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.
During the 12 years of running my own business, I had 5 crucial goals I wanted to attain. Each one grew bigger and more challenging, causing more weight on my shoulders. I knew the hard work, patience and exhaustion would pay off in some ways. I would complete one goal, take a breathe and move right into the next one.
Chicago wedding photographer, Kevin Weinstein Photography, was born 10 years ago today.
May 31, 2001: I worked my 9th day in a row, and my usual eleven hour day at the newspaper. I was 29, and exactly 2 weeks away from 30. Sure, I was anxious and nervous about the milestone birthday. Life felt empty. My work schedule dominated my waking hours and my social life was an after-thought.
Several years ago, I stumbled across Anton Lorimer's work and immediately knew one day, he would work for me. I merely needed the money, and mostly, the reason to invest in his brilliance.
