Ashley & Vicente: A Scottsdale Engagement Session

From the very start of Brittany Janelle Photography I have focused my attention on growing my business through referrals. I still hold true to the belief that the best form of advertising is through past clients. I have been fortunate to have worked with amazing couples, many of which have sent their friends my way. It truly is the best compliment I could receive in regards to my career. Ashley & Vicente were referred to me by Melissa & Brandon who’s wedding I shot over 4 years ago when I was just starting out as a wedding photographer.  The reason I share this is because I am often asked how I have grown my business so quickly and how I get such great couples. My simple answer to that is give your clients a product they are proud to show off and don’t be afraid to say no to a couple you feel might not be the best fit. Every couple wants their wedding to be the best day of their life and our job as the photographer is to enhance the experience. Couples, if you aren’t 100% about the photographer you are considering take the time to meet with others. The photographer is your shadow on your wedding day so it’s important to trust and feel a connection with them.

Ashley & Vicente were so much fun to be around! Having been together for 6 years their love runs deep. There is this sense of peace and comfort between them, the kind that only comes with time and life experiences. They are as sweet and they are beautiful. They share a love for adventure which has brought them to where they are now, planning a lifetime together.  I can’t wait to photograph their El Chorro wedding this fall! XO Brittany

Hi Brittany,

Great post! As someone who is just getting started and diving head first into officially starting their business (I’ve only been doing photography on the side until now), I love what you shared about referrals being your main form of advertising. This is something I will most definitely keep in mind as my business begins to grow. I really appreciate when other photographers share their experiences and what works for them so thank you!

PS. love this session! The silhouette photo is gorgeous! And I love her floral headband.
