Back in 2005 I had no idea I would end up being a full time wedding photographer. If you would of asked me in 2012 I would of laughed at you… Even when I quit my career at the USPS in the fall of 2014 most people couldn’t believe it or didn’t believe I was ready… Well it’s 2019 and the inner fire that started this journey is stronger than ever. Mostly in thanks to the opportunity I had last year to be apart of a year long mentorship, diving deep into myself, getting the opportunity to take months and months and just learn about me and come to accept who I actually am and take all of those negatives, positives and own them…making them into my brand, something that truly represents my personality.
What I learned is that I am my brand. Ever since I started, I kept myself and my personality out of what I did was always my goal. That is why for the last 5 years you never saw an about me, my photo or anything personal in anything I did. However, what I have come to realize is that people deep down love me. Despite the business being called “Abbots Lane”, they in essence are hiring me, not my brand me. It is hard to comprehend for someone who doesn’t want it about himself.
But in reality the camera is just a tool for my personality. My personality is the tool of connection that will bring your smile to the surface, creating memories and moments.
This last year was absolutely amazing. However it was all consuming along with a full schedule of weddings, which resulted in not many social media posts at all… Okay pretty much not all which has resulted in several open dates for this year that I would love to fill!
If you know someone getting married on one of these dates this year and looking for a photographer I would be grateful if you tagged them, shared this post, the website and contact info with them! I would absolutely love a referral as well as a chance to connect with them to see if it’s a great fit!
In return of you helping me I would love to gift you a either a family mini session for one of our upcoming mini session dates or if a mini session isn’t your thing, instead you can gift your friends an additional hour of wedding day coverage if they book and mention this post and supply me with your name and email. the choice will be yours.
Just tag your friends, share this post and make sure they mention you when they book!
Again, thank you friends for all of your love and support over the years. It really means much more than you will ever know.
