Just like any other business, Photography has “seasons”. The year is half over and we have already gone through dance season, and the first half of children, sports, school and senior season. But there are two seasons that are year round; Newborn babies and weddings. This week has definitely been a week of “working” the wedding season. Also, just like in every other business, the best clients come from referrals. And one of the perks of being in the wedding business is getting to go to some fabulous parties while meeting people that you can refer and can refer you.
And I’m the girl who doesn’t EVER get out of the house (unless I’m working). So when my florist friend Kevin May, of May Flowers and gifts, (shameless plug) asked me to go with her to the AWP and ISES Happy Hour on Monday, I was excited! It was a date. We really had a blast! I saw some old friends like photographer Allen Fagan and Mary Beth from Bride and Groom magazine. And I had the pleasure of meeting some new friends like Gail Rocquemore from A.D Parties & Events, Colin Alphonso from the new Windsor at Hebron Park, Jeff Christenson from Jay Fox Productions and Krystal Powell from Weddings by The Kreative Consultant. There were SO many more. I even had a glass of wine. (Kevin was driving).
And then… Kevin invited me to Culinary Art Catering’s grand opening of their Nuvo Room last night. The place was amazing. It is a very unique, modern, contemporary room in North Dallas. It was very different from any place I have seen before. And the food was SO beautiful. YES… it was BEAUTIFUL! The chef is an artist. And again, I met some wonderful people. And I also saw some of the same people that I met on Monday. What a fun week! Now, I’m back at the studio trying to get caught up on some actual work for a few short minutes. It’s time for “meet the teacher” at Homestead Elementary and my daughter is ready to go. But, my wedding “perks” aren’t over. Wait until you hear what I have planned for next week.
