Last year I met another amazing photographer in the central coast, Samantha. I got to second shoot for her at a wedding and we started talking how we both needed some new photos for our website. We came up with the great idea that we could do a photo shoot of each other. Well from that point we talked and tried to set a date but as wedding season approached, we both were so busy and could never find a date that worked good for us. Then magically a day finally came across.
Samantha has a lot of roles in life, she is a wife, a mom of three adorable boys and she is quite the entrepreneur. She is a wedding planner and owner of Memory Making Events and Design, photographer with her business is Samantha Josette Photography and most recently opening another business; Saúde Mobile Bar. Can you say GIRL BOSS?! She is incredibly busy but everything she does, she puts her 110% in it. She is such a caring, sweet and amazing woman and it was such a fun time photographing each other downtown San Luis Obispo.
I can’t express how it important it is, to be friends with your associates rather than think of them as competition. Here in San Luis Obispo, or wedding industry really shines through as a team as always coming together, supporting each other and having fun. I get so much inspiration from being around other photographers and other wedding vendors in our area. If you aren’t already involved in your own community, I challenge you to reach out to someone! Even if it’s a coffee date to talk about something outside of your profession, or talk about the challenges within your business that you face.
Next week I will share the AMAZING pictures that Samantha captured of me that truly represent my personality. Stay tuned ;)
