Wedding Season Preparation

I’m a checker, a double-checker, and a triple-checker. I’m also a list maker, but we’ll get into that another day ;)

 

Wedding season begins at different times for different photographers, but I’m very blessed to be able to dive into the season in less than 2 weeks!! How did spring sneak up so fast?! I love it! Now I’m just waiting for some buds on the trees and spring flowers.

 

Along with some nice weather comes prepping for weddings, engagements, and my fun photography adventures, and this is what I like to do to start off on the right note:

 

Inspiration. I love gathering inspiration in a number of ways, but mostly this happens by getting to know my couples! I also keep my eye out for anything interesting during my daily life and routine, whether it be a J.Crew catalog, an interesting pattern in the window at Anthro, or the neighbor kids playing outside across the street. That’s the beauty of inspiration – it’s everywhere!
Gear. Winter and early spring is the perfect time to evaluate, take stock of, and clean gear as I ease back into spring weddings and engagements!
Prioritize. This is around the time of year where I can start to judge what my summer wedding schedule will look like, so I need to make sure to get my priorities straight and make sure to plan some time for what’s important to me {and also some down time} into my schedule to keep myself fresh! No one likes to be running on fumes by the end of summer, and my family and friends are way too important to me to neglect during the busy season. I’d encourage any business owner to do the same because family time and {insert your personal priority list here} is priceless and irreplaceable.
Order. Not only am I making sure to order supplies, packaging and other office necessities, but I’m trying to be better about getting my accounting portion of my business in order instead of procrastinating. Which I seem to be the queen of in this department ;)
Breathe. It’s like the calm before the storm, so now is the perfect time to squeeze in a date night or two with my fiance, see a live band {last night Jon and I saw this band and this band perform and LOVED it}, and get in on some spin and yoga classes at the gym!

 

Happy Wednesday everyone! This photo makes me excited for spring and new leaves on the trees :)
