People keep asking us why and how we photographed a wedding in Baltimore in December. First, you need to know a little bit about Anne’s story. We are so, so proud of her.
Last year, Anne took a leap of faith. She’d never been on an airplane before, but felt like she was being tugged to come to our workshop, so she took a risk, got on a plane, and came to Arizona. She was trapped in a day job that was severely affecting her quality of life. Anne was raising a sweet son on her own, and her day job was keeping her from him. Her daily commute was over 100 miles per day, which meant that not only were the hours working completely draining, she was also wasting hours in the car every day instead of spending that precious time with her son. It’s why she came to the workshop. She had a dream of taking her wedding photography business full time and spending more time with her son. With less than 10 weddings on her schedule, she was desperate for bookings, not making a profit and unsure about the future.
But all that changed.
After the workshop, she photographed 34 weddings and quadrupled her prices! Quadrupled! It changed everything for her. Instead of commuting over 100 miles per day, five days per week to her day job, she works from home now! She attends all of her son’s school functions and has more time than ever with Chris, the amazing man who just became her husband. Because of that, we’ve never felt warmer in such a cold place. It was a full circle moment for us of why we do what we do, who we do it for, and why it matters.
Anne and Chris, we love you and we’re so very proud of you! Coming to Baltimore was such a special memory for us in so many ways — and we’ll never forget it. We can’t wait to watch your marriage grow and your business, too!
