If you run a photography business, you need Honeybook. Honeybook handles contracts, collecting payments, questionnaires, expense tracking, workflows and more. 

ShootProof works harder than any other proofing service out there because it not only beautifully delivers your work to your clients, but acts as an automated marketing machine and sales funnel.



The quality of your products, reflects back on the quality of your business. Because we position ourselves as the best of the best, that means our albums must also be the best of the best. Kiss gives us that consistency.

This is the photobooth designed for wedding photographers. It sets up in 5 minutes, the entire thing can be carried with one hand, and it doesn't require an attendee to operate it during the reception. Upsell it, or use it as an incentive to book more weddings.

The absolute best way to design and sell printed products to your clients. This is how you make money with Print.

Drink a beer and enjoy a movie. Life is too short to be bulk editing shitty pictures. Outsourcing your editing should be one of the very first things you do to grow your business and Freedom is the best in the business. (I know, I have worked with most of them)

Business Tools:

HONEYBOOK

Big Picture CPA

GUSTO

Unless you are a tax expert - you should save yourself a ton of money and few headaches and have someone handle your bookkeeping and filing of taxes. Big Picture CPA specializes in working with photographers and is who I use!

The best email service provider I have used (and I have used a lot) because they integrate with almost everything, have incredible delivery rates, and have just about any automation you can think of. (p.s. Automating stuff is good)



Yep, I listed it again. Whether or not you are a photographer. This tool is a business must-have. Honeybook handles contracts, collecting payments, questionnaires, expense tracking, workflows and more. 

Gusto makes sure I get paid, all of my contactors get paid, and all of the appropriate taxes get paid! It provides everyone with any and all tax documents at the end of the year making it completely painless to manage employees.

Lifestyle:

BLYT
HUCKBERRY

I literally donated my entire closet of shirts after I purchased my first 2 BYLT shirts. They are cut to fit your body, rather than just hang off it, they are incredibly durable (the blacks stay stark black) they don’t wrinkle, and are comfortable AF. These shirts will become your new staple premium everyday wear. 

This is where I go to get my premium quality fall, winter and all season outdoor apparel. I especially love their sweaters, button ups, and boots.
