When we started this business, we had dreams of working together, celebrating love, and creating beautiful images that would last for generations. Over the years, our dreams and goals have only grown as we’ve been able to watch our business grow.
In September of 2018 we decided to take the first big step in the goal we had dreamed up and we hired our first associate photographer. This was a very scary step because we had to relinquish a tiny piece of control over something that was so important to us – our couples wedding days. However, we knew it was the right move because of the high number of couples we were having to turn away because we were not available.
Then, a few months ago when we found out we’d be adding a little human to our family, we knew more than ever that adding associates to our business was the right decision. Not only do we want to be able to capture more love stories and spend quality time with family and friends, we also want to invest in others. We’ve both gained so much knowledge and skills over the years that we really want to give that back to other creatives.
So, with all of that said, we’re so excited to say that we are looking to hire 4 people to invest in. We would love to find two second photographers and two associate photographers to join us for the remainder of the 2019 season and work alongside us during the 2020 season.
