Michelle Boyd + PV Takeover + Day 4

“A while back, I had a staunch ‘No Indoor Weddings’ policy . . . boy, was I missing out! One of my most beloved planners reached out for a hotel wedding last year, and she convinced me to first see the space and meet the couple. I was in awe, and frankly, feeling a little stupid for being so afraid of indoor spaces! This place wasn't just a hotel, either—it was an old brewery recently remodeled into the most amazing boutique hotel in all of Texas! What’s more, the bride and groom's family-owned steel company played a huge part in building the hotel, and our suave groom handcrafted many of the decor pieces, too. The history within the walls was breathtaking, and created the most magical environment for both their engagement (pictured here) and wedding. Letting go of my old ‘policy’ has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career, and I just have to encourage you to let go of any stigmas or fears you have when booking clients—it will grow and change you as an artist for sure!” @michelleboyd

“It's no secret that we live in the digital age, and what that means for us film photographers is we have to graciously educate our clients along the way. Whether they ask about film during your first client meeting, or don't notice or care until you're sealing up that first roll, I believe the most important factor in educating your clients is confidence! We can weigh the pros and cons of film vs. digital ‘til the cows come home, but at the end of the day, your confidence in your own work and abilities is what allows your clients to trust you! Speak boldly and surely about your art and your process, and then move on to listening to your clients’ story. Be invested in who they are, and then offer a bit of yourself back—it will instantly make your clients feel comfortable with you, no matter what kind of camera you use!” @michelleboyd

“I don't think I can adequately convey how incredible it is to work with PhotoVision in one Instagram post! From the first job I sent in, the team at PV has been pivotal in my growth as a photographer. When I have a question about my scans, they don't hesitate to look it up and walk me through an issue. When I have random technical questions, they've got answers (specifically @_stephenwood—I've asked him to write a book for us all to no avail!). When I have dreams, they encourage me beyond belief. When I first starting shipping off my precious film to the lab, I was anxious to the point of losing sleep. After working closely with the incredible team at PhotoVision for years now, I rest easy knowing I have the BEST people at my back. It's genuinely a priceless experience to work with such caring people!” @michelleboyd
