There is so much that goes into running a successful wedding photography business and it can be a great experience to get to share that load with someone who has the same passion as you – and more importantly – is someone you love. Different husband and wife wedding photography teams have different ways to succeed, but what’s common in all of them is the love they share with their partner. Joe and Darryl Ann of Salt and Pine Photo are no exception! This husband and wife team not only knows how to successfully operate as a photography duo but also how to successfully operate as introverts in the wedding industry.[···]
The Power of Love: A Husband & Wife Photographer Feature with Natalie & Brandon of Studio N Photography
Love, passion, and commitment – the journey to be a successful husband and wife photography team takes all three. Staying centered in your relationship while being successful in your business means finding a common vision and building strong bonds that will be tested. But even if it takes every ounce of strength, compassion, and patience in you to keep going, it’s worth it – especially for ShootDotEdit customers Natalie and Brandon of Studio N Photography. When we asked these husband and wife photographers to share their story, we got the ups and downs, highs and lows, and what it takes to make it work.[···]
Most working moms will tell you that being a professional and a mom takes time and patience. At ShootDotEdit, we are amazed and inspired by strong female photographers who seem to do it all and make it look easy. More than that, we also love when women inspire other women to go out there and get what they want from life. What better way to mark Women’s History Month than to celebrate those women! For this feature story, we spoke to Diane Clifford of Diane Nicole Photography. She is a full-time photographer (for the past six years), mother of two, and a ShootDotEdit customer and we asked her about her journey and all that she has achieved so far.[···]
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.

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.[···]

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.[···]
