In life there are relationships that are built to last. Like a marriage that moves like a well oiled machine. Even when friction comes, the oil keeps everything running smooth. I have been married for almost 40 years to a great woman, who has honor to her name.
In business, when you find someone who shares your vision, that is a dream relationship. When you find someone like I have found as a partner in business like Emily Brauchle, you find someone who is passionate about what she does and will sell out to build the brand. She always amazes me.
Now when you come into a business partnership “relationship” with a friend of another business who wants to grow and become that passionate individual like yourself, you then feel like you are not spinning wheels, but getting good traction to accelerate. That person we have found is Colleen Page of La Dolce Salon in Carmel, IN. She offers that “Sweet Champagne Experience” in her salon, the same way that Bello Romance Photography offers to “Capture Romance”. In our newfound relationship, we have merged to offer that sweet romance to our clients / friends.
In this world of fleeting relationships that fade away, or burn out, we have found a good heart in Colleen. Now together, we can offer our clients a wonderful salon experience and then beautiful images to follow along. This Sweet Champagne Experience” followed by “Capturing Romance” in images has elevated this experience to another realm. This combination can make for the most wonderful wedding day experience.
The bottom line to all this that makes it work is the lack of ego. When one photographer won’t talk to another, it’s either because they are jealous or afraid of the competition. The same with a salon owner. No matter how kind we are, there will be those who are intimidated or jealous. Not so with La Dolce Salon and Bello Romance Photography, a great Italian Merger of sweetness and romance.
I am thankful for a woman of the caliber of Colleen Page and truly feel blessed to have her as a friend to Emily and I.
La Dolce & Bello. La Dolce is sweetness, and Bello means beautiful. Sounds good,like an Italian Merger should. Doesn’t it?
Bring on the Champagne Mimosas, Chocolates, and the Romance. Let’s party!
