@allisonewingphotography

Allison is a wedding & lifestyle photographer and certified yoga teacher in Cleveland, Ohio. After dealing with anxiety for years, she turned to yoga to find some relief. Not only did she find the relief she desperately needed, but she also found a desire to spread mindfulness and self-care to others through yoga. Allison is now on a mission to help other creatives incorporate yoga and breathing techniques into their daily lives.
When she’s not taking photos or teaching yoga, Allison can be found spending time with her husband, buying more plants for her office and searching for the best sprinkle donut in Northeast Ohio.

After moving from Vermont to Cleveland in 2018, she created a FB ad strategy that fully booked out her first year back with 30 weddings!

@elisabethannephotography

Liz is the face and camera behind Elisabeth Anne Photography. She is a nationally published photographer, based out of North Canton Ohio. When she is not behind the camera her hands are literally full holding her twin babes and chasing around her 4 year old boy. Her shooting style focuses on the magic of happiness and self love and finding the unique sparkle that each girl shines with. She allows REAL life to inspire her and shape her journey as a photographer, always recognizing that the little moments do mean the most, even when it means stepping on a lego before she has had her coffee.

Blogging & Getting Published

@hannahbryerton

Hannah is a portrait and wedding photographer based in Western New York State. She specializes in serving sweet couples, but will NEVER pass up the opportunity to photograph a cute, snuggly family in the middle of summer golden-hour! Hannah is married to her ridiculously handsome husband, Jesse (who she just so happened to meet while photographing his sister's wedding), proving that she takes her job of loving clients SO seriously that she will LITERALLY become part of the family and start showing up to Christmas every year. Hannah truly loves what she does within the wedding industry, but she prides herself on the fact that, at the end of the day, she's most well-known for her overconsumption of Chick-fil-A, extreme love of golden retrievers and ability to make friends with just about anyone!

@diblasiophoto

I'm Chad, I'm a Central Ohio based wedding and portrait photographer with a serious passion for stories and creating the life my wife and I have always dreamed about. When I'm not busy with my 5 kiddos, watching This is Us (with my wife cuz she makes me...) or making things, I spend my time pinning home improvement wishes and learning about essential oils- I'm actually a bit of a hippie. I thoroughly enjoy laughing, riding motorcycles, working with my hands and a nicely edged yard. I've been shooting for a shade over a decade and I love to talk tech and help other entrepreneurs grow business through education and inspiration.

Selling your Soul - Aligning your business to bring fulfillment and prosperity to your life and business

Keynote 

@_lorenjackson_

Loren is an Ohio based wedding photographer where she lives with her husband, Josh, and their busy, bossy, and beautiful toddler daughter, Charlotte! 
After quitting her teaching job in 2016 and going full-time with her business, Loren learned quickly how unbalanced work/life could get it. A few heartfelt conversations with her husband led Loren to draw some boundaries in her business. Those boundaries have set Loren's business up for success while actually taking time off to give her family the undivided attention they deserve.  
The balance was shaken again in December 2017 when Charlotte Grace joined the family! A whole new challenge was given to Loren. How to run a successful wedding photography business while being the best wife and momma to her husband and baby girl.  
Through trial and error, Loren has implemented some tried and true systems to keeping a happy home, while also serving her clients well!

Stephanie Kase is a wedding photographer and educator based in Columbus, Ohio. After photographing over 100 weddings over the past five years, she's had the pleasure of serving SO many Stephanie Kase Couples and it brings her so much joy! When she's not shooting weddings, one of her passions is also educating to her photographers to also grow their own businesses. When she's not running her business, you can probably find her drinking a chai latte, hanging out with her hubby, or snuggling her adorable Sheepadoodle puppy, Ember.

Building a Strategic Personal Brand

@jen.kaiser

As a former nurse, Jen is a believer that photographers can live a holistic, well balanced life while creating a business they love. For her, that means breaking down post-processing into an efficient system that allows photographers to achieve consistency and outsource easily. She loves spending her time in both the creative and analytic world. So it goes without saying that she's used that critical thinking approach to simplify her business, and work smarter, not harder as a photographer, editor and creative entrepreneur.

@anchorandveil

Anyone who knows us knows that we are passionate about photography, business and helping others to live they life they want and enjoy the job of their dreams. In the photography industry, there is an interesting distinction between really good photographers who aren't the best business people or really good business people who aren't the best photographers. We want to help bridge that gap and think that we can! With extensive boot-strap business experience we think we have the knowledge and experience to teach others how to do the same!

@sirpillasoirees


I'm Nicole, and I enjoy working hand in hand with genuine couples to make sure their weddings are what they have always dreamed of, and so much more. From full planning & design, to finalizing the little details and creating your custom, color-coded timeline, I'm your girl. 

We have had the absolute honor of being apart of over 100 uniquely beautiful weddings, being published by nationally renowned wedding blogs, being named "best-of" by the knot & wedding wire every year since our first full season in 2018, and we've made unforgettable friendships with some of the most talented & humble vendors & venues in Northeast Ohio.

@sarahreneestudios

Fueled by equal parts Dunkin coffee and passion, Sarah spend her days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down.

She is a believer in real moments and the kind of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. She also believes in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

Whenever she picks up her camera, she strives to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them that can live on for generations to come.
