Project Description

Who We Are

11011 Photography is a new startup that took its first breath on September 1, 2018. It was founded by myself, Stephanie and my fiance Jordan. At the time when we initially discussed starting a business together, Jordan had already been a freelance wedding and family photographer for 23 years and I was nearing 8 years as a Project Manager overseeing project financials. When it quickly became apparent that we both had a passion for the art of capturing the beauty leading up to and succeeding the moment you lock eyes on your loved one and pronounce your I Do's through photography, partnering to open a brick and mortar wedding and family photography and video studio was the next logical step. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why We Exist

We saw the need. In our area, the closest physical studio is JCPenney Portraits, which does not focus on weddings. We aim to fulfill that need.

 

The advantage of having a physical studio is that our clients get to know who we are and we get to know them. It is a comfortable setting where we can converse about exactly what the client wants in a private setting consultation room. We offer an open environment where questions can be asked and answered on the spot. Our work can be viewed in person because our content is readily available on the walls and in professional wedding albums. It also allows us to store our printing, DJ and photo booth equipment, as well as tuxedo and roman columns for rental. Additionally, the building houses our photography studio, so we have flexibility to customize backdrops.  

 

Our goal is to give clients access to multiple assets of the wedding industry. If we do not offer or have it ourselves, we work to partner with other vendors in the community to provide them with a recommendation for those services that will offer a discount. The studio will be a go to not only for the wedding itself, but when that couple has an anniversary or has children, our studio is still the solution for professional photography. Even in the age of technology, there is nothing more refreshing and nostalgic then walking into your home and on the walls seeing the progression of your family through memorialized photography.

Why We Are Seeking Funding

The The past few months and initial funding have been used primarily to focus on set up of the studio, including furnishing, leasehold improvements, camera and drone upgrades, training new-hires, and establishing processes and procedures. Now we would like to turn our focus on marketing efforts to build new clientele. This is where we need your help.

 

Jordan and I are seeking funding to help us and our company attend two upcoming bridal shows hosted by Bride World. One show is on February 24th, 2019 in Riverside, CA and the next show is March 10th, 2019 in Anaheim, CA. 

 

Bride World is well renowned expo with the largest gathering of wedding professionals, planning ideas and inspiration and will therefore help us gain visibility. The funds would be used to introduce ourselves to the clients by helping to pay for our display booths, showcase Sling Studio equipment, marketing materials and prizes. This will build our brand faster. We want to become known as Riverside's go to when seeking a lifetime family wedding photographer and videographer. We pride ourselves in our customer service, which to date has helped us keep repeat clients. We enjoy helping others enjoy their photographic experience. Photography has been known to promote family togetherness and overall happiness. This funding is the start to jump starting our business so that down the one we can achieve one of future company goals of offering volunteer programs teaching youth in the community photography and editing skills. 

From Stephanie (Co-Owner)

Thank you in advance to all those who choose to help Jordan and I. Having a prominent stake in my community and leaving a legacy for my family while doing something I love is truly a dream come true. I am very proud and thankful to my parents because I have years of family portrait session photos, especially now that some of the members in those photos are no longer with me. Now I have a revenue of my own to continue that. Photography is important and I hope you will join Jordan and I in spreading that message.
