CONNECT 2015 Registration Opens Wednesday!

After two successful years of CONNECT retreat, it is time to launch registration for CONNECT 2015!! If you are married and work with your spouse (or are considering it!), and want to getaway, learn from industry leaders and refresh, refocus, and RELAX then this is for you. This is for any married couple regardless of how long you have been married or how long or short you have been working together.   Registration opens: Wednesday, (June 18th) 10:00am CST Seating is Limited | Early bird rate expires Monday, June 30th ABOUT CONNECT: We will be the FIRST to admit that working with your spouse isn’t easy all of the time and neither is having a healthy marriage with that! There are so many extra dynamics of working with your spouse and it brings up so many questions on how to run a highly successful business while having a highly successful marriage and family life at the same time. As couples who work together, it is a necessity to have times to get away, refocus, and learn and grow from industry leading couples who have gone through the hard growing pains and have come out the other end a success. We want to provide this opportunity for us all to learn from each other and walk away encouraged, inspired and renewed. This is what CONNECT is. SPEAKERS: We are honored to have the following married teams bring their insight and wisdom. Jeff & Julia Woods We have the utmost respect for this couple. They have been in the industry for over 20 years and have awards and credits to their... Read More

What you all have been waiting for – A Married Couples Retreat

It has been on our hearts for a while to meet a need that we have seen in the photography community – the need for married couples who do this together to be encouraged, refreshed and gain extra guidance and wisdom on how to make working together WORK as well as balance the craziness of life, being married, and for some of us, kids. We have teamed up with two other couples who share the same vision – Karen & Isaac Stott, Michael & Katelyn James  – to meet this need and we will be bringing in some amazing industry leaders we can all learn from and grow together in our marriages. We introduce to you: More information will be released this week.  Make sure to sign up for the Married Couples Newsletter as we communicate more information.... Read More
