BEST OF 2018
TEXAS + DESTINATION INTIMATE WEDDING
AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
This year as a wedding photographer was wild. It brought on highs and lows, and an unexpected twist I never imagined. After almost 10 years of owning a business, I finally realized the kinds of clients and weddings that mesh best with my personality and my interests (more on that in a bit). It took me nearly ten years of doing business to realize that just because I’m a wedding photographer, doesn’t mean that all engaged couples are up for grabs, and that every wedding photographer out there is my competition. My style attracts a certain type of couple, and detracts other types of couples. And that’s a good thing!
The couples that have been attracted to my work are creative in some way. This year I’ve worked with architects (two now, actually), artists, graphic designers, teachers, psychologists, photographers, lawyers, and fellow wedding industry creative professionals. That led me to start thinking about the character traits that my clients have. They’re educated, discerning, and hard-working. Most of all, they’re KIND. They’re smart with their investments, and expect a high quality product and service. They would prefer an intimate guest list or elopement. They don’t want a frivolous wedding filled with too many details, logistics, or stressful situations. Any element that plays a part of their wedding day has so much value and meaning to them.
These things have helped me to decide how I market, and to whom I market. Since 2018 was the year of deciphering all of the things, I feel like 2019 is going to be a great year of connecting with some wonderful clients, capturing some meaningful memories, and bettering my business to the best of my ability. I can’t wait to show you all what I have in store for this year’s couples. Thank you for your love and support throughout the years! Cheers to a new year!
