Have you wondered what it’s like building your own start up wedding photography business? Especially in a thriving city like Seattle, Washington. The key is to build your brand.
Working in the wedding industry for three years as a wedding photographer comes with some challenges. Starting your business in a new town where you know no one can be daunting. The industry can have highs and lows and every day I strive to improve and educate myself. These past three years I’ve experienced capturing as many weddings as I possibly could, in order to provide the best LRP experience. Along with weddings, I also capture West Seattle Families, Mommies to Bee!, Newborns, and the occasional glamour headshot sessions.
2017 is the year I want you to get to know me as someone who enjoys capturing love, memories, and true joy.I get a high out of making you and your spouse happy, confident, and full of life so that you can see those feelings through the images of your gallery. I also enjoy being apart of the next chapter of your lives. I feel honor and lucky to be apart of seeing you grow with your family and the best part is when we meet for a session it’s like a fun playdate capturing an amazing moment and giving you the gift of keeping these images for forever and sharing these images with family and friends.
I strive to also collaborate with other creatives who work in the wedding industry and collaborate , trade, and become a support system for each other. Giving back and connecting with my peers is my #1 goal as an entrepreneur. For example I just launched my fabulous new logo that Francesca Michetti Keltner created & designed for me. She’s also aspiring to get into the photography industry in Pennsylvania and I see her going far. I was able to help mentor her and provide valuable advice before she invested into her startup business.
This new logo I just launched embodies part of my branding for 2017 & 2018. The goal for this logo was to improve from the old design and show my playful but also sophisticated photography skills. I want to exude an experience through my logo and hope that you see the value of a boutique style appearance since I only accept 25 weddings a year.
Every week I strive to make a business goal to build my brand. Check out next week for another article on what my goal is to build and implement another angle to brand my business.
