a few words from jessica:
"it doesn't happen often, but every now and then you meet someone who you just instantly know is a game changer in your life. this is how i feel about abany bauer. i had the greatest pleasure of meeting abany back in january at blueprint retreat. we spent an entire day together just talking and i honestly felt like we had been friends our entire lives. her talent is unbelievable, but her heart is even more beautiful than the picturesque images she creates. i am beyond honored she traveled from atlanta to teach one of our zimmerman inspiration series workshops to arkansas creatives. i'm even more honored to call her my friend."

"Working in the wedding industry is incredibly rewarding, and as professionals we have the opportunity to meet some precious brides who really love what we offer to them for their special day. Unfortunately, the hard part about this industry is that only one type of vendor is ever present at a given event - never giving opportunity for other photographers to meet other photographers, other florists to connect with florists and so forth.
Through the Zimmerman Inspiration Series, Jessica has single handedly created an environment for community building, encouragement and learning all in one safe place. There is never an air of competition - but simply equality as professionals pushing ourselves towards the better.
I have such respect and admiration for Jessica’s pioneering and creative spirit as she has made such great and sacrificial efforts to present these learning opportunities to the Arkansas creative community and beyond.
She has spoken encouragement into parts of my life that I never knew was even there - whispering life and growth into those hidden places to see them flourish.
It was an honor to meet her team and work with such an amazing group of photographers who were so eager to learn.
I truly believe that these Inspirational Series events are just the tip of the iceberg - and I look forward to seeing the growth and inspiration that will birth from these moments."
