Well, we just have a couple of minutes to go, but I wanted to take a moment just to learn about one of our studio audience members a little bit more. A cz they represent all of you out. They're so brandy. What do you come on up, bring the mike and just I wanted to hear from you about your experience yesterday. And what were some of the biggest takeaways that you had? Um, a cz you guys probably know I cried. And that was because of the connection part that doug was talking about. My business is so based on connection, and when he was talking about a family member, that was you know, like passed away or something and that's exactly why I do what I dio and him reminding me just choked me up so that was probably the biggest thing and then also the lighting that was pretty big that's fantastic. I know I think it's it's incredible when we're able to stop and think about what it is why we do this and I loved the inspiration of how we started yesterday and today it's only going to get better what is one of the biggest challenges for you and your business? Probably the lighting situations yeah, figuring out the biggest thing the two different light sources when he brought in the little torch thing I was like, oh my gosh that's genius I don't know why I didn't think of that and that was just like you nice, nice yeah the whole using the different light colors and sources and balancing those together and I lo tell doug gets it right in camera for sure so tomorrow we're going to see even more of his post processing, which is really exciting as well, but I love how he focuses just on getting it right and of course the lighting is such a big part of that, but also the lighting in weddings can be so challenging, so I'm glad that that was a really big point for you it was awesome well, thank you, brandy. And thank you for all the questions that you ask. Because I love it here, right? And then there will be more today. So thank you so much.
