THE STORY BEHIND

our ampersand

"YOU HAD THE INCREDIBLE ABILITY TO SEE THE POTENTIAL IN ME AND IN MY BUSINESS, THAT I OTHERWISE WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE"

Before I met you both, I felt like I was spinning around in a sea of uncertainty in my business. Throughout our time together, you encouraged me and spoke life into me. You leaned in, delved into my life and my heart, and saw me through God's "looking glass." Your friendship, your love, your encouragement, your vision, and all your hard work made such a powerful impact on my life and on my business, and I'm so grateful for you, Kelly and Andra!

— Adrienne Rolon, Heart's Content Events

I can't say enough good things about working with the gals from With Grace and Gold! Their whole process is extremely well-planned and executed beautifully — at every stage I felt confident in the progress being made. This is the best investment I have ever made for my business. My new website and business identity are simply stunning — everything I wanted but couldn't visualize or create on my own. And to top it all off, Kelly & Andra are just a complete pleasure to work with!

— Melissa Miller, Sweet Melissa Desserts

"THIS IS THE BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE EVER MADE FOR MY BUSINESS."

After working with With Grace and Gold, I feel like my online presence perfectly reflects my personality and the heart behind my business. I have a clear vision of what my business stands for and the clients that I want to attract. Finally, my website feels like home!

— Lainey Reed, Lainey Reed Photography

"finally, my website feels like home!"

Before working with With Grace and Gold, I saw my business as just a dream. I knew what I wanted to do, what I could do, and that I was more than capable of doing all of these things; but I wasn't confident in my presentation. After working with With Grace and Gold, I feel much more confident in my business, my presentation of my services, and the heart behind it all. Kelly and Andra are an absolute DREAM TEAM. They are so kind, professional, and (true to their name) full of grace. I will recommend With Grace and Gold to all of my creative, small business besties! 

— Emily Yost, Emily in Love

"BEFORE WORKING WITH WITH GRACE AND GOLD, I SAW MY BUSINESS AS JUST A DREAM."

After working with Andra and Kelly, I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. I can finally say I have a beautiful website that I am proud to share with everyone. I have beautiful business cards that I get excited to pass out. My brand is cohesive and lovely, and it just feels like me. After our business consulting meetings, I received some really helpful tools and resources and some great advice. I still have a long way to go to getting organized, but now have a great client management tool, an Instagram planner, and am working toward getting a blog schedule put together. I am finally EXCITED about business. It's not just about taking beautiful images, it's about creating an experience that clients can love and rave about from beginning to end.

— Carly Milbrath, Carly Milbrath Photography

"my brand just feels like me. i am finally excited about business."

Kelly and Andra, you didn't just give me a new, shiny brand; you gave me an experience, newfound confidence, and genuine friendship. You know how to serve your clients, give them the love and encouragement they need, and ultimately change them for the better! I'm so thankful for my experience with you, because my business has significantly grown since the launch of my rebrand, and you've made my life so much better just by being in it!

— Tarah Schoof, Tara Elise Photography

"YOU TWO QUICKLY MADE YOUR WAY INTO MY HEART, AND CONTINUE TO HELP ME GROW EVERY SINGLE DAY."

Before working with you, my brand was all over the place, inconsistent, and lacked cohesion. Now, my brand has a crystal clear aesthetic, looks much more refined, and shows our audience who we are without us having to scream it from the rooftops. I'm forever thankful for you two.

— Lauren Kelp, Lauren Kelp

"BEFORE WORKING WITH YOU, MY BRAND WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE, INCONSISTENT, AND LACKED COHESION."

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You girls are the real deal. You 'get' the heart behind my business and have a gift for making it come to life. So very thankful for you two.

— Ann Hoang, Anny Photography

"YOU GIRLS ARE THE REAL DEAL."

You two have such a gift - not only for design and branding - but for generously spreading kindness. I can't thank you enough for the business consulting work we got to do together, and for being so wonderful! I will always be a huge fan and blog reader, and I look forward to our next opportunity to work together!
