Take heed, loyal listeners! Flothemes, a Wordpress template creator which I have promoted on this podcast, and which I use on five active websites, is closing up shop.

Listen to this special bonus episode for all the relevant details. Personally, I am very disappointed in how this entire situation has been handled by Flothemes and Pixieset, which acquired Flothemes in 2021.

Do you really have to know anything about weddings to be a wedding photographer? I guess that depends on the situation, right? Are you in a Hallmark movie? If so, the answer is probably a resounding, "NO!"

Listen, I understand that I should not expect every movie that features a photographer to portray the profession in depth or with 100% accuracy. That being said, I do expect there to be at least some connection to reality.

Luckily, today there are other options.

In this episode of the podcast, I speak with Connecticut portrait photographer, L...
