HONEYBOOK CITY LAUNCH IN WASHINGTON, DC!

         Wow! Can I just say it again? Wow! I’m still overwhelmed from yesterday’s launch of HoneyBook in DC! The event was phenomenal! Great speakers, awesome food and drinks, and the creatives that surrounded me inspired me more! Oh, and did I mention that I got to meet one of the founders of the Rising Tide Society, Natalie, and Kat Schmoyer of Dear Sweetheart Events? But wait! I also got the chance to chat with my mentor, Abby, of Abby Grace Photography and her cool husband, Matt! They were so awesome! Such a great couple and so down to earth! Very giving! And the impact that they do to the wedding industry is unprecedented!          Also, I got to see some of my friends in the wedding industry and met new talented creatives. I cannot wait for what’s in store for Joffoto being surrounded by such talented people. Did I hear collaboration? Yes! HoneyBook encourages vendors and creatives to use the new feature in their platform that is called “Collectives.” It’s an easier way to connect and work with your creative peers within the HoneyBook platform, giving the best experience for your clients. How cool is that?          Anyway, I didn’t take a lot of photos yesterday because I just wanted to enjoy the night and absorb all the good vibes. So what I did was take photos of the goody bag from HoneyBook and the cool stuff inside it. Take a peek! [smile] What’s inside the goody bag and more! I just started snapchat a couple of weeks ago, this pamphlet is perfect!...

SUNDAY SOIREE

         Last weekend, my friends from Tuesday’s Together put together a lovely dinner.  My wife and I were able to attend and had a great experience! We met so many creatives all over the DMV area! We circled and chatted with old friends and made new ones as well! I must say, there is no other group in the world that truly embraces and promotes #communityovercompetition!          The barn was fully decorated, it was just like attending an intimate wedding reception! The door greeted us with lit white candles on the floor and rustic lamp cages. As soon as we entered the barn, a beautiful view delighted our eyes and glasses of wine were left and right! We had to start the night right! [smile]          The beautiful tables were decorated by three talented creatives who poured their hearts and talents to create a masterpiece! See the names of the designers below. Our pretty plates! I always see my name on a plate like this on weddings I shoot but on this day, I was a guest! [smile] The gorgeous and yummy cake by Evan! A couple of our photographer friends took some photos of us! Many thanks Brett and Brittany!
