Featured Showiteers – Cory & Jackie Phillips

.

coryIn 2008, Cory and Jackie were faced with a large financial challenge. Two months after they were married they both lost their corporate jobs. Unemployed in a plummeting job market with few job prospects, they threw all their money in one hat. “We had only photographed a handful of weddings at the time, and someone suggested we do a bridal show, so we spent our last paychecks and wedding money, paid for the bridal show and we booked 12 weddings at the bridal show and did a total of 22 weddings that year! We didn't realize you could be a full time photographer and losing our jobs definitely encouraged us to pursue it!”

Though they call the Mid-west home, their wanderlust is strong! “10 countries in 6 years, and the journey is just beginning.” Even as we were gathering information for this article, they had flown from their home in Indianapolis to Mexico to shoot a wedding!
