Creative Rising Episode 407

[INTERVIEW]

Jennifer Ryals began her wedding photography business just a few years ago and it took off a lot faster than she hoped or expected. So like many photographers, she came into 2020 with big goals for her rapidly growing business.

However, so much has happened in the years leading up to 2020, that the COVID pandemic has caused Jennifer to truly pause and reflect on what her future as a photographer looks like.

In this episode, Jennifer opens up about her experiences with her mental and physical health as well as the racism she’s experienced as a black female wedding photographer in the years leading up to 2020.

We also talk about  how she’s been coping with the pandemic itself while serving her clients and navigating decisions about the future of her business.

This raw and open conversation is a must listen as we close out this challenging year and all look ahead to the future of our businesses.
