Will and I are officially signed up for The Herrinton's Wedding Filmmaker Workshop and couldn't be more excited!! Seriously, we are counting down the days - only 31 left!!
We have gotten a few questions about WHY we are doing this. And let's be honest, that's a valid question! We are photographers, so why invest in a wedding videography workshop? Honestly, we went back and forth on this ourselves. We are at a place in our business where we are still growing... And growing takes A LOT of money! Equipment, monthly 'dues,' taxes, editing software, image storage, outsourcing etc. all add up and it puts us in a place where we need to be very intentional with our purchases. It would be easy to say that we like the art, we like the craft, we like the excitement of creating wedding videos, but before we made this big decision we had to dig deeper and go back to the WHY of why we are in business in the first place.
We didn't create our photography business because we liked taking photos. Of course, we DO like taking photos, but we could like pretty pictures and not own a small business. In fact, it would have been much easier if we stopped at that!! But instead we had to go further to make the little headache of owning a small business worth it. What it really comes down to is that we are in business to enrich people's lives through telling stories, and that is much more powerful. It's why we blog our experience instead of just sending a CD. It's why we get to know our couples. It's why we care whole heartedly about what we do.
So, videography isn't NEW to what we do, it's new to how we do it. I don't have all the answers yet about if or when we will incorporate videography into our business, but for now, now we are seeing if it fits in with our story telling! I can't wait to send out updates soon! Keep an eye out!!
