As the New Year celebrations die down and people are back at work, it’s time to look ourselves in the mirror and ask some tough questions.

This is not about “Am I going to go full-time or part-time in wedding photography?” but “Am I EVER going to make it in wedding photography at all?”

When you’re just getting started in wedding photography, there’s always a high level of excitement as you get things off the ground. But fast-forward six months and many of us hit a brick wall, with no traction and no portfolio to show for our efforts.

So perhaps you head to YouTube or a conference to get inspired, or maybe you invest some money, hoping it will lead to a few bookings or even just the opportunity to second shoot.

In this episode, I want to tell you that you’re not alone and I completely understand that feeling. I’ve been there and there are even moments now when I feel I’m not getting results for the hard working I’m putting in.

But rather than stumbling along in the dark, I want us to look ourselves in the mirror and figure out what our game plan is. If you’re not sure, head on over to and take action by booking a free strategy session with me.
