I know 2013 feels far away.
But it’s really not.
Goodness, I can remember how yesterday felt just like 2009. (By that I mean yesterday practically was 2009).
I like to communicate with all of you about things once in a while, since it’s because of all of you – *waves forth hand* – I have been able to have such wonderful opportunities with my photos. So…
I will be limiting my weddings to only ten in 2013. I had the goal to pull back for this year, and I have been able to do so, however I have exceeded (though very gratefully!) my goal for what I’d like to be shooting this year. Next year I am only going to accept ten weddings, and then I will be shutting off additional bookings. Despite how difficult that may be.
There are 3 main reasons to committing to only 10 weddings in 2013:
—–I want each one to be special. Not just for my clients, but for me. No matter what folks in the wedding business tell you, after a while it is hard for each one to become just another one. I don’t want that for my spirit or for my work or for my clients. Thus, I am limiting myself.
—–I work another full time job. I have been fortunate enough to have a great job working for a wonderful non-profit organization in Dorchester. My commitments to my work there continue to grow, and I want to set boundaries for myself to really invest in the work I have before me.
—–I want to invest my photography in other areas. I love shooting weddings. But I hope to do other work. Personal projects. Teaching (hopefully!). In order to do this I must reserve some creative energy and time to do so.
—-What this means for you—-
Well, possibly nothing… But, if you are getting married next year, or thinking of getting married, and want me to photograph, talk to me about it now! I’m already beginning to book weddings for next year. So don’t miss out! And don’t let your friends miss out!
I am excited about what this new stage could mean for me.
Thank you to so many of you for walking along with me on this journey (and for hiring me and supporting me).
