Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! While this wedding photographer was in Las Vegas last week for WPPI, I received a call from the PPA (Professional Photographers Of America) to see if I would be interested in contributing to an Article they were working on. Even though I was out of town in Las Vegas and they gave me less than 24 hours to round up my thoughts – I immediately said yes. What an honour to share my experiences with other wedding photographers around the world!
The basis of their Article was to share with other wedding and professional photographers why it’s important to get your studio out there with trade shows and expos. Being a lifetime professional member of the PPA and having done both trade shows and expos as a professional wedding photographer with some of the events being successful and some not so successful, I wanted to help others with what to make their events a success and pitfalls to avoid.
What’s also really awesome is that a part of the Article that the PPA included was my first experiences with Anna Marie & Lee after an event with Bridal Showplace on the Queen Mary in Long Beach. You might remember Anna Marie & Lee from their Los Olivos Wedding at the Firestone Vineyard that I had the honour of being a part of back in October 2009 and was featured in Professional Photographer Magazine from the PPA.. Or! More recently – their fun Maternity Photo Shoot in Anaheim Hills before they had their baby last week when I was in Las Vegas.
But before you check out the Article from the PPA about why professional photographers should get their photography business out in trade shows and expos, and you’re thinking to yourself… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer in Orange County, California that shoots weddings all over from OC to LA to Ventura and up at the Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos. Feel free to contact me anytime.
PS, If you missed it last week when I was out of town, be sure to check out Heather Birdsell from Paper Monkey on the latest episode of “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day” – where she’s sharing some terrific advice on how to save some time, some money & your sanity planning your wedding and event. AND! Check out the outtakes too – they’re awesome!
