One of my favorite things about weddings is seeing the support that surrounds the couple, not just for their wedding day, but for their entire marriage. Lauren and Slade’s wedding day was nothing short of a testament for their love for Jesus, each other, and their friends and family. They have truly surrounded themselves with genuine people who love and care for them and their sweet little daughter. We loved way they honored their guests that we’re able to attend and the ones that will forever be in hearts.
And so it begins.
It’s a new day and a new journey. The dream was dreamt and now the reality of that dream is coming to life. His & Hers Creative was a dream but not one that we had when were sleeping then woke up and only remembered the minor details. This is a dream that has been cultivated out long days and tireless nights. It has been crafted over many hours and a lot of failed ideas. His & Hers is Corinne and I saying, we are husband and wife and we can make this work TOGETHER. Sure, we have our own niches, but as a whole we do this thing together.
As you can tell by now this post is going to be a little different from the title. I do want to introduce myself but I hate talking about myself so this will have a little more depth to it, so back to His & Hers Creative.
We believe you can be married and work together. This is because we believe in each other and we are each others BIGGEST fans. Corinne has strengths that frankly, I suck at. In return, I give my best to the things she lacks at. We fill in each others gaps and compliment each others strengths. Do we disagree? Yes, all the time. Does Corinne get annoyed with me when I don’t stay organized? Absolutely. Do we piss each other off by pushing those little buttons? Yup. But that does not stop us from humbling ourselves so the other person can thrive and step into the lane that they are better at.
We yell, we talk, we compromise and we DO NOT keep score.
Side note: When I talk loudly, most of the time Corinne thinks I am yelling. I am not and we joke about this all the time. If you know me, I am a loud person so my talking voice sounds like yelling sometimes. We can all thank my mother for giving me that trait. Love you mom!
I guess, I am telling you all of this because I wanted to make sure you knew why we joined what we do together. We could of easily did separate things and promoted ourselves individually, but this is so much more than just Jake or Corinne. This is our attempt to give back to the world by being excited about marriage and about doing life together. In a culture that has lost its drive to love and stay committed even when it hurts, we want marriages to work. We are going to do everything we can to shine light on this beautiful and challenging coming together of a man and a woman.
So we have joined forces. We brought our creative juices together and now you have photography, videography, and design all under one canopy. The future is only as vast as we want to give to it. We are excited and ready for the years ahead!
As for me, my name is Jake.
I like cold brew coffee, surfing, soccer, dogs, Ohio sports and all things creativity. When the surf is good you can find me in the line-up. On rainy days, you can find me sipping on some homemade cold brew… Who am I kidding? Everyday you can find me sipping on that delicious goodness. I like simplistic design that has the ability to pass the test of time and I enjoy cinematography that tugs at your heart. I snap photos because I like to freeze moments in time and I have a radiant wife that looks so good in front of the lens so I take photos of her.
This is me.
My name is Corinne. I’m a Northern girl, livin’ in the South. I’m a Jesus lover, adventure seeker, latte drinker, lazy morning lover, beach bum, sunset watcher, and lover of a good story. I’m always up for a random dance party or a brownie sundae. I tend to use too many exclamation points when I text and too many ‘happy faced’ emojis. I’m married to the most incredible man named, Jake. We have been married for over three years and one day we’ll be parents to the cutest little golden doodle!
Jake and I recently started our business, His and Hers Creative in 2016 and have been loving every minute of this new adventure together. We started this business in hopes to make a positive impact and use the gifts God gave use to glorify Him. We want to tell peoples stories so we started a visual-storytelling business in hopes to do just that.
Photography has always been something I’ve enjoyed and wanted to pursue, but there was always something hold me back: the fear of not being good enough, not creative enough, or not being able to capture the ‘right’ moment. Over time I’ve realized that photography isn’t a hobby where you can pick up your camera and excel at it over night. It takes time, patience, and practice… lots of practice.
The reason why I choose to strongly pursue wedding photography is because I love weddings and I believe in marriage! Marriage is the most beautiful, challenging, adventurous, and rewarding thing God ever created. This is the day where you commit the rest of your life to someone you love. I want to be able capture all the feelings of the day, be able to pray with you, and celebrate this incredible journey you’re beginning!
Going after a dream is scary, but so worth the risk. I’m not sure where photography will take me or even this blog for that matter but I can’t wait to see where I end up, and the people I will meet along the way.
Thanks for following along on my photography journey. Enjoy!
