coffee shop STOCK PHOTOS

If there is a business subculture that has become mainstream, it would be the throngs of people who work from coffee shops. And, not just for a quick coffee meeting or afternoon pick me up, we’re talking about the get-there-early-to-scope-out-a-seat-and-eat-two-meals-a-day there kind of people. You know - people like us!

Running a creative business and living that #smallbizlife has almost become synonymous with working at a coffee shop. Because, from escaping the pile of laundry you’ve been putting off to needing a space to meet a potential client for a consultation, there are lots of reasons why wedding and creative professionals don’t (or can’t) invest in office space. So, we wanted to celebrate and capture the beloved self-employed lifestyle with a collection of coffee shop stock photos that felt like your everyday!

A special thank you to our friends at Holsem Coffee in San Diego, for inviting us to shoot this collection in their gorgeous space!
