Community over competition
But really, I truly believe in building relationships with other creatives, especially other photographers. I have made so many amazing friends through the wedding industry. There's no one else who quite understands what it's like to be a photographer except another photographer ;)
All I have to say is thank God for The Rising Tide Society (and other photography groups) for introducing me to so many amazing men and women. I don't think I would have made it this far in this industry without my tribe!
Of course on some of these meet ups, we take pictures of each other because duh haha. A few other photographers and I met up in Greer to exchange some head shots. It was freezing. We couldn't feel our hands or our faces, but we toughed it out for a little while. Before we ran inside to get some frozen custard, we managed to get some great shots!
