I was a little nervous when I opened an email from a woman from Florida looking for someone to do bridal portraits after a quick courthouse ceremony in Gwinnett. This was the first time I was speaking to a potential client who wasn’t referred to me by a friend so this was HUGE. I had to really sell myself here, I had to be completely professional and not let my excitement or nervous energy show. I felt butterflies just reading the message…this meant my marketing was working. The countless hours I spent putting my name out there has finally paid off!
We shared a little small talk and she said that she had seen some of my work on Instagram and wanted to know what my rates were for bridal portraits.
Uh Oh…here it is. The possibility of this session and awesome portfolio opportunity is totally dependent on the next thing I say to her. I hesitated for a few minutes, scared to hit send.
When I finally had the courage to hit send, she immediately responded saying that everything sounded great and this is the result! (: Thank you Lawanda and Matthew for letting me be the one to capture such precious memories! I wish you two a lifetime of happiness and wedded bliss!
