Okayyy it’s been a while since I’ve blogged AKA ranted to you all! When something is weighing on me, blogging helps! Why not create some good out of some bad?
Last week one of my amazing brides ( no names here) was chatting with me and she mentioned she had another photographer, at a bridal show, tell her that she would reimburse her the deposit she paid ME, to book her. Excuse me, WHAT?!
Now I’m all for advertising and promoting your business, but why do we need to go to these lengths to do that?! I have busted my ass and spent A LOT (still spending a lot) this year on bettering every aspect of my business. Maybe I’m taking it too personal, but what kind of business owner does this?
We need to be supporting our fellow girl bosses, You’ve found a photographer already and it’s not me? That is AWESOME and I am so happy for you. Finding the perfect photographer to fit your personalities, needs, and budgets is sooo important when you’re planning your wedding. If anytime a bride comes to me and either decides I’m not the one, doesn’t like my style, or isn’t in the budget, I can give you a dang list of other amazing ladies that will match you perfectly! That is part of all our jobs.
It is HARD being a business owner. There is too much to think about and things to be done than to worry about other girls being shady towards us! Girls, we are all in this together! So be nice!
