This is a story of how I booked my first wedding in the beautiful Prince Edward County.
After moving to the Belleville area in February, I was nervous about starting from ground zero to build a client list. I wasn’t sure I would book a wedding in Prince Edward County for at least a year or more or until people got to know me. Luckily the stars aligned and I have connected with some really great local photographers who believe in community and trust me enough to share referrals when they are overbooked.
I’ll never forget the day I got Leanna’s email inquiry in my inbox! It was April, it was raining and I was sitting in the Walmart parking lot when I opened my email and read “We really like your work and I think you would be a great fit for us.” She even included a little winky-face. I don’t know why I thought it was a good time to call her then and there, maybe it was the excitement in her words or maybe it was the fact that her venue was Fields on West Lake. (If you know me, then you know why I love this venue – hello barn wedding perfection!)
Anyway, I called Leanna at that moment, said I was available, we clicked and the rest is history!
Both Leanna and Dan have that small town warmth to them, so it doesn’t surprise me that their fall wedding was all about family and having a good time. I could go on and on about these two, but really the photos do a better job at telling their story than my writing.
