My Monthly Tid Bit Blogs are typically reserved for helpful tips and hints for brides. This month, I decided to switch gears! (Keep reading for a SUPER fun announcement and opportunity for fellow photographers!)
Over the past year, I’ve had several photographers (both new and experienced) reach out to me with questions about my workflow process, editing, client experience, location scouting, and many other topics. I unfortunately haven’t had the time I would like to be able to devote to each of their questions – mostly because I haven’t had a specific process for doing that type of thing within my work days or workflow. BUT – guess what! That’s all about to change.
I DOVE HEAD FIRST INTO MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS, FULL TIME, WITHOUT KNOWING A DROP OF WHAT IT MEANT TO PHOTOGRAPH A WEDDING OR RUN A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS.
I’VE SPENT THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS FINDING MY VOICE IN THIS INDUSTRY BY DEFINING MY BRAND, CRAFTING A SPECIFIC CLIENT EXPERIENCE, CREATING AN EDITING STYLE, GAINING BOTH WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE AND SO MUCH MORE.
HERE’S WHAT all of that BOILS DOWN TO: I’M Allison – A TRAVELING WEDDING AND ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA! I’M OBSESSED WITH CHIPS AND SALSA, AM A DOG MOMMA, AN HIKING ENTHUSIAST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, A WIFE TO MY HUSBAND MATT!
I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT SERVING COUPLES WHO WANT THEIR IMAGES TO BE A REAL, RAW + AUTHENTIC REFLECTION OF THEM AND WHO THEY ARE WHEN THEY’RE TOGETHER. MY COUPLES LOVE TO ADVENTURE TOGETHER AND EXPERIENCE NEW THINGS. THEY HOLD ON TO EACH OTHER TIGHTLY AND WHISPER SECRETS. THE HIKE TOGETHER, MAKE TRAVELING A PRIORITY AND HAVE FUTURE BUCKET LIST GOALS. THEY’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT DREAMING OF THEIR FUTURE LIFE TOGETHER – NOT JUST THEIR WEDDING DAY.
BUT MOST OF ALL? THEY AREN’T AFRAID TO BE AUTHENTICALLY THEM.
I hate to break it to you:
THE WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY WORLD WILL ALWAYS BE HIGHLY SATURATED WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS. YOU CAN EITHER LET THAT THOUGHT INTIMIDATE YOU, OR YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE PROACTIVE ABOUT PUSHING YOUR BUSINESS AND CLIENT EXPERIENCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL – NO MATTER HOW LONG OR SHORT YOU’VE BEEN IN THE GAME.
Do you feel like you haven’t found your voice in this industry? That your brand isn’t standing out, that you’re not attracting your ideal client and that you don’t know what else to do?
IT’S TIME TO STAND OUT AMONGST THE SEA OF PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THIS WORLD. WE’RE GOING TO FIND YOUR VOICE, DEFINE YOUR BRAND, BUILD YOUR KNOWLEDGE, CRAFT YOUR SPECIFIC CLIENT EXPERIENCE AND TAKE YOUR IMAGES TO THE NEXT LEVEL. ARE YOU IN?
On August 5th, I’m going to begin offering MENTORING to photographers just like you! There will be several different mentoring routes you can choose – both in person and online. We can do a Q+A Style mentor session, a live shoot or we can go through my entire client workflow from start to finish to begin building the bones to YOUR specific workflow! I’m SO excited to begin offering these sessions and cannot wait to help people just like you. Stay tuned for when my Mentoring webpage goes LIVE on August 5th!
(Be sure to mention this blog post for $50 off of your first mentoring session with me!)
