2018 In Review | Denver Wedding Photographer

This is the season where everyone likes to look back on the past twelve months to see where they’ve taken them. Somehow, it’s always jarring to me to think back twelve months and compare last year’s season to this year’s. But that’s especially true right now. This has been a pivotal year for me and DBK Photography, for a number of reasons.

I honed in on my style. As visual artists, photographers tend to refer to their “style” a lot, and in a myriad of different ways. It’s something beginners in the industry desperately seek. How can you stand out? What is a visual theme that connects every image you create? For me, this means a few things:

  • I have created my own preset that I think is uniquely mine, and I now edit all of my photos from this one base preset.
  • I have a handful of favorite poses to give my couples, and while they may be somewhat repetitive, I love them because every couple and every location makes them different, and I can be confident in the experience I am providing.

I made an investment in my business education. While I’ve invested in an education in photography as an art over the past few years, 2018 was the first year I finally took the leap and invested in a program focused on running a wedding business. As a creative, it is so difficult for me to really treat my photography as a business. I am not a naturally business-minded person. But this is my livelihood, and I’m proud of myself for taking the initiative to get professional help this past year to take my business to the next level.

I’ve been shooting more than ever. This year I shot X weddings, X portrait sessions, and a handful of events. I had approximately X people in front of my camera, and that’s not even counting wedding party or family at weddings.

We moved from Washington to Colorado. Moving a business is pretty intimidating, but this move was the right thing for us, and I’m excited to see where it takes my business. Seattle wedding photographer –> Denver wedding photographer, and I have so many ideas for this year!

I love each and every single couple (and family) who has entrusted me with capturing their favorite memories this past year. I am really so lucky to be able to do something so special every day, and I’m thankful for every single person who has made this into my real career. THANK YOU.

Happy new year, everyone!
