Meet Erica!



Meet Erica. Our new intern.

Let's be real for a minute. As AWESOME of a blessing as it is for a husband and wife to get to work together on a business like Geoff and I do, it's also really hard. Don't get me wrong - having my husband to shoot and work alongside of me is more than I could ask for. It's really a lot of fun and I wouldn't have it any other way. But to be honest, it's hard on our marriage sometimes.

As many of you know, Geoff works full time doing motion graphics for our church - Elevation Church. As our business started to grow, we saw a lifestyle change. Geoff would get off from work and head straight to the computer to tackle the projects I had asked him to help me with. Since he was working, I thought I might as well be too. So, night after night, we found ourselves in separate rooms consumed with work until 1....2...in the morning. Not exactly practicing a healthy balance of work and life.

With 30 weddings on the books for 2009, we knew we needed help. Enter Erica. AMAZING Erica. :)

What are you looking to get from this internship?
A library of new knowledge of the wedding photography industry - from engagement to the big day, and everything in between. Creative inspiration and technical skills.
