Back in 2010, counsel for creatives was pretty much nonexistent. I spent much of my humble beginnings flying solo when it came to contracts and I knew that had to change. So, I became an artist and attorney.
Today, I continue to photograph weddings under my legally savvy and sound business, while helping others to achieve the same level of success in their own enterprise.
Because when I became a photographer ten years ago, legal guidance came from Google.
