Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in photography but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Rishi Kumar, co-founder of Devi By Kumar Images, located in Toronto, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a Brother Sister Wedding Photography team that is known for capturing intimate and authentic moments unique to each couple! We attract couples who appreciate not only beautiful images but also the relationship that we build with their families and everyone involved.
Tell us about yourself
We are ecstatic to be doing what we love while making couples shine inside and out. Whether it's shooting in Toronto or all over the world, love is everywhere. It is this mission to capture love in all its forms that drives us, inspires us, and renews our spirit. We believe that love knows no boundaries, and together we envelop love in images that will bring smiles to last a lifetime.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Nothing is more rewarding than finishing off the successful wedding season with 30+ happy couples. After all that work and sacrifice, it's a reassuring feeling that everyone has timeless photos and enjoyed the entire process with us.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Dealing with difficult families. However, we have learned that communication before, during, and after the big day is always important so that everyone has images that they can look back at positively and warmly.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
The Top 3 tips would be:
- Think about how you can constantly provide value to your clients.
- Always ensure you put your 100% into everything you do, Big or small.
- Remain focused on your mission or your "Why," especially when things are not going your way.
