As I sit stage left at dress rehearsal for High Desert Dance Art's annual spring recital, I marvel at how many adults are engaged for this event. It truly does take a village to pull off a production. Studio Jay is here taking photos of each dance group, involving dozens of performers, costumes, hairdos, and props.
It's June and besides dance recitals, we are happily up to our eyeballs in weddings. Whatever event Studio Jay has been hired to be a part of, a group effort makes for a more successful and beautiful wedding or recital. We all work together, help each other and offer support and encouragement. We maintain appropriate contact with our clients and with their other vendors prior to the event.
Tom and I pride ourselves on being organized. What's that got to do with anything? Everything! We are going home today and will process photo orders for 49 dances and dozens of dancers. In preparation for a wedding we meet with, talk to, email brides and grooms. We keep detailed notes of music requests, picture poses, number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, who's going to toast and when, wedding family relationships, and on and on. A professional photographer or DJ will be experienced in their knowledge and assessment of what's needed at your event, and keep the details straight. Though we may be at the forefront of your special day, we work to appear as though we are seamlessly, quietly in the background. We want YOU to be the star!
