Monika - You two are truly remarkable. Thank you for your hard work and diligent efforts to make changes in others' lives, and especially in their marriages. This work is so worthwhile! Immensely grateful for your honesty and vision.

damian burcher - Hey congrats on the top wedding photographer award, think I found at about you guys few months ago and have been a fan since.

Heidi + Kevin - It's the best thing you could do for yourself, your marriage and your love of making images that matter. You will not regret it. We don't. :)

Dee - Dave and I had to sit down when we read this, what a great idea! we would love nothing more than to break bread with others that are going through the same experiences as us, love, love love the idea. It is a times like this we regret not having a teletransporter or our own private jet! :-) such a shame Ireland is so far away and our own wedding is in May, otherwise we would be there in two seconds flat, we will be at the next one for sure! :-)

Julia - You two are so special.. Adore and love you both and your sweet boys. Big hugs.

this is the story of how we made 8 amazing friends and then photographed them (the b r e a d w i n n e r s workshop)

We had the BIG honor of hosting the first ever b r e a d w i n n e r s workshop in our home earlier this week (breadwinners is a workshop that is just for married couples who run photography businesses together). It was a big dream of ours to be able to […]

jade - hey Parsons, any word on another'n of these? :)

heidi + kevin - woot woot! can't waaaaaait!

Brad + Jen Butcher - awwww yeeeeeaahhh!!

Evalyn - Love this!! It sounds exactly like what we need and would grow from. We would love to attend this one but can't afford the time and money to make it from Aust. for Feb. If you host a future one, we will definitely be keen to book. All the best

c&j - we would SO LOVE to do this but it's not in the budget right now (paying hospital bills off)...please have another in the future and we'll be there!! Sounds really fun!

Rebecca - My husband and I aren't in business together (although I think that would be the coolest thing EVER!), but I just wanted to comment how cool I think this is, and if my husband ever quit his art teaching job & decided to join me in photography, i'd TOTALLY do this!

Jeff - YAY! This sounds amazing!
