I Almost Quit Wedding Photography

Five years ago I was at the beginning of my chronic illness journey, and I kept unexpectedly having to take time off.

Because I was also over-booking my calendar, it created a domino effect.

All of a sudden every gallery I sent out was late. I would ignore my inbox for days – sometimes even weeks – because I didn’t want to apologize to yet another client for dropping the ball. And I wasn’t taking care of myself in the slightest because I was living at my computer for 16+ hours a day, skipping meals, and only taking time off to rest when my body forced me to.

Has that ever happened to you, First name / friend?

Maybe you’ve felt like you’re just not cut out to be a wedding photographer.

Maybe you’ve tried implementing systems before and it ended up creating more work for you, instead of taking some off your plate.

After trying out so many different systems in my own business, I almost gave up for those same reasons.

Until one day, it finally clicked 💡 

These systems weren’t working for me because I was just doing what everyone else was doing. As someone with a chronic illness, I have unique needs that I need to respect and set boundaries around in order for me, my business, and my systems to work their best.

So, I tuned out all the noise. I used the basic foundations to building systems, and I found ways to simplify and streamline every aspect of my business behind-the-scenes…

… And that’s when everything changed.

I still have to unexpectedly take time off, but I stopped missing deadlines, and I started getting rave reviews from clients again. I was delivering galleries filled with photos that I couldn’t be more proud of.

But what was most surprising to me was that I was able to bring in more money while working significantly less.

In Unfiltered + Simplified, I’m going to show you exactly how I made it happen, and give you all the tools you need to implement your own streamlined systems in your wedding photography business, too!
