Vitaliy and I are absolutely overwhelmed by all of your love and support after our recent announcement. Thank you all so much!
Prior to finding out our big news, Vitaliy and I had actually already started making some changes to our business. One of which was postponing blogging images until after we had delivered them to clients first and then to the appropriate vendors. It has been one of the best decisions we’ve made to date.
When we first started our business, we had no clue what to do. So, we did what most photographers do and look around at those who have gone before and try to incorporate things that have worked for them. We still learn a great deal from others, both in the industry and outside the industry, but after doing this now for 6 years you start to learn that things that work for one person don’t necessarily work for others.
Blogging is a great marketing tool and it has worked wonders for our business, but our number one goal in our business is to give our clients the best possible experience. And we have found that if we hold off on blogging, we can deliver our clients’ images even faster. And we know that’s precisely what they want.
The other reason we have found this works best for us is that blogging can take up so much of our time. This has also helped keep the blog in it’s rightful place, as a blessing to our business and not a burden. I can blog when I choose to rather then feeling like I “have” to. And boy am I thankful for that! Because shortly after making this change, I found out I was pregnant and there were definitely days, even weeks, I was not able to function like normal.
I’m so thankful that we’ve reached a point in our business that we’re confident in making moves that work for us and our clients, even if it’s not industry norm. We’re now delivering our images to clients faster than we ever have in the past! And that’s what matters most.
And now that I’ve got my energy back, I look forward to sharing more of what we’ve been up to this wedding season. Here’s a little sneak peek from a beauty back in April.
