I remember the feelings I encountered as I logged into my email. Seeing the subject "We featured you as one of the Best Wedding Photographers in Milwaukee!" stirred up serious butterflies in my stomach. Was this email real? It couldn't be. Wait... it IS real. What a delightful surprise!
I clicked the subject and the email popped open:
My name's Liz, and I head up content at Peerspace! You may or may not be aware of us (we're like the Airbnb for production, event, and meeting spaces), but we're big fans of yours and wanted to let you know that we featured you in our 12 Best Wedding Photographers in Milwaukee article! https://www.peerspace.com/resources/milwaukee-wedding-photographers/ Just wanted to pop in and share the love.

I was gobsmacked by Liz's email then... and I still am today!
Such a thrill and an honor to be curated alongside a selection of fantastic photographers.
But... more than that... this feature filled my self-esteem cup to the brim, realizing that the years of effort, dedication and commitment I've injected into my clients have been recognized.
