We are about to celebrate ten (yes, ten!) years of business in the MidAtlantic and Southeast. What started as a casual request for some minor help on a no-budget indie project has grown into — well, *all of this.* 

The has changed and shifted over the years, and we are so proud of every single human we’ve had the pleasure to work with — which brings us to a bittersweet farewell to the astonishingly talented Meghan Apostoles, who has been with us for five incredible years. We wish her the greatest success, and are sure to see her name in the Los Angeles lights soon.

Happy fall, here’s to each of you,

Erica + team
