I had the pleasure of meeting 12 other local photographers last Friday night. Wow! What an amazing experience! The Q&A workshop was held by two leading wedding photographers in the area, Rebekah Hoyt and Abby Springmann. It was truly amazing to see these women share their struggles as well as their hopes and dreams. Abby opened up her home to us for an opportunity to spread some love around. It gave me faith and confidence to keep pursuing this dream of mine. I learned all about legal contracts, second shooting, wedding day etiquette and so so so so much more! I filled up two pages of solid notes within two hours! The evening flew by so fast. I loved every second of the knowledge they poured into us. I appreciated their honesty more than anything. Abby’s story really resonated with me since she began her business while maintaining a full time job. It was great to hear her advice on time management and how to prioritize family time above all else.
Most of all, I had a blast! The room was electric and full of positive energy! Every photographer was eager to learn, share and form a community. It was incredibly encouraging for me! The return has already been ten fold! I have met some extremely talented and supportive photographers to have by my side for this journey. I can’t wait to follow their success and continue to share the love that was given to us. What a blessing for my life and business!
Thank you Abby and Rebekah for being such great teachers and people!
I was even able to reconnect with an old college friend who has a striving business in Charlottesville, Tyler Corvin. I am very excited to grow my photography network!
