Windy Peak is boom boom boomin!

Windy Peak is growing!  Austin and I have had a great start to 2011 with our photography business.  For starters, we are an official business with the IRS (joy!) and we have a legal assumed name for the business (nobody else can call themselves WPP).  We opened a WPP bank account and have cute little debit cards that say Windy Peak Photography. We have officially booked 4 weddings, 2 bridal shoots and have another 3 weddings in the making. Considering we don't advertise yet and are only booking by word of mouth we feel like this is a great start.  We also did something HUGE last week.  We broke down and purchased a new big daddy camera- the Canon 5D Mark II. This is the crème de la crème of cameras for professional photographers.  We are super stoked about this and our image quality is going to improve dramatically. We also just purchased a much more professional website.  This was much overdo (I can't stand our current website) and should be up and running in a few weeks.  It will still be at the same address, which you should check out in a few weeks! WPP website One more super exciting piece of news- we are going live on as NC Wedding Photographers on February 14th! (Nice day we picked, ehh?) We are feeling very confident that this will bring much business for the rest of 2011 and really get us jump started to book in 2012. Right now we don't have a lot in our portfolio, only having done a few low budget weddings, so we are feeling really good about what we will be able to add to showcase on our site in the upcoming months.  Unfortunately, most of the weddings we booked are towards the end of the year, so it will be a while before you see the results. The best thing about this business: it belongs to Austin and me. I just love love love working with him and sharing this with him.  It has brought us to a whole new level in our relationship to experience this together.  He teaches me so much (he is the real pro, let's not forget that!) and is so patient with me while I'm still learning.  We have so much fun on site together and when we finish a shoot and look at our final product on the computer it's one of the best feelings in the world to know we created it together. I love weddings and he loves photography so starting this business really hits home for both of our passions. I hope we do well and take over the triangle in wedding photography!  To all my blog followers, watch out! One day you may be very happy you know us! :o)
