Good evening from EPHQ everyone! I’m one Newport Beach wedding photographer who’s totally blown away with this MEGA news I received in an email from AMEX’s Small Business Saturday .
As you’ve seen from all the great things going on on Twitter & Facebook – 2012 is bursting at the seams with Portraits, Engagement Shoots, Weddings, Red Carpet Events, two shoots for celebrity designer; Kate Mesta featuring Boo Boo Stewart AND Brittany Curran, the TV program; “Picture Me – Picture You“ filmed internationally entirely on a mobile phone AND voted in the TOP THREE as OC’s BEST Wedding Photographer and just now returning from Costa Rica for Denise & Miguel’s Wedding Experience – it’s been a really out of control great 2012!
But with all the incredible events & photo shoots going on, the facts remain that my successes would NOT be possible without the help & support of you doing business with Small Businesses like Esquire Photography.
Check out these awesome stats!
On November 24th, people all across the country came out to show their support for small businesses and the communities they help to keep thriving. Continue showing support for small businesses by shopping small all year.
This year we saw:
- U.S. consumers who were aware of Small Business Saturday spent a total of $5.5 billion with independent merchants on Small Business Saturday*
- Elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. championed Small Business Saturday
- Over 3.2 million Facebook users have “liked” the Small Business Saturday page on Facebook and more than 213,000 Tweets were sent in support of Small Business Saturday in November
I’m absolutely blown away by those numbers & it truly means the world to me being able to make a positive difference in this world.
Now that you have an idea of how much of a difference YOU MAKE as well and if you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Newport Beach Photographer (Previously a Huntington Beach Photographer) who loves music & fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime.
I hope you’re having a great start to your holidays & stay tuned for more amazing events that I’m sharing. From San Diego to Newport Beach, all the way out to London, Costa Rica, England, Paris, France, Germany and Switzerland – I’ll have some fantastic Weddings, portrait shoots and soon – “Picture Me – Picture You” that I’ve had the honour of photographing & filming.
