bohemian ethnic couples at that. I am a bohemian, hipster, etc. photographer and there are plenty of ethnic couples that relate to my brand and my vision. It’s just setting yourself out there for them to see your work and know that you are working with everyone.


When I started putting together this shoot, I knew Latoya and Lee were going to be the best. ONE- I’m OBSESSED with their locks. TWO- I’ve worked with them in the past and they are super cute together and DAMN easy to photograph! Thanks for making my job easy guys! I also knew right away who the awesome vendors are that I wanted to include! I love these ladies, SO MUCH!

Yet another thing I would like to convey is that as an alternative to trying to fit all your online degree tutorials on days and nights that you end work (as most people are drained when they come home), try to find most of your lessons on the weekends and only a couple of courses on weekdays, even if it means taking some time away from your weekend break. This is really good because on the weekends, you will be much more rested plus concentrated on school work. Thanks for the different points I have learned from your blog site.
