Being a business owner allows you the opportunity to wear many hats.  Photographer, office manager, website designer, blogger, marketing team, album designer, editor, the list goes on and on and I love it!  I enjoy having the possibility of doing something new everyday.  Now if only I could create a machine that would make each day 48 hours instead of 24 hours and would make sleep an option instead of a necessity… 🙂  That would be AWESOME!

This weekend I set aside Sunday to film the first part of my new promo video!  I have a lot of surprises in store and I can’t wait to see this project come to life.  For now, I will leave you with a sweet note from one of my  brides who plays an invaluable role in the film, Tara.  Thank you for making my day. 🙂

Hi Amy,

Thank you so much for asking Kris and I to be a part of the event yesterday. It was so wonderful to spend time with you and Mekina, and it was fun to meet the other couples and the film crew! 

Kris and I are always happy to do whatever we can to help you continue to build and develop your business. We truly believe in you as a professional and as a person, and we cannot tell enough people how thrilled we are to have worked with you and gotten to know you. We truly want to do whatever we can to support you as your clients and your friends. 

Although there is a value on the pictures you provide, the experience you offer and the way you make people feel are invaluable. Not every photographer offers the intangibles that you do, and that is a true testament to who you are as a person. You and Mekina exude such joy and love in all that you do, and that impacts everyone around you in such a profoundly positive way. You two are more than just “photographers” and that is what makes working with you such a unique experience. 

The next time you come up with an idea for a new way to promote ARP, whether through another video, or a photo shoot, or whatever else you come up with, please know you can count on Kris and I as willing participants. 

Hopefully we will see you before November 8th, but either way we are so excited to shoot with you again!



And because every post is better with photos, here is a behind the scenes look at part one of the shoot. 🙂

A big thanks to John of JMA Visuals and his crew for doing an amazing job!

I always love spending the day with Mekina.  Thanks for taking all of the behind the scenes photos!  And for just being awesome.

All the filming took place on the terrace at 320 Studios.

I’m not going to lie…one of my favorite parts of the day was sitting in the director’s chair!

Most importantly, a big thank you to Tara + Kris, Alyssa + Michael, and Kristen + Will for taking time out of your Sunday to support me.  I appreciate it more than you will ever know!
