Twice a year, I gather together Maine's finest talent for a luncheon to meet & greet, network, and talk industry shop. It's not too often a bunch of such cool creatives are in the same place at the same time! Some might think it's a little odd to befriend your competition, but I adore my wedding photography friends. Having a solid group of women I know personally to refer brides for dates I am booked or to have on speed dial in case of an emergency is a tremendous asset to each of our businesses. Today, 30+ of us dined at the Eastland Park Hotel's Top of the East roof lounge. The place was abuzz with chatter as we caught up on the busy off-season and we were treated to a dialogue on our editing workflow (which I will go into in greater detail in a post tomorrow)! Thanks, ladies. Always a pleasure!
