photography podcast

With a slight (okay, substantial) delay, we are thrilled to finally bring you part one of the “Live at the Brick Factory” episode. This episode is audio only for the podcast feed but we will be posting video to the website shortly. In the first part we admit to some wedding blunders we’ve experienced, discuss how and why we watermark (or don’t watermark) our online images, and end with a great interview with Jared Bauman about pricing.

Part 2 will be released next week with our interview with Leeann Marie!
