My excitement levels are soaring the nearer it gets to the weekend. I know its not uncommon to live for the weekends…usually for me its means a break from all the back-office tasks of admin, social media management and post-production editing which consume most of my week and a chance to do what I’m actually supposed to do…take photographs of people!
This weekend, however, I’m doing the next best thing…meeting lots of new people who might consider enlisting me to take pretty pictures of them at their wedding! Yes, I’m exhibiting again, this time at Brides the Show, which promises to be one of the very best, packed full of exquisite suppliers tantalising the most discerning brides with the very best of what the industry has to offer…couture designer wedding dresses by David Fielden and Suzanne Neville, destination weddings and honeymoons by LuxTripper, decadent floral displays from The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers and all the inspiration and creative experience from wedding planners like Zouche and Lamare and Potcakes Weddings. Its great to be in the company of professionals who share the same passion for excellence in their respective fields.
I know its a cliche but I do genuinely love meeting new people and for me exhibitions are such a great forum not only to network with other industry professionals, but to meet prospective clients. It’s like speed dating…in an instant you know whether you have a (photographic) future together, my clients can quickly see just what they’d be getting, not just in terms of the beautiful Queensberry albums and frames, but the all-important personality behind the lens…and even better, you don’t need to endure the awkward, sensation-numbing 15 minutes of small talk if its not going well!
I shall be giving one lucky ‘Brides the Show’ visitor a chance to win her wedding photography for FREE…that’s a prize worth £1,500! Details will be given out at the show, but if you’ve arrived here after the event and are looking for where to enter its here…http://bit.ly/1iFIH0X…and remember you need your Brides Exclusive code from the mini-card you picked up to submit your entry.
Good luck for those who decide to enter, and stay tuned to my Facebook business page for details of the winner which will be announced on Saturday 12th April. What a great start to the weekend that would be for one lucky couple!
