Welcome Renee to MHP!

Bits & Pieces  |  Lindsey  |  Renee

Life is full of changes. New seasons bring new opportunities. At MHP we live life in the fast lane. We zip, zag and zoom. Along the way we enjoy each turn this journey takes. We’ve got a pretty amazing team of photographers at MHP. We care about each other, we care about our clients and we care about living lives that make a difference. When we find someone we connect with, we don’t like to let them go. That’s exactly what happened in 2010 when a brown headed college student entered our studio for an 8 week internship. Her name was Renee and in just 8 weeks she entwined herself around our teams heart. At the end of Renee’s internship, I offered her a job as a photographer at MHP. After much discussion, she turned me down but not because she didn’t want the job. She had plans to move home to Kansas and felt that was where she needed to be. Fast forward a few years, Renee met the love of her life here in the Carolinas, married him and found herself calling NC home once again.

It does not feel like Renee every really left MHP. We’ve kept in touch! You might recognize her, MHP photographed her wedding, Lindsey was even a bridesmaid in her wedding and she’s been second shooting with us for a little while now!

This turn in Renee’s journey brought her back to MHP and the timing could not have been better. Claire informed me of some changes coming in her life, one of which includes a new baby next March and another which included going in a different direction with her career, not photography related at all. Immediately Renee came to mind and a few staff meetings and one phone call later she said yes!

I guess you could say that this story goes to show that even when something you really want doesn’t work out, it does not mean the opportunity is gone forever. If you play your cards right and wait for the opportunity to rise again, it just might and when it does… grab it and don’t look back! So that’s what we are doing folks… welcome Renee to our team! We are running full speed ahead, in fact she and Lindsey already have weddings booked for 2014!

Renee is currently living in the Highpoint/Greensboro area with plans to relocate to Wilmington next year. Renee is available for portraits in Greensboro, Highpoint, and Wilmington. Although Renee’s base for weddings will be Wilmington, NC she can be booked worldwide. At MHP we love to travel and we are excited for this new adventure!

We are thrilled to be a part of Courtyards and Cobblestones – A Walk Through Wedding Row, a fantastic bridal event taking place in Downtown Wilmington on January 12th. Last year’s event was a sell out and brides have been talking all year about how much fun they had and what a great experience it was for planning their wedding day. You will be led on a guided tour to six of Wilmington’s finest downtown venues and experience a collection of vendors in each location that have teamed up to show you what one cohesive wedding will look and feel like in that space.

Come out and get a chance to visualize a wedding in each space and meet the wedding professionals who teamed up in that venue! Meet our MHP team, coordinators, florists, caterers, cake artists, getaway transportation, videographers, you’ll even find custom wedding papers and more. There will also be a chance to jump in our TruthBooth for a new facebook profile photo! If that wasn’t enough our sponsors, Reeds Jewlers, The Wedding Dress Shoppe and Pressed Cotton all have fabulous giveaways from jewelry to wedding dresses and a shopping spree!

If you are getting married in Wilmington (even if you already have your event venues picked) get tickets to this show! If you know someone who is getting married, help us spread the word… it’s a gold mine of inspiration and ideas even if many of your wedding decisions have already been made. We would love to see your face on January 12th! MHP will be located at The Atrium and St. Thomas Preservation Hall this year so be sure to find us and say hello!

mhp is growing again – lucky number 7!

Bits & Pieces  |  Claire  |  Lindsey  |  Millie  |  

At Millie Holloman Photography, we’re a pretty lucky bunch. We get to work with amazing couples and families during the happiest times of their lives. We get to express our creativity while earning a living. We have a happy staff that feels like family (and in fact many of us are!) And, with this new announcement, we hope you’ll feel lucky too. Now, you can choose from seven different MHP photographers. Our newest team, Claire and Lindsey, will look familiar to you. Both have been with Millie Holloman Photography in other roles for a while.

Lindsey has been with MHP since the age of 15! She started as a part-time helper, carrying Millie’s bags at photography shoots. Eight years later, with years of image editing, album designing and assistant photography under her belt, Lindsey is stepping into a photographer role. Her classes in Design, Fashion Marketing and Business will all come in handy! She’ll partner with Claire Strebeck.

Claire, who has a BA in Studio Art from Mississippi College, has dabbled in photography for years. In early 2009, Claire launched her own photography business and attended a Love Affair workshop where she met Millie and her team. When Claire’s husband, a Youth and Worship leader, was transferred to a church in the Wilmington area, Claire closed her Mississippi-based business and joined the Millie Holloman Photography team. She has spent the past year learning the MHP style as an Office Assistant and Assistant Photographer.

Together, these two sweet, sassy, spunky Southern Belles make a great team. To learn more about them, see their About Us page. They are available immediately to book 2012 and 2013 weddings, portraits, and events. Please join me in congratulating them in their new roles!
