Born out of love, fueled by passion, and sustained through perseverance — husband and wife photography teams can create amazing things together. But working with the person you love also has its challenges. Even though many couples imagine sharing a life, only a few dare to work with each other in business. We reached out to three couples to find out their secrets to working successfully with their partner, and here’s what they had to say.[···]
Every February, the U.S. and other parts of the world celebrate Black History Month to honor the contributions of African-Americans and their culture. Hit by slavery in the past and racism to date, this community has had a journey worth knowing and respecting. This year’s Black History Month is more significant with grown awareness and the development of the Black Lives Matter movement all over the world. We, at ShootDotEdit, stand in solidarity and celebrate this month with a feature story on the very talented wedding photographer and ShootDotEdit customer Flavio DeBarros.[···]

What does award winning New York wedding photographer and ShootDotEdit customer Orlando Oliveira know about running a successful wedding business? Is is about selling your products or services more and more? Or ensuring the return of your clients each time they need a service like yours?

When we asked him his secret to success Orlando said it’s all about a great client experience that compliments the amazing products and services you offer.
And we’re here to bring you The Rave — our monthly customer celebration.

Featuring Jorge Santiago Photography
We have all heard someone say to us once – “just be yourself!” But it’s not always easy! Who is it you want to be? What does “be yourself” mean to you? Many of us try to emulate our elders and some tried to be like that one cool classmate — the classmate who received all the attention and had a big group of friends. Many of us would understand the struggle of trying to be like that person — AKA just trying to fit in. But that isn’t really being yourself.
Jorge Santiago experienced this when he migrated from Mexico to the US. But this was no small classroom affair. It was a totally different country, a different culture, and a different language. What made it more difficult for Jorge was the fact that he wasn’t even fluent in English. He tried hard to fit in, to blend in the crowd and find work as a photographer. His success came only when he finally embraced being himself.[···]
So excited for this month’s Rave – a customer celebration! These photos are absolutely STUNNING! So stunning in fact, I don’t want to waste too much time here in the intro.
You all know these are the 8 most loved images from our Instagram in August, right?
Then let’s get to it![···]
