DS-Photo & Video

I am so happy at where I have come in the few last years in my business,

I started as a 16 year old, shy young videographer trying to make it into a though industry (weddings).

In 2013 I was amazed I booked 5 weddings for that summer. I was scared and concerned if I could do it.

Skip ahead to 2014 summer I have shot 27 weddings with no assistance along with 4 personal projects and over 15 real estate walkthroughs (some of million + $ homes) plus other photo shoots. I have grown in my photography and videography knowledge and skills. Not only that, but I have now been running the business aspect as well, I've learnt how to market and interact with my clients and others that I was once scared to do.

To further my business I have now entered the Devotion wedding show on March 8th 2015.

In 2013 I was over the moon booking 5 weddings...

Now in 2015 I average 4-7 calls a day for bookings (I wish I could book everyone in, I really do). I have fully booked my 2015 season and nearly have my 2016 season full. All this in just 2 years...

Moral of why I'm writing this is, Nothing comes easy in life. To get where I am now I had to make some sacrifices and choices when I was generally pose to be out partying etc. (don't get me wrong I loved every minute of learning and growing my business)

I listen to two quotes that help drive me in my passion.

"You don't always get what you ask for, But you get what you work hard for."

&

"A poor man plans for the weekend, where a rich man plans 4 years in advance"

Both can have its own meaning either in Money, or respect , or happiness etc.

I had a goal over a period of 5-10 years to shoot weddings and other projects and be at a level where my name was somewhat known for it. I never thought that it would have happened so fast.

So anything is Possible if you work hard at it and stay focus towards the goal line.

Thank you everyone who helped and support me!

Look forward to growing and learning even more in the coming years!
