__________________________________

I'm a busy freelance wedding and headshot photographer based in Los Angeles, California.  Recently, I've had an incredible time traveling to places like Malibu, Lake Tahoe, Santa Ynez, Brooklyn, Austin, Washington D.C., Wisconsin and even Hawaii and Panama for various shoots.  Lately, my short-notice wedding bookings have became increasingly frequent from references and word of mouth.  I can't complain.  I've shot more weddings in the last 6 months than my whole photography career combined.  Because it's been utter madness,  I have recently discovered WHY wedding photographers charge so much:  The workload is ASTONISHING; especially if you include video services, like I do.  I have always hailed headshots as my specialty, with many of my (now famous) clients returning regularly for a shoot here and there. . . and I love shooting headshots and editorials will never stop- but I have learned one crucial lesson: As an artist, I must take care to not over-work myself and book a wedding because someone happens to need a photographer on short notice.  If I do too many (too close together) it can completely ruin my "groove" and worst of all compromise my post-production workflow.  I now require at least a six-month window to Book a wedding with me, so I can properly handle the post-production (which is many more hours than our clients realize).

I don't like the thought, or even worse, the feeling that someone's special day may be potentially compromised due to my workload.  I notice I'm having to constantly re-evaluate my business model and pay closer attention to timely production and work flow.  As an artist, in order to stay true to my Wedding photography clients ~ I vow to take the following oath:

I not only consider myself a photographer, I consider myself an artist.  In order to give the most important day of your life, the quality, time, work and attention to detail you deserve, I have solemnly vow to NEVER book more than 20 weddings per year.   Although demand is high for my work, and I could potentially book more, I feel it is an absolute necessity to give you, my clients,  my complete personal attention to detail.  You should be able to contact me whenever you need me, give me personal input on their albums, wedding day planning, prints and slideshows, and freely discuss any concerns or ideas you may have for your special day.  Each wedding has it’s own specific style and vision that the bride and groom have in mind, and my goal is to bring that vision into reality; to assist in the couple in creating an unforgettable experience with many magical moments, that will last a lifetime in their hearts.  Of course, this beautiful day should instantly which reflects in your photos, and I will do my utmost to make that happen.
 
Whew!! I feel much better now.  Okay, I'll blog with ya later, I've got to get back to a bunch of editing and galleries to load up. Ah, well: you live and you learn! Oh! . . . and Happy New Year Everyone!
