On October 14, 2013 Ed Libby Events and Victoria Dubin Events asked me to come to NYC to meet with their client about her 50th birthday party. On October 28th, Ed Libby rang me to discuss the client’s decision. I remember that familiar feeling, that anxiety, the immediate plea in my head for only happy feelings when I saw Ed’s name pop up on my caller ID.
I have mulled this blog post over in my head so many times that I can’t believe it is time to actually sit down and write. Yes! After 14 years in Chicago and more than 12 running a wedding photography studio, I am expanding my business and opening a brand new studio space.
Ten years ago this past June, I started my own business as a self-employed photographer. I had no clue where I wanted to focus my skills at the time, but I was up for anything to pay the mounting bills. Ten years ago today, Patrick & Libby married and I was their photographer. This, was my first wedding.
Last week's grand opening celebration with wedding industry peeps marked two significant milestones in my career.
In early 2009, I felt itchy and needed a change to my business identity and web site. Knowing I am a better photographer than graphic/web designer, I decided to hire a talented team of people to do the work for me. Cococello, Code 72 and Inkwell Marketing started from the ground up and built me an entirely fresh, new identity and voice for my business.
