The Wedding & Event Design Studio: New Meeting Space!

I have a new meeting space/studio!!! Beyond excited to share and announce the new Wedding & Event Design Studio where several wedding vendors in the Santa Clarita and Valencia have teamed up to share a new studio and client meeting space! Our cute little space is located in the beautiful victorian style Tanner Building in Old Town Newhall. Just minutes away from my favorite cafe, Eat Real Cafe. I may need an intervention to keep myself from stopping in that place every time I drive by.

In the past I’ve met with clients in my cute little living room and I loved having clients in my home but having a separate space for my business was always on the back of my mind. Tricia, whom is THE brilliant behind  Tricia Dahlgren Wedding Consulting & Event Coordinating, emailed me back in April to see if I might be interested in a shared meeting space. While I had to think about it a little because I loved having clients come to my home I decided quickly that it was such a perfect opportunity.  So excited to talk wedding details, have lots of laughs and cry happy tears while viewing photographs of beautiful memories in the new studio space.

Pursuit 31 Los Angeles | June Meetup

This last Monday night I held a monthly  Pursuit 31 Meetup for our Los Angeles small group at my home. We had special Guest Tina Rider of Top of the Line Tax there to give us a mini business workshop all about Self Employed Photographers.  We discussed accounting for small businesses and what programs to use, tax obligations, quarterly estimated taxes, quarterly sales tax,  how to manage sales tax, tax write offs and what are not write offs, doing business in other states, W-9’s for second shooters and more.   Tina was kind enough to give us a thick packet of information complete with dividers. It was so helpful! I had such a good time getting to see these girls again and we managed to have fun even with all tax talk involved. We made yummy Italian Cream Sodas to keep us happy during the tax talk and afterwards snacked on apple chips, veggies, flautas and guacamole.  Also see my DIY Milk Glass Party Favor post for instructions on how to make the favors I gave out.

If you are interested in becoming part of our Pursuit 31 Los Angeles Small Group contact me and I can tell you more.
