Empowering Other Wedding Vendors and Small Business Owners

May 22, 2021

Empowering other wedding vendors….

 I’ve come to enjoy empowering other wedding vendors and small business owners! I  especially love giving voice to those who have a true passion and desire to grow and be seen! 

And for any small business, the only way to be seen is with photos that speak!

Photos that speak to the spirit and heart of the business – empowering other wedding vendors to show up!

I get it. It’s easy for photographers and business owners to just hide behind the business.  Without a doubt though, people want to see our face. 

People want to see who they are working with. People want to see who will be serving them. And this is why branding photography is so important.  

I love encouraging other to show up in front of their camera. Furthermore, I love giving other small businesses a way to be seen by others – putting a face to the service and a personality to the business.

Photos speak volumes

There is so much truth to the phrase that “photos speak volumes”! It’s a window into the soul. But, it requires the right photographer to hone in on the soul of a person. 

In order to see the soul of a person, you’ll have to push and see beyond the facade. Undoubtedly, a branding photographer needs the superpower of intuition and being able to connect. And for me, the challenge of discovering a person – and who they are – is where all the fun is. 

I love being a San Diego wedding photographer and branding photographer…

There is so much joy in finding a way to help other vendors and small business put their best foot forward. My ultimate desire, as a photographer in general, is to be able to show the best side of everyone. 

More so, I want people to embrace the fact that – when done right, you can be beautiful in front of the camera!! The “10 lbs in front of the camera” doesn’t have to be the truth and you can look beautiful, confident and powerful!

    Beautiful photos–you’re so right that having photos that tell your story as a brand/creator is a big piece in the puzzle of owning your own small business!
