In 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!”
This husband and wife team brings their zest for life with them all around the globe as international wedding photographers. 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!
When they are home in Indiana, you will find these two brewing their perfect cup of coffee, grabbing a cup at their local cafe, or serving coffee to their friends at their home. “We bought our dining table first, then found a house that it could fit in. this is not a lie.“
While they take their enthusiasm for life with them wherever they go, they have not come by their success without hard work. “The best advice is the most simple. Do the work. We were always taught that if you put in the time, practice and hard work, success will come as a natural byproduct.” What better way to enjoy your hard-earned success than traveling the world with your love? We look forward to watching Cory and Jackie travel the world, working hard, making lemonade from lemons, or making coffee from beans.
