2016 was a huge year for us, filled with joy, love, laughter, and some BIG changes. After nearly 10 years in the wedding photography business, we swam into unknown waters when we decided to expand our husband + wife team into a larger “husband + wife + sister-in-law” team (Yes. If you didn’t already know, Grace and Kera are sisters). This growth came at the perfect time, with my weekends almost completely booked, we were now able to provide the same amazing services to twice as many couples! And as we sit here at the beginning of 2017 and reflect back on last year, I’m filled with pride to see how well Kera fit in, and how quickly she became an essential part of our business.
But all of this retrospective talk is not what this post is about. In fact, quite the opposite! Today, we are thrilled to introduce the next addition to our photography team… Josh Ohms. This man has talent oozing out of him, and is undeniably one of the best photographers I know. We instantly became friends seven years ago, just prior to our move from Chicago back to Ohio. Since our first meeting, Josh has photographed easily 100 or more weddings alongside me. That’s a lot of weddings! So to say that I trust him is a colossal understatement. He is a great friend, a true professional, and deeply loves creating art with his camera.
“It’s been a long time coming. Michael and Grace have been working on getting me to join them for years. Six years of persistence was worth it. I stayed in Chicago long enough to find my beautiful bride. Now my wife, Annie, and I are excited to finally enjoy this new chapter in joining The Carrs in creating lasting memories and beautiful art. Although I’ve been in Chicago over eight years, we are thrilled to be coming back home to Ohio to partner with one of my closest friends. We truly believe in what The Carrs are doing and if you ask Michael, he would say “it’s about time!” Now we’ll officially be part of the family!” -Josh
