Grace and Jaden are crazy in love, full of energy and they never take themselves too seriously. They are known for their fun personalities, and their laid back style. They are addicted to the beautiful PNW, junkies for a hot cup of coffee, and hopelessly devoted to their two pups. They specialize in photographing weddings, and people in love. They have been featured in numerous online publications and blogs, and have won several online awards for their work.
Grace is the co-owner of Beyond the Wanderlust, an inspirational blog for photographers, and she is also a regular contributor for Epiphanie Camera Bags Blog, The Daily Epiphanie.
Grace and Jaden, what camera do you use and what is your favorite lens?
Mark III, and Mark II. We each have our own favorites, Grace LOVES her 35 1.4L, while Jaden prefers the 135L
Do you edit mostly in Photoshop or Lightroom?
Why do you think honest critique on your images is important?
You have to take a step back from your own work sometimes. Having a fresh set of eyes on your images will help you see things you might have missed otherwise!
What 3 words would you use to describe your style?
Fun, exciting, colorful
Where do you pull your inspiration from?
We are super inspired by each other, and by our clients. We are crazy in love with each other, and we LOVE spending time with other people in love. We seem to attract the most awesome people on the planet.
What is one specific way that you balance work and family?
Working with your spouse is pretty much amazing. We don’t have any kids, so every second we spend together is “family time.” There is nothing we love more than road-tripping, car dancing, and coffee drinking our way to a wedding!
Best biz/photo advice?
Invest in a good chair, your back will thank you. Also, have a contract for everything.
How does your business deal with the rise in photographers. What have you done to standout and compete?
At the beginning of the year we decided to specialize in couples and weddings. We also decided to own our craziness, and we implemented that into our brand. We don’t really believe in competing, instead we just want to be who WE are!
Where have most of your 2013/2014 clients come from (besides WOM)?
Facebook! It’s bananas. We’ve also been getting a lot of new clients from Pinterest and Instagram lately!
What has been the best workshop or convention you’ve attended so far?
Uh, confession, we’ve never gone to any workshops. We’re completely self taught.
What is your most popular product?
Pixieset Galleries, and Leather Photo Albums
