From My Desk

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of leading a breakout session at The School of Styling in Greensboro, North Carolina. I used to speak at conferences and workshops somewhat regularly in my magazine editor days and loved it, but this was the first opportunity I’ve had to speak on behalf of Lisa Kirk […]

A few months ago, a planner/designer friend of mine told me about the wedding she had coming up that weekend. All of her work is incredible, but this one sounded particularly fabulous–industrial warehouse space, over-the-top florals, beautiful couple…the whole nine yards. “I’ll be stalking your Instagram to see pictures!” I told her. “Ugh,” she replied, […]

Blogging

It can be hard enough to write compelling wedding blog posts, even with all of their emotionally charged moments and thoughtfully planned details, but posts about engagement sessions? When your couple snuggled up for photos for an hour or two…and that was it? No wonder these posts have more of a tendency than others to […]

Have you ever let a major holiday go by without acknowledging it on social media, simply because you can’t think of anything original to say? I absolutely have. On a personal level, it doesn’t bother me (I’m not the Facebook birthday wishes type, after all!), but on a business level, it often feels like a missed […]

Blogging

One struggle I’ve come across often is wedding professionals saying the same things over and over again about the weddings they work on. And I totally get it!

So your fall weddings are blogged and your 2018 goals post is sitting pretty in your drafts…but your editorial calendar for the rest of December? Let’s just say it’s sparser than a Charlie Brown-worthy Christmas tree. If blogging feels tougher than usual right now, I can promise you that you are not alone! But what […]

Do I ever have an exciting announcement to share! Just about four years ago, I met Kaitlin Holland–she immediately came up to me when she saw me at a conference and said, “I just graduated too! We should be friends!” That’s one sentence an introvert never tires of hearing 😉 Over the coming years, I […]

I first connected with Paige Hulse a few months ago when she was preparing to launch her business as an attorney for creatives. Along with serving clients directly, Paige has such a heart for educating people and providing resources to make navigating the legal ins and outs of creative business ownership a little more accessible.

Social Media

On the surface, does it matter if you post on Instagram from a wedding (especially one that was perhaps not your most on-brand wedding ever?). No. But, like Maya Angelou said, “People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.” And whether […]
