2019 | It’s Like Grad School



Happy New Year Friends, Brides, Brides-To-Be, Mom and Grandma! 😉 I am so so stinking excited about what is to come this year. I am working full time at Taco Time to 100% fund my education as a Fine Art Wedding Photographer. Every month, I will have education goals and be sharing who I am studying under.

2015: SJP Was Born. I spent the year wanting to throw my laptop across the room and torch my camera as I learned the ins and outs of the digital photography world.
2016: I figured out a formula to book as many weddings as I wanted and got to work doing exactly that.
2017: …I learned what it felt like to be OVERBOOKED OVERWORKED and UNDERVALUED.
2018: I recovered from 2017. Started a few intensive photography classes. Photographed 23 weddings and learned what a comfortable schedule felt like for me and my family. I looked up from my laptop and noticed I wasn’t in the “style” of photography I wanted to be in.
2019: Decided to “go back to school” to become the best damn fine art wedding photographer you’ve ever met.

January Education Goals & Classes:

My main focus for January is completing all of the education I’ve already invested in. This month I will be influenced by:

Katelyn James

KJ All Access. I will be discontinuing my subscription with this at the end of the month!

I have found my desire to be influenced by a different approach to wedding photography.

Amy & Jordan Demos 

Posing Course. I’ve completed about 90% of this course so I just need to circle around to the end.

Kylee Ann Studios

Currently in 90 Days of Marketing. Need to circle back to review updates to the Complete Marketing Course.

Justin & Mary

Black & White Editing/Working with their Monochrome Collection. I am about 60% through the J&M Lighting Course.

It was this course that made me realize the difference between where I am, and where I want to be with clear vision. 

Getting a little balsy here but (seo) watch me become…

Written July 2022 To all the LGBTQ people who fell in love with their best friend on accident. I see you. This was mine. I hope you find healing, too. To the girl I loved first, I’m 31 now. I think you turned 30 last month. I’ll bet you celebrated in a beautiful way. I […]

To the girl I loved first.

Della and Jim had a beautiful family and friends wedding celebration in Monroe, Washington at the Blue Boy West Golf Course. Check out another wedding I’ve photographed at this location HERE! There was so much delicious food and hours of dancing! Jim had commissioned a dance to propose to Della. At the reception, he taught […]

Hi, there. I’m back. Let’s book Spring 2023 Family Photos. I know I have to prove it. It’s been a wild few years since Rona and it’s taken me a long time and a lot of heavy consideration to come back to shooting full time. We’ll take it one day at a time. Baby steps! […]

Spring 2023 Family Photos

Something all of my readers should know if you don’t already? My updates are never permanent. Not even close. What we’re “for sure” up to one week might change in a random two hour conversation at 10:00pm on a Tuesday. I love that for our life. I love having time and location freedom. I feel […]
