So it has been quite simply an amazing year so far, the wedding enquiries have kept coming, the new camera arrived, the skills have continued to develop, i’ve been working on a number of weddings with an assistant, next year is looking promising already, i’ve even started to train up a few people who are wanting to enhance their skills too… but there is one thing missing. Quite simply a bit of down time, a chance to slow down and look back on what i’ve done, and also to do things for me. Sure I enjoy the weddings, hell I LOVE the weddings, they’re fun, emotional, and sharing the biggest day of a couples life is an honour and there is nothing like sharing the images with them afterwards. There is nothing like a bit of time to yourself though, a bit of time to switch off and not be thinking about things, or editing photos, or checking emails.
Next week I fly out to Ibiza for a week in the sun with my wonderful girlfriend and I know I will be coming home fully recharged and ready to go. September is going to be a busy month and things only slow down slightly in the run up to new years eve, I won’t know what to do with myself for the few weeks after that until the weddings start again!
This month I also look into my pricing structure, and will be putting out a new price list along side the new website. I am hoping that I will be doing fewer weddings, but making each one a bit more profitable. The new prices are there for two reasons, firstly to move the business in a positive direction, and secondly to give me more time between each wedding to focus on the couples that I deal with.
For the next few days its all about packing the suitcase and VIVA ESPANA!!
