EPISODE #91: SOME OF THE LOWEST POINTS OF MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS
July 15 this year marks exactly ten years since I shot my first wedding, so I thought I’d record an episode to celebrate! But rather than focus on my successes and what I’ve done well to get to where I am today, I thought I’d share some of the lowest points of my wedding photography career. I truly believe we can learn a lot from our mistakes, failures and most challenging moments in life, and sharing them can go a long way to helping others.
We’ll chat about how I dealt with having my camera equipment stolen and anxiety about not booking enough weddings or being able to find people to work with. There were times I felt like my wedding photography brand wasn’t attracting the right clientele and doubted whether future clients would get in contact if I raised my fees. I’ll also speak about perhaps what was the lowest point of my career when I had what I can only describe as an identity crisis and considered throwing wedding photography in all together.
I’m honored to be in the profession I am today and here to share my experiences with you, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing. In this episode I hope to reach out to other wedding photographers who are experiencing low points in their careers and help them overcome the challenges being faced.
