PartnerCon Speaker Spotlight

Hi, I’m Liana.  While many refer to me simply as “liana banana”, I was married in April of this year, so I’ve officially changed my last name from Lehman to Hall!  I’m based out of the Atlanta GA area which is great because my focus is destination weddings and it’s easy to get around from here.  While destination weddings is our specialty, we also photograph plenty of Atlanta weddings and lifestyle portraits.  When I’m not shooting, I’m teaching Photo Business Boot Camps and traveling.  Right now I’m one of the only working pro wedding photographers certified to teach the not-fun business stuff to other entrepreneurs.  It’s a lot of work, because I don’t have any “down-time” but so rewarding to be able to do both!
