Rachel and I met through The Heart University. If you don’t know what that is, head over to the link to learn more! The Heart University is an online community and resource center for creative business entrepreneurs (like photographers!) to come together, cheer each other on, learn business tips and practices, and become better at posing, editing, and everything in between. It’s truly a beautiful, motivational, and encouraging community and I’m so glad I became a part of it this year! Rachel has been a part of The Heart for a few years now, and so we met via the Facebook group (Rachel asked if I could second shoot for her) and now our friendship has developed into sharing recipes, dumb jokes, encouragement, and even getting tea (and cream puffs!) at the Herban Market in Franklin. It’s been sweet to have another photographer friend who understands the business, lives in the area, who can share her knowledge with me and swap wedding stories together (yes, this is a thing photographers do. I don’t know why, but it’s so fun to talk about our clients and our failures and good things from wedding days). If you want to check out her work, click here.
