The problem is our growth this year! Don’t get me wrong, I’m so grateful for all the referrals that keep coming in. It really is so rewarding to receive a testimonial or a phone call from a bride who is so thankful for her pictures. There aren’t many jobs out there where you get praised on a daily basis. It keeps us going strong!
We’ve experienced a 400% growth this year and I know that I’ll be employing a small staff to help with the workload very soon, because I’m working 80 hours a week right now to keep up with the wedding season load. But summer is almost over and the load lightens a little for fall, so hopefully I’ll still be in one piece!
Since May, I’ve taken a total of 34,683 pictures at weddings! Well me and my crew but guess who has to go through them and edit? Yep! You guessed it. Insanity! Shooting film was easier in many ways back in the day because you had a set number of rolls and didn’t experience ” trigger finger” nearly a much because once the film was gone, that was it.
Oh well…it could be a lot worse! I could be searching for my next wedding to shoot.
And it even gets better. My wife Andrea is pregnant and we are expecting our first child New Years! So Growth is good.
We are blessed and very grateful.
