Hello my favorite supporters!
It has been a long time since I’ve blogged and really been active online. This is a post where I’m going to wear my heart on my sleeve for a moment and put it all out there. The past couple of years have been really hard for me. It felt like I was drowning and couldn’t get up to breathe. It was a lot of learning, growing and evolving as everything in life is. Between juggling the business Sarah Kossuch Photography, family life, friends – I was falling apart. 2019 is the year I fell down. That happened because I was being tested, needed to grow, and I’m back on fire!
I have been a wedding photographer for almost 10 years. The moment I started to get my feet wet I was also then a business owner. Someone who had to do everything business wise and learn as I went. Expenses, customer service, product orders, shoot, edit, juggle “employees” meet clients. I was working non stop and at times 7 days a week for months on end. That hindered my family life and me as a person.
Through all the chaos 2019 brought, wedding photography itself is what I love the most.
With that comes my change. I have done a pretty darn good job finding incredible clients, I can’t even begin to express how amazing you are! Though, there are also times I came across clients who maybe needed more information on expectations, which is something that is a big part of this change coming soon.
When a couple selects a wedding photographer you’re selecting someone who is a professional that does this every weekend of the year, and sometimes 2-3 times in one weekend. Believe in the wedding photographer you hire. Trust them. Their background, experience and portfolio is where they earn their trust and I’m going to touch on this a bit more soon…
In 2020 I no longer offer associates. I want to connect with couples who are warm, inviting and can keep a great open communication with me. I don’t just want you to be the right couple I also want to be the right wedding photographer for you! I’m only taking on a very limited amount of weddings. I need to be able to give my couples the attention they need. I want YOU to feel that way and special, because you are. I value the work I do and who I work with.
So with all of this, I am working on updating a LOT and will post more soon in the coming weeks so stay tuned. Thanks for letting me share a little about me in 2019. <3
