Today we're chatting with the lovely Kat of Kat Braman Photography. Website: katbraman.com Specialty & Location: Weddings in Jupiter, Florida DA: Tell us a little about yourself... KB: I was born in the Czech Republic and my family moved to Colorado when I was 10. I met my husband during one of my first days at the University of Colorado and moved to his native Fort Lauderdale when he graduated. I am self taught in photography on the original digital Rebel but now shoot primarily with a medium format film camera. DA: What has been your most memorable image and why? KB: My most memorable image has to be from the elopement I shot in Queenstown, New Zealand. It was such an incredibly intimate day to document. The bride and groom dressed each other (outside in the winter!) and this photo was taken just before they said their vows to each with The Remarkables in the background. DA: If you could tell photographers that are just starting out one thing you wish you had known before starting a business, what would it be and why? KB: When your passion is your business, it's difficult to find a balance between family and work. Traveling a lot for photography jobs sounds amazing (and it is) but when you have a family, it takes a huge toll on them for you to be gone 3, 4 or 5 days at a time. Sometimes it's okay to say no. DA: Where do you find inspiration? KB: Movies and music, for the most part. I'm probably the most annoying person ever to watch a movie with because I'm paying more attention to the cinematography and the use of light to convey mood and emotion than I am to the actual movie. DA: If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? KB: New Zealand. Definitely the South Island. It's easily the most beautiful country I've ever been to. I loved everything about it. DA: What is your favorite film of all time? KB: I have a lot of favorite movies but I think if I had to pick one it would have to be Gone With the Wind. There's just something about it. I love the book too. *See more of Kat's work in our new book, The Design Aglow Posing Guide for Wedding Photography, available for pre-order on Amazon!

There are any number of ways you can market your photography business: online profiles with paid and unpaid services, or social media advertisements. You could even go old school and try a radio ad or billboard. But we’re firm believers that one of the best ways to spread your good name is by good old-fashioned word of mouth. Because it works.

Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
