Emily Mahon, business SoBelle.
Started with a £2000 loan from her parents, my parents will not be in that position to lend me that sum of money so I think I will start by going to my bank to see what type of loans they have to offer and what they could do to help me start of my business? (Halifax bank)
Keep a look out on Facebook for friends that are getting married of have children that they want photos taken off, I can provide cheap or free service to help build up my portfolio of weddings. Also help Emily with any weddings and studio work she has to again help with my portfolio as well as experience.
Build up a portfolio for weddings once it gets going on Facebook as well as a website, start to think about paying for a website so I have my own domain.
Once I have got a bit of a portfolio going create business cards and postcards to give to different venues so those venues could recommend me to the couple getting married. (Emily stated in her first email that the venue is the first thing to be booked therefore that venue, if they have my business card, can recommend me to photograph their wedding).
