We have 8. Our brides don't book a year+ in advanced here in Austin. It's not uncommon for a bride to book me 4-9 months before her wedding.

People plan really early here so we've been full for 2013 since July. I used to think it was that way everywhere, but I think it's just a D.C./Philly/NY area thing or something...

Still shooting portraits for now but i am going to try and see if there is a market for selling art prints. I have reworked the site to give the impression i am selling art.

I'm looking at renting gallery space in an art district of Melbourne.

If that does not fly i may walk away from photography and look at doing something else. I enjoy shooting personal work but have lost the passion for weddings and portrait work.

Glad i have done it, and have really loved it over the years but it's not fair to clients if i'm no longer driven.

I think it's more likely a Hoffer thing!

I shot 10 this year and only have one booked for next year. A lot of the bookings from this year were late but I'd much prefer to have a couple more on the books so I can start planning upgrades.

I think the opposite I get quite a few inquiries for last minute weddings. I think it also has to do with how much experience and referral base you have.

10 so far. Meeting with a bride tomorrow. I have a bridal show in January. I hope to use that to fill up the rest of my year.

I have 8 at present with one in particular that I'm confident will translate. That's pretty unusually high for me at this stage so I'm quite pleased. Usually I do most of my booking in the first three months of the same year.

We have 25. Not sure if we want to do more or not. We might cut back in 2014 too. I have been having a lot of thoughts about taking the business in a new direction for 2014 and beyond. So we shall see what happens and where we want to go.

29 but that includes 2 second shooting gigs and waiting on a couple more. I won't take much more... maybe 1 or 2 and close out the year. I would like to leave some dates open to do some second shooting for some peeps. I think a lot of people are booking late these days... *shrug*

At this point, I'll be focusing on doing more boudoir stuff and the 2014 wedding season (talking to a few brides).

6 . I worry that I perhaps didn't give enough attention to inquiries during the summer months now when things were busy. I was aiming to improve on my first year, but that seems very unlikely sadly... just hoping more will appear, but haven't had an inquiry for sometime now... We shall see I guess...
