When I planned my own wedding a few years back, I picked up the Ottawa Wedding Magazine to help me sift through the seemingly endless options when it came to vendors in the area. It was a huge help. It was also about this time that I started my goal of having one of the weddings we photographed featured in the magazine. And now, just a few years later we are up to 3 features/articles in this fantastic publication (hopefully with more to come)!!
This year has just flown by so quickly and has been so busy that I completely forgot to post about all of our amazing publications from 2016! We have been lucky to be featured in multiple magazines and online publications over the last year and I will be sharing them with you all over the next few weeks, but I am starting with one that we heard about quite a while ago and I was just completely over the moon about – the Fall/Winter 2017 edition of Ottawa Wedding Magazine.
Last month I mentioned our very first publications and it was awesome! I have been spending quite a while submitting even more sessions to blogs and magazines in the hopes of sharing the beauty of my couples’ days with even more people. It has been a lot of work and is teaching me to get used to being told that my work wasn’t quite right, or that I was just a little too late as another similar session was already planned. But the few I have been told yes for made it all worth it (and a little tougher skin is probably a good thing in this business).
Seeing my work published has been a dream come true and apparently that dream is still going as we have been published in yet another magazine and more wedding blogs!!
There have been quite a few announcements from us so far in 2015. Most of them have been upgrades to our services that I have been working on for quite some time (like our new Wedding Registries program and Online Store), but the a few were truly a dream come true!! I can hardly believe it, but this month we were published in both online and print publications!!!
I have been working very hard on submitting weddings here and there, trying to write as well as I could (as you know this isn’t really a strength for me) and working with my past brides to come up with the best submissions, but to be honest, I didn’t really expect any of the submissions to come to fruition. But it was worth a try, and you know what they say, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. So after submitting, I just waited. I figured I wouldn’t hear much, if anything at all, but then the emails started coming in…
