I think I've figured out what I want to do with my life: be a concert photographer. Music has always been a huge part of my life. My dad, Phil Bright, is an insanely good guitar player, he owns and operates his own recording studio, and has made music his career. I also play a few instruments and sing (I'm very rusty now though), and my husband has a band that I do pictures and videos for.

With my love of music also comes my love for concerts. There's something truly magical about concerts. The electric energy of the crowd, the butterflies in your stomach before the band walks out on stage, screaming when they play your favorite song and crying when they play the song that got you through a tough time. There's nothing like seeing your favorite band live. Mine is Twenty One Pilots. I've seen them 5 times since 2016 and it's simply not enough. If I could go to a Twenty One Pilots show once a month, I absolutely would. They put on a great show every single time. They're incredibly entertaining and they do things that you usually don't see other artists do live. I'd love to be a photographer for them someday!

To be able to capture the magic of concerts through pictures is such a fun experience. I've done concert photography for a few local bands around Louisville such as Radiotronic, FM502, Saxony, and the Julie Baker Project, but I'm looking for more! If you're in a band and have a gig coming up soon, I'd love to be there to take some photos for you!

Have you been thinking about having a videographer for your wedding day, but don't know if you really want a wedding video? Here's why you should seriously consider it.

While videography is not in everyone's budget, there are still several advantages to hiring one if you choose to do so. And I know hearing this coming from a wedding videographer might sound biased, but there's so much that video can provide that pictures alone can not.

  1. Audio. Audio is the most important aspect of a video, especially for a wedding. You'll get to watch back your entire ceremony and hear your vows, hear the speeches from your best man and maid of honor at the reception, maybe even hear what your partner says during your first look. That definitely can't be captured through just pictures.

  2. Movement. This one may sound obvious, but it is still important. While photos can capture movement as well, video captures everything in between like dances and cute/funny candid moments in between your posed pictures. There's just something unique about movement in a video as opposed to a still image.

  3. Vibes. While photos can capture the events of your wedding day, video captures what your wedding day FELT like. Music plays a huge part in that in my films. I always pay attention to the music that's played during the ceremony and reception and find music that is similar for the video. I recently filmed a wedding that had a lot of jazz music in their reception, so I incorporated a fun jazzy song for the reception part of their video.

If any of these reasons stick out to you and are things that you want captured on your big day, I highly recommend hiring a wedding videographer. If you're still on the fence about it, I'd love to have a chat to see if a videographer is something you truly want!

This year, I have seen tremendous growth for Burn Bright Productions. I filmed 4 weddings in the last 6 months, produced 5 videos for a local band, hit 100 followers on Instagram and Facebook, went from 12 to 40 subscribers on YouTube, made a Burn Bright tik tok account and experimented with YouTube Shorts (which are actually doing really well). I also had my most financially successful year so far. I tripled my income from 2021 and actually came out with a profit after calculating my expenses from this year. I was able to put the majority of my income back into by business through buying new equipment and paying for advertising.

While this might not seem like huge progress to some, this is a big deal for me. I've learned so much this year about how to run a business like how to talk to clients, writing contracts, figuring out the best pricing for my services, marketing and advertising, business insurance, you name it. The work I've done on my business has definitely paid off and I plan to work even harder next year!

My goals for 2023:

  1. 6-8 weddings

  2. 2 music videos

  3. 1 commercials/promotional video

  4. Sell stock footage

  5. Buy new equipment (maybe a drone finally??)

  6. I'd love to experiment with stop motion and maybe have a stop motion video project this year

  7. Post regularly on tik tok and YouTube shorts

  8. Write 1 blog post a month

  9. Finding a permanent second shooter for weddings (if you're interested, feel free to email or message me!)

Thank you to every client I've worked with this year and those who supported me by watching and sharing my videos. It truly means a lot :) I feel like I'm moving in the right direction with my business and I can't wait to see what 2023 brings!
