Documenting the art and beauty in life’s greatest moments with high-quality, deeply emotive, honest imagery demands the best of me and my team on both wedding days and the days leading up. Having a reliable, intentional schedule keeps me as a fine art wedding photographer organized and prepared for wedding days so that we arrive with purpose and passion, executing my couple’s vision for their dream days.
I wake up each morning at 6am and start my day with a cup of hot tea.
I then dedicate 15 minutes to my mediation practice. This is either stillness, visualization, or guided meditations. I use the Calm app for my mediations because it is so convenient and easy to use.
Next, I set my intentions for the day using my Bullet Journal to list my tasks and set my priorities. In my bullet journal, I review my monthly and weekly goals and head to my goal setting pages to visualize and plan for my long term objectives.
I then complete my morning routine with 15 minutes of reading. I use this time in the morning to read something motivating, inspiring, and business focused. This helps fuel my day for productivity.
After breakfast, getting my daughter on the bus, and an energizing walk, I head to the office (either at home or once weekly at my Spaces co-work) and get started on my vision and goal power hour. During this hour I work on the one goal that will power my business forward, whether it’s intentional relationship building, strategizing a new revenue stream, or planning content to break into a new market, it moves me closer to the things that are going to bring my business the biggest results.
Next, I dedicate an hour to my daily rotating business goals. On Mondays I write my newsletters, Tuesday KPI monitoring, Wednesday blogging, Thursday Pinterest, and Friday Instagram planning.
After lunch alongside some inspirational podcasts like Oprah’s Super Soul, I answer emails, take client calls, and spend time editing sessions and weddings.
I finish out my afternoon work time with my Top 3. I check my top three priorities set in my bullet journal and make sure they are completed.
I do one last laptop check before bed, complete my evening affirmations, and fall asleep to Calm.com’s Sleep and Serenity sleepcast.
