Erica & Jeff - Love in KC (my first wedding)!

Two years ago today, October 14, 2007, I photographed my first wedding. I can't believe it has already been two years! La Brisa Photography has definitely been a wild ride for me and I owe a TON of appreciation and gratitude to Erica and Jeff for being the impetus to start my photography business! Without their support and encouragement, who knows where I would be today? I know I definitely would not be as successful. That's for sure! How do I know this? Well, from their wedding pictures, I was able to book numerous weddings in 2008 that really drove the success of my business and my photography skills!

Naturally, it helped that Erica and Jeff are both crazy good looking, super fun and adorably cute together and that made for excellent portfolio material! :)

I still do not understand how photographers can get away with being rude and obnoxious because the photography industry is all about word of mouth marketing and referrals and if you do not take care of your clients, how will you ever succeed? Over the past 2 years, my goal has always been to exceed my clients' expectations at every shoot; not just with the pictures, but with my customer service, attentiveness and flexibility and I hope that I have been successful in doing so. To Erica and Jeff, you are my rockstars and I sincerely appreciate you guys sooooooo much! :)

Now it is time to go back in time and check out Erica and Jeff's wedding pictures! I definitely could not sleep the night before and I was absolutely nervous throughout the day, but Erica, Jeff and their families and friends definitely put me at ease! What a wonderful wonderful day!

Check out Erica's very very sweet blog post to her husband today:!
