Last winter I kickstarted this whole crazy season of wedding photography with an incredible, thoughful one-day workshop held by the the talented, savvy and completely endearing CT wedding photography duo, Justin & Mary Marantz. I attended with Sarah True of True Event, and we just wrote pages and pages and pages of notes, nodding our heads and taking it all in. You can see a photo of me wiping tears away if you click here and scroll down to Spread the Love. Yes, it was THAT kind of day!
At this workshop, Justin and Mary instructed, inspired and extolled the value of spreading the love—doing something for others not just because of what it nets you in return. That if you do enough of that, the return will be great overall. The talked about their goal of inspiring loyalty beyond reason in their clients, and how such a simple philosophy directs all that they do.
It was a truly amazing day, and I just can’t say enough about it. It’s a workshop not just for photographers, but for other professionals in the wedding industry, too—as an exploration of working together to be something greater together than just a sum of our individual parts.
Caterers? Planners? Floral designers? Bakers? Owners of cool event-related businesses like Canditto? (You know you want to click it.) I’d call you crazy if you didn’t go to Justin & Mary’s site and vote for them to come to your city this winter on their Spread the Love tour. (Voters get entered in a contest for amazing prizes, too–take a look!)
Hope to see you there!
