Everyone asks us, How is it to run a business together?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And it makes sense... as a husband and wife team, we're a whole lot less common that most photographers, and something about building your dream together just seems so magical, doesn't it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But here's the thing. Every time we are asked this question, we always preference our answer with this, We could sit here and tell you that everything is always perfect, but that just wouldn't be fair to other couples. For them to think that there is something wrong with them because we weren't honest about what it's like for us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the truth?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Running a business together can be REALLY hard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes it's really scary having our household live off of one income. And sometimes it creates tension in our relationship- disagreements, exhaustion, and so much more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But also- it is incredible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Traveling the world together creating images that impact marriages for this amazing community of couples. It is exhilarating, such an honor, and so incredibly fun to create this empire. Together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just like any relationship, it's like a roller coaster full of highs and lows. 🎢⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And no matter what, when life gets crazy or hard, his arms is the first place where I want to be- just like every other couple. (Whether you run a business together or not).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our goal? Normalize real relationships so we can stop thinking that the grass is greener on the other side. Because y'all... the grass is greener where you water it! 🌱⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So here's a little but of vulnerability and truth here on our little corner of social media today, because man... the world just needs a whole lot more of it.

I mean... ladies... this is what you get when you combine a jaw dropping invitation suite (like this one created by @themessypainter), our styling, and some stunning floral clippings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And brides, if you're curious about if you should encorporate a touch of old color on your wedding day, the answer is yes! You can always keep the overall aesthetic classic and timeless by having your bridesmaids and groomsmen in neutral colors while finding the right places for the color- like your florals and invitation suite! 😉
