Welcome to my blog! This is both my online business and personal journal where I share all of my photography and business projects! Allow me to introduce myself...I am Catherine Guidry, a Louisiana wedding photographer. I was raised in a small town but consider myself a big dreamer. My favorite things in life are spending time with friends and family, bike riding with my husband and working on new creative projects! I am all about meeting new friends and can't wait to meet you!
If you work in the wedding or events industry, it’s safe to say you know just how important getting published is. It allows for your work to get exposure and for your name to get out there into the world. 95% of couples use blogs and magazines to plan their wedding, and publications are the way to get in front of those couples. But the process can be daunting—and not to mention time consuming. Researching which publication will be a good fit, compiling images, getting content from your client… all for potential rejection that will leave you back at square one.
That’s where my guest on the podcast today steps in! Meghan Brown is the manager of Two Bright Lights, a submissions platform that allows photographer and vendors to submit images of their event for publication. The genius behind her company is that you just have to fill out one submissions package! They partner with 100s of publications for just about anything and everything, and you can submit to as many of them as you want with just a couple of clicks. It has truly revitalized and changed the way publications are submitted!
I loved hearing Meghan talk about her organic journey into this particular role—from starting out as a singer into the events world and finally realizing her true passion for products and marketing: growing and marketing businesses, creating products to solve a problem in the industry… it’s all about making life easier for creative business owners. And let me say the work is SO appreciated 🙂
