I opened an email recently, saying that the Rice Lake Award Program had selected me for the 2018 Best Wedding Photographer.
Each year, the Rice Lake Award Program selects companies that have achieved marketing success in the local community. These companies enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and the community.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed when the winners were selected. Also, the focus was on quality, not quantity in 2018.
The Rice Lake Award Program honors the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the area. Companies that have shown the ability to use the best practices to create competitive advantages and add long-term value.
This program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Therefore, the organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. The program’s mission is to recognize the small business community’s contributions to the U.S. economy.
(Do you see how happy Maddy + Jamier are in these photos? This is totally how I felt when I opened this email!)
I want to offer a huge thanks to everyone who has supported me in my photography journey. Whether you’ve followed along, sent referrals, worked with me or simply offered a comment or a like on my posts, I appreciate all of you!
Over the last 4 years, my hobby has grown from a dream, to a side-hustle and even further on to a business that I’m able to support myself and others through.
So, if you’re thinking about taking the leap to pursue your passion, take a chance.
