When I listed goals for 2015, at the top of the list was BOOK A DESTINATION WEDDING. As an avid traveler, I have always, always wanted to photograph a destination wedding! I vowed that this would be the year I made it happen, I just wasn’t sure how. Last week I had a conversation about this with one of my best friends, and a few days later I came across this quote:
“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”~ Nora Roberts
I have always been someone who’s goal oriented and goes after what she wants. When I started this business, I didn’t have a portfolio, but I told anyone and everyone that I wanted to start a photography business; that I wanted to be a full time photographer. I asked people if I could do a shoot for them – and I had no problem doing it! Why then, have I been so nervous to say that I want to shoot a destination wedding and ask for the opportunity to do so? It makes NO SENSE! Things change today, friends!
In order to build my destination wedding portfolio, I am introducing an AMAZING giveaway! The FIRST COUPLE to book a destination wedding with me will receive FREE COVERAGE (valued at nearly $4,000!!!) – all you pay for is my travel! In most cases, the cost of travel alone is less than the cost of a resort or local photographer! See below for full details.
I am so excited about this giveaway and to see where this step forward in my business takes me. I hope to share a Travel Tuesday post featuring my first destination wedding in the future!
* Wedding must take place in a tropical and/or international location. You must book in 2015, but the wedding doesn’t need to take place in 2015.
