Hello everyone! It’s Liana here, and I have a little bit of an announcement to make, so bear with me!
I need to start by saying that I absolutely LOVE weddings. I love photographing them, helping out the day of, and the whole process leading up to the wedding day. So naturally, when I found a job opening at Complete Weddings + Events for a Marketing Manager position, I immediately filled out the application. Once applied, I waited patiently to hear back from them. Three days later, I received an email to set up a first interview, and the rest flew by fast.
Last Thursday, I was offered the position out of 300 resumes, 20 first round interviews, and 4 second interviews, and I accepted.
I’m sure you’re all wondering why I’m taking time to tell you all of this, and I don’t blame you! The reason I’m explaining this to you all is because per conditions of my new role, I was required to sign a non-compete clause. What this means is past the two remaining weddings we have for 2019, I will no longer be able to photograph weddings. Now, this does not mean that K&L Photography will no longer cease to photograph weddings; it just means that the L part of the name is no longer there. Katie and I discussed this decision at length, way before my initial interview with Complete. Katie understood and agreed that she should still continue to run the business.
Again, let me stress that for our two October weddings, I will still be there! I explained this to the company and they allowed me to grandfather those two weddings in. I will still be editing photos and connecting with our current brides and grooms. However, as of October 20th, I will no longer be photographing weddings.
This was a tough choice, but the right one. This job opportunity is much more than just a paycheck to me; it’s what I want to do in terms of my career. I thank you all for your support, and again, Katie will be taking over all social media, emails, etc.!
Thank you <3
