I don’t know about you, but I am a podcast addict. I will admit it. That is the first step of healing right? Luke loves to turn on a TV show when he is bored or needs a distraction. Me? I crave podcasts. There is nothing like a good podcast that can make the everyday drudgery of folding laundry something to look forward to!
I think I really do have a problem and I am constantly scouring the trending now to see what is new! I definitely have a FOMO syndrome when it comes to podcasts.
Now that I have set the tone of how much I love them, let’s move on!
This honestly shouldn’t surprise you. If you know Luke and I, you know that we are always diving into something. We actually started this podcast awhile back. It is called The Unconventional Life. It is about doing business in a way that works for you. In a world that striving to be cookie cutter we dare you to be unconventional.
We loved our first season! The incredible people we interviewed were so much fun and full of energy! One of our favorites were with Gareth Pon Episode 6. Gareth talks about how everyone should have one ridiculous dream that they believe can come true. He is definitely a dream chaser and such an inspiration so definitely check this episode out!
Our second season is something that we will be pursuing in the near future and we cannot wait to meet more amazing entrepreneurs!
We are fortunate to have some incredibly creative couples! One of our couples Jon & Ashley had the wedding of their dreams by incorporating pineapples, and all things color for their summer outer banks wedding. We had so much fun shooting the wedding and got some amazing pictures from it.
A little while after the wedding, I got a text from Ashley sending me links from Yahoo, Coastal Living, and more. Their wedding had gone viral due to her obsession with pineapples! If you know Ashley and check out her work, you will definitely why!
During all the excitement, we got a call from Rev. Clint Hufft. Clint is one of the host on The Wedding Ceremony Podcast and he wanted to feature us on an upcoming episode. He had seen the viral pineapple wedding and we wanted to get some more insight to their day. The experience was fun and it was different being on the other side of the mic being interviewed.
Paul & Cinnamon are good friends of ours. We met them 2 years ago at the Connect retreat in Rome GA. The retreat is geared towards couples in business and these two were some of our favorite people we got to hang out with while we were there. Cinnamon is a photographer,editor,podcast producer, and so much more! Her wealth of knowledge is so beneficial in our industry and when she and Paul decided to do a podcast we knew they would knock it out of the park.
Cinnamon reached out to us about a year ago asking us to be on the show. She knew we offered Hands-On workshops for OCF ( Off-camera-flash), and she wanted to hear all the details about what we teach.
This is why Cinnamon and Paul called this episode Taking the Scary out of OCF.
In this episode we dig deep into what gear we use, simple set ups and why photographers should aim at perfecting their OCF skills so that they can stand out from their competition.
I will say, I am not a fan of my voice. My strength is also not in public speaking. I was so worried beforehand that we would be awful! However, thanks to Cinnamon and her speaking skills and her way to guide the conversation, we stayed on subject and had a great time!
