Hi! I'm Cassie. Sentimental storyteller. Farm dweller. Dance-in-the-car driver. Expert dress-bustler. Yep. That's me. I'm a wife, mother and cookie dough lover. Connoisseur of iced coffees and a bit of a traveler. I'm incredibly passionate about my family and deathly afraid of spiders. I love books and writing and music. My favorites are on vinyl . Norah Jones, Adele and I are all on first name basis. I love spending time with my family by the campfire, worshiping God with our church, and photographing people who are in love.
I love weddings because I strongly believe in the beauty of marriage. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart and am a sucker for happy endings and new beginnings. I love the magic of seeing far off places but my favorite place in the world is home. My favorite season is fall. Because leggings. And boots. And lattes. Basically all the fall things. I believe in being intentional about creating memories that matter. And I believe in preserving them forever.
In 2015, I was asked to lead a styled shoot at the Showit United conference. It was there that I found a love for helping other photographers grow in their own passions and learn even more about their craft.
Since then, I've been teaching workshops around the US along with teaching at conferences and private mentoring sessions. We have two upcoming workshops in the Spring of 2018 and the Fall of 2018. Details will be released in January of 2018. Make sure and sign up for the newsletter to be kept in the loop for all the learning opportunities!
Because workshop opportunities are limited each year, the idea for the CJP Educational Resource shop was born. Here, you can find guides available to help you along your journey not only as a professional photographer or creative but as a hobbyist that wants to learn or a bride planning your wedding.
