Establishing a successful wedding photography business, on the outset, can seem either like a dream job, or an incredibly daunting task, or somewhere in between. And while you have to have skill and talent and the ability to produce consistent images for hours and hours of shooting time, almost equally important is your ability to understand your business, your finances (costs, profits), and your value-add.
Understanding the true cost considerations of your business allows you to determine how to price to cover your costs and your time, then to price for your brand - two very different, but equally important, concepts. Design Aglow has created another exceptional educational tool that will cover the groundwork of basic photography business finance and budgets, provide you with Best Practices thinking to set up budgets for cost recovery, calculating your time and paycheck and pricing to support your brand strategy. Stay tuned for the launch tomorrow!
Hi! My name is Candis Press and I'm a videographer located in Southern California. I've been a videographer for over 7 years and specialize in wedding film and social media marketing.
To be honest, I would have never thought I could be a business owner. I didn't do great in school, and really only applied myself to my art classes. I started out in many careers, and somewhere along the way, videography found me and it is definitely my passion. Also, I'm married to a super rad guy and have a 4 year old little girl and both of them are the best support and inspiration a gal could have.
