Without a doubt, we would not have had nearly as much success in our first year in business without Social Media, and Twitter specifically. Networking would have been far more difficult, and ‘getting out there’ certainly more expensive.
And when it comes down to it, we for sure would have photographed far fewer weddings had Twitter not existed.Â And we wouldn’t have been able to do Jamie and Kathie’s.
We first met Jamie at a Tweetup (a meet-in-person get-together for people on Twitter) in Gastown at the end of 2009. Jakob had just arrived in Canada, Nordica didn’t have a name, and we were gung-ho to get out there and meet everyone we could.
Fast forward a bit over a year, and through Twitter once again, we learned that Jamie was engaged to Kathie. A few direct messages later, we lined things up, everything fell into place and we were set for their wedding in Harrison Hot Springs.
So, Tweetin’ and Twitterin’ for us has been part of our business since day one. And we couldn’t have been happier about it because we get to meet people like Jamie and Kathie.
