After nearly 8 years in the wedding industry, you come to learn it's filled with fluff. Things that couples and vendors alike are told to do, to expect, to create, often without intention or meaning.
This space is meant to provide resources and education for photographers invested in created a business model with meaning. With reason. With experience. That will last.
And my promise to you? No fluff in the process. Only the information and resources you need to grow, to shift, to live a life that fulfills both your business and your joy.
Hey, it's Makayla. I'm a Minnesota based wedding photojournalist.
I photographed my first wedding in 2014 and what came after could only be described as an endless pursuit to only do that, for the rest of my life.
I started photographing professionally in 2012, which means I'm coming up on my 10th year in the photography industry. And there's a lot that feels like home, but a lot that's ready for change.
Together, we're going to create that wave. We're going to be those photographers that focus on creating images with intention, on building businesses with space for growth, on timeless principles and only praising what matters.
There's no hustle here, no burnout here, no late-night editing or having to say, "sorry, (honey, baby, puppy) I'm busy".
Together, we're building businesses that leave room for breathing.
