The first snowfall of the year has me reminiscing on this dreamy engagement sesh from last year!🥰
I think this will forever be one of my fave sessions ever. I mean can't you see why?!
These two are the sweetest & actually got married this summer! So, now they are Mr. & Mrs. Mattek! 🎉
They were wanting fall pictures, and then this happened... It was amazing. We hiked into this lake & had it all to ourselves, I was able to dress for it, butttt, Katrina & Kyle froze their bootays off! But, I think it was so dang worth it! 🙌🏼
With winter coming it's time for me to rant a little... I love (I mean LOVE) winter photos! If you are hesitant on them, don't be! Let me reassure you that they will be so beautiful. It may be cold, but, I'll let you cuddle together & get all cozy to create the dreamiest photos! It'll be worth it! Just let this photo convince you! I've even shot families (kiddos from the age of 6 months to 15 years old) before when it was -37 with windchill! So, if they can do it, so can you!💃😍

FIRST OF ALL - if you haven't seen, we just launched our latest course If I Made an Online Course...after 4 long months of creation, it is HERE. We’ve had countless requests to take you through the step by step process of how to create your own online course - to put in the work once for something that will provide continuous revenue time and time again. .
In Episode 8 - we are discussing even further what that process will look like and how EASY it is to feel like you aren’t an “expert” and you don’t have enough time, followers, etc. BUT you are wrong and we want to prove it to you!
Let’s say you are a florist. Something big to takeaway is even if there are a million other Floral courses out in the world - people want to learn from different people. .
No one runs their business the exact way YOU do, and that is why people take MANY courses over their lifetime, to pull information from each person. Do not let that discourage YOU from teaching the world your process.

How do you plan your week? Mondays can be hard for some people. Specially if you had a wedding during the weekend.
This is why is so important to take time to organize everything before you start your week. ✅
If you are a solopreneur, you probably have to do everything by yourself. To make the most of your time, it's super important to plan ahead!
I'm not going to talk about Sunday, because you need a day off. And let's say you had a wedding on Saturday, Sunday must be for family, relax, and recharge. You deserve that! 💕
😉 Small tips so you can have a more productive week:
1 - plan your goals for the week. maybe new clients? that campaign that you are postponing to do? the real wedding that you need to submit for a blog?
2 - don't do your personal things just when you have time during the week. You know that will drive you crazy.
You need to go to the supermarket, pay your bills, do your laundry, these things that need time and you cannot skip.
3 - if you decide to work on Monday, don't schedule anything outside your office. no new clients, no site inspection,..
instead, take time to schedule your posts for social media, reply emails, work on your budget, and things like that.
What do you like to do on Monday so you can have a more productive week?
Calling all event pros! 💫 Can I share a secret with you guys? So visual branding is a way of creating a seen language between a business and a consumer with non-verbal communication. That may seem like a mouthful, but there are a small ways to position yourself to attract the clients you want. Color is one of the main things you can do to speak a specific tone and inflection. Head over to KaleighWiese.com/free-content and I’ll send you a free basic color theory guide to ensure your using the colors that speak to your brand personality! 🌈 You’re welcome in advance!
I collaborate with a group of experienced planners to help give my students some hands-on experience through internships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My students got the opportunity to work with another event professional so they can get to see first hands what producing events look like behind the scenes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For newer planners, I always felt it was important to give them the real deal. Allow them the opportunity to experience what a real event was like. Not the events that they were accustomed to working on by themselves or with friends but truly working on events that included multiple vendors, a large amount of guest, following a timeline, tips and tricks to setting up and breaking down, working with venue coordinators, thinking quick on your feet and just experiencing all things that happens at an event. In this industry you never know what you will have to do! It's better to be prepared than not! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I offer all my students. Whether you are coaching, participated in a workshop or attended my in person course I give the opportunity to apart of any hands on internship that is offered by me or any of my industry colleagues. This way you’re not just learning theory you’re putting it into practice for real life experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ho confezionato le prime 3 box e sono stata per più di un'ora sospesa, emozionata e incantata, pensando e studiando props che fossero diversi, unici, che parlassero di una Wedding Planner, una event planner e un hairstylist e che dessero loro strumenti pratici con cui cimentarsi nella mobile photography. Tutto questo mentre @filovagando scriveva i loro bigliettini personalizzati.
Lavorare alle vostre box e renderle uniche é elettrizzante!
Although it may not feel like it, the economy has been in a pretty good place over the last few years.
However, recent turmoil created by Brexit was a major factor in UK GDP shrinking by 0.2% in the three months ending in June 2019. This was the first fall in quarterly GDP in six and a half years. Coupled with fears of a global slowdown, talks of a recession is becoming more frequent.
That said, is now a time to panic? We really don’t think so.
Our business not only survived through the recession of 2007 to 2009, we grew and came out the other side even stronger. During this period, Ian joined Pippa Mackenzie Photography and we introduced an amazing family of products. We invested in the business and in ourselves, and made sure every aspect was the very best it could be.
So our advice to you is to ignore all the scaremongering and just concentrate on getting you and your business into the best shape it can possibly be.
Double down on your brand, website, customer service and marketing. Understand your market and showcase the best of your work to your ideal client. Explore as many touch points as you can to get yourself in-front of the people you want to work with.
People won’t stop getting married. Have faith in yourself and what you do and keep your passion.
YOUR wedding, YOUR way. ⠀
Like most creative industries, there are trends in the wedding industry. Trend colours, trend styles, trend lighting, celebrity trends...⠀
There's nothing wrong with being inspired by the latest big trends, as long as they fit with your own style and personality. You want to be able to look back on your wedding in years to come and still be thrilled with the way it looked and felt, not cringing at the elements that WERE 'THE' thing to have at the time.⠀
The first part of my wedding planning process is to get to know you as a couple - to really get to the heart of what you like and what your style is. It is so important that your wedding day reflects who you are as a couple and to find ways to inject your personality and your story in to you wedding design in a unique and distinctive way. ⠀
Earlier this year, Lucy & John got married in their beautiful Suffolk garden and celebrated their marriage in a marquee decorated with an abundance of English flowers and foliage. It was their dream to have a romantic, effortless English Garden wedding. It was personal, it was elegant and it exuded their style and personalities.⠀

