Griffin here to brighten up your Monday!
Fun fact: Lu&J started out with me taking pictures of my dogs! It blossomed into ”hey can you snap a few pictures of our family” to “can you take my senior pictures”. Nothing consistent just something fun to do on the side. I booked a shoot with @graciedays November of 2017, and we hit it off with our love for animals. Fast forward a few months she asked me about my pictures. Taught me a few things like actually shooting in RAW, and broke down the mechanics for me. My photography improved tremendously! Fast forward a few more months and she asked me to second shoot for a wedding one night bc her original second shooter backed out😅 I was TERRIFIED!! A WEDDING. I had only taken pictures of people I knew, which made directing them easy, you have ZERO redos, and this is the biggest day of these two peoples lives. Anyone who knows me knows I go with the flow, and I’m not one to stress. YALL LET ME TELL YOU I WAS STRESSIN!!! But after the wedding I was so encouraged! I had fallen in love with wedding photography and just hearing everyone’s stories..so fast forward a few more months (September 16, 2018) I upgraded my gear, got the courage to make a business name, and started Lu&J, and second shot some more weddings with Gracie with so much more confidence! Since then I’ve met so many awesome people along the way and I couldn’t thank @graciedays enough for believing in me and helping me grow! Also couldn’t have done it without @katelynhoffpauirdesign for literally creating my logo and designing my page spur of the moment at 9 o’clock at night! I’ve got the best creative boss babes surrounding me!
