Getting your studio (and personal life) organized can be a challenge sometimes, but oh-so-rewarding! Andie Reavely of A Visual Anthology is sharing how she's started her new year off right with The Big Picture Planner: "My first step was to find something I liked to use to contain my pages and found that I could upload custom designs to Zazzle.com! I ordered a custom printed 1-inch 3-ring binder and I love it! I feels professional and was easy to make it match my studio vibe.
Secondly, I used the suggested 32lb paper for my pages and sections; (it's the best paper choice and oh so smooth to write on!) Next, I ordered a bunch of darling washi paper tapes and gold jumbo paperclips to help me organize and block out times and days on my monthly and weekly schedules. Finally, I got to work brain storming goals and action steps!
I love how the sections continually remind me of my goals and to-do items—in both my business and personal time. The weekly overview sections really help me to focus my week and set tangible, manageable goals. I have a spacious standing desk that enables me to have the planner open and beside me throughout my work day, helping me maximize my time and brain space.
I also love the simplistic, yet versatile design of the template, which allowed for me to change and add a few sections that were relevant to my studio and workflow. Ah! And speaking of workflow, I am loving the streamlined workflow section! I feel peace of mind knowing that I won't forget something or lose track of any details, or forget what has been completed!"

The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
