We’ve always believed that forming a strategy is impossible until you’re clear on what your values and principles are. Without values and principles to guide you, making decisions can seem impossibly difficult. Given how important setting values and principles is to decision making we asked folks we admire to tell us about the values or principles that matter most to them.

A principle that I will never forget…or should I say the secret sauce to personal and professional success for me, is Consistency. I learned this from a mentor early in my career stage and this principle has crossed over into everything that I do. The great thing about Consistency is that you can consistently do something that has led to a positive outcome or realize a behavior that you are doing that is impeding on your success. No new skills are needed! If you’ve done it once, you can do it again! If you’re going to dedicate your energy, mind, time, enthusiasm, and intelligence into anything, just be consistent.

Even if someone doesn’t I’m empowered to still show him or her love because it’s positively impacting their life, which I always want to do for others. Read more>>

As adventure elopement and wedding photographers, we spend a lot of time outdoors photographing couples exploring State and National Parks. It’s a huge privilege to be able to enjoy such amazing public lands (National Parks, State Parks, National Forests, Wilderness Areas, BLM lands, + more) and use them as a backdrop for celebrating your wedding day or engagement! With that, comes the responsibility for all of us to respect the land and to keep it looking amazing. That way our couples can go back to the exact spot in 10, 20, or 50 years, and it will still look and feel the same as when they said their vows. Read more>>
