Wow, what a great summer
At the start of spring, Matt and I met what felt like a million people at the spring wedding fairs. At the end of the day, we never really knew if we'd ever see them again.
As spring began to turn to summer we replaced our advertising heads with our wedding photography heads (They look much the same but with less beard). With our cameras at the ready we were poised for this year's work when our phones began to 'ping!'
Ping, ping and ping again. The enquiries were coming thick and fast. It was a fantastic way to start the season. We set up our evening office in a cosy coffee house and started to meet everyone we'd chatted with in the spring.
It's exciting meeting clients like this. Matt and I don't like the hard sell, at wedding fairs we just be ourselves and have a chat to anyone that passes by. Sometimes we talk about wedding photography, often it's about how good the free cakes and drinks are at the fair. Arranging a meeting over a coffee with a couple is confirmation that Matt and I are doing the right thing; running a business and having fun.
So now we at the back of summer. We're still meeting new couples, next year's diary is almost full and every wedding that we photograph this year is another circle completed. It's a good feeling. The real bonus is just how sunny this summer has been here in Edinburgh. We even had to upgrade our office to a hotel with al fresco dining so that we could really make the most of the weather.
There isn't a day that goes by where we both don't smile at the fact that we work in the best job ever!