“Different is better than better” Sally Hogshead.
Rather than doing the same things everyone else is doing, you will stand out from the crowd if you focus on doing things differently. Especially when it comes to marketing... if you’re only marketing in social media, unless you have a massive following, it’s really hard to even get your posts seen. Did you know that less than 10% of your followers even see your posts?
My latest blog post suggested 5 ways that you could market your freelance business differently... check it out ... link in bio.

My very special friend, Kosta Savva from Kosta Savva Photography and Savva International as hair and makeup.
There are no words how much I admire him as a professional and also as someone with the sweetest and most caring heart. I do not know how I could survive my toughest time on Santorini without him and his partner ' care, friendship and support. I hope I didn't let him down with my move back to the UK when escaping my worth unhappiness and failure was the only way I could think about to survive and find myself again. And Kosta was always there for me. Hope one day I can give back his kindness somehow.
So if you are planning to focus on Santorini as destination for your weddings, please contact my dearest friend for photos and hair, makeup.
Kosta's commitment to every client means you can be confident your wedding photos will be something, you, your children & your children's children, will love looking at for years to come . With many years experience, Kosta has the knowledge and passion to capture every precious moment of your wedding day.
Kosta has been living & working in Santorini since 2006, this is why Kosta knows the best places & locations to fulfil every couple's needs and make them feel special on their wedding day.
He has also been lucky enough to be a part of many cultural weddings including Lebanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek, Catholic, Jewish and many more, ranging in size from 2 to 500 guests.
Choosing your Santorini wedding photographer is a big decision. Whilst a love of their work is very important, you must also feel comfortable with them, as your photographer will be a huge part of your day.

Posted by @weddingacademylive. Do you want to create something beautiful?
Do you want to be part of something so meaningful and imbued with so much emotion?
“Most creative’s are just keeping their heads above water. They don’t like the business stuff. The numbers can be overwhelming, and they’re doing everything they can to just be profitable. A lot of times that ends up to where you are saying yes to every job, discounting your work, and your left feeling not only broke but incredibly burnt out.” ⠀
Our pricing course with business strategist @shannaskidmore can help so you don’t have to spend all of your time working, you don’t have to be financially strapped, and clients will pay you what you’re worth. ✨⠀
Your time IS worth it. 🙌🏻 #thebuisnessyouwant .

“Existe disciplina na paixão.” Existe também acreditar no propósito do seu negócio, existe o tempo de estudo, existe visão de negócio, existe investir na sua educação pra você se tornar melhor, existe você confiar na sua equipe como se fosse sua família, existe abdicar de horas de sono pensando na sua empresa. Existe até mesmo abrir mão de grande parte da sua vida pessoal para se doar à felicidade dos outros, afinal.. essa também é a sua felicidade! “Tu te tornas eternamente responsável por aquilo que cativas”. São quase 04 anos, cultivando e abrindo mão de muita coisa para me tornar responsável por aquilo que cativamos: nossos clientes, fornecedores e apoiadores. Eu não tenho dúvida: enquanto continuar existindo a disciplina na nossa paixão, o céu será o limite para a Macamirim. #voamacamirim

Você sabe oq acontece com as pessoas que desejam ter uma vida mais ou menos?! Elas conseguem. Sim. Isso mesmo. Uma vida mais ou menos é uma vida em que o " tanto faz " prevalece. Se você tem pensamentos como: " tanto faz morar aqui o resto da vida", "tanto faz viajar ou não ", " tanto faz esse emprego ou aquele"... Você decidiu se limitar pois assim é mais seguro. É muito mais fácil viver com baixas expectativas pois são fáceis de serem alcançadas. Veja as tulipas brancas na imagem. São tantas.... Não é mesmo?! Elas são bonitas, estão saudáveis e tá tudo bem....Agora, se você olhar bem, vai ver em destaque as outras tulipas, que mesmo em quantidade menor são bem fácies de enxergar, parece até que elas têm um holofote. Oq faz elas serem diferente?! A cor? A quantidade? Sim. Isso mesmo. São poucas, mas fazem a diferença. São enérgicas, vibrantes e se destacam. Não tenha medo de aumentar as suas expectativas, ela vão te fazer amadurecer, crescer e você vai se orgulhar de ter sido a sua melhor versão.
