Personal | Becker Rebrand

Thursday, February 6, 2014

As most of you know, in less than 4 short months, I will be standing in front of a small intimate crowd, with a distressed dresser as an alter, a floral archway above my head, in a pretty little white dress as I say "I do" to the man of my dreams. It's a moment we all dream about- and I am one of the lucky ones that gets to confess that the reality of it is way better than anything I could have ever dreamt up!

Before my fiance, Tony, and I say our vows and officially tie the knot, I have been getting asked a lot of questions that I am ecstatic to answer:

Are you going to keep your last name?
Will you still be Kate HARVEY Photography?!
But everyone KNOWS you as Kate Harvey Photography….
Do you have to change your website!?
Aren't you afraid that people won't be able to find you?..

I am excited to announce that I look at this marriage as an opportunity to grow and build my business on a new foundation. A new chapter in a well written book by God's grace. On May 24th, the day of our wedding- the second I say "I do" and that marriage license is signed…. I will officially be Kate Becker Photography!

On a chilly November day, Bethany Platter and I met for the first time at Rustica Bakery in South Minneapolis. We sipped on coffee, dreamt out loud, "talked through all the crappy ideas" (as bethany told me), broke down walls, brainstormed, and shared the best ideas in order to make this rebrand happen. Bethany said that our hearts were beating as one during our coffee date and I know we were totally on the same wave-length!

She understood me. I could say the craziest thing that was on my mind because I knew she would be able to take it and run with it. I love-- correction-- I am OBSESSED with collaborating with fellow creatives. In the two short weeks prior to meeting with Bethany, I had met with two of her friends as well- Perry and Mariah, who are both inspiring and creative individuals who have their hearts set in changing this world. Each time we wrapped up a meeting, I left with the biggest grin on my face, and my heart was full of joy and creative inspiration. And shortly, as time passed, our "business meetings" became "coffee dates". And we were no longer clients of each other, we were friends. THAT's the way businesses should work, folks! And this is why I LOVE the creative field that I work in- surrounded by people who inspire, and want to be inspired by others.

I believe that God places people in your life for a reason- And each of these individuals will never know how much they impacted me in the fall of 2013.

Bethany has been an absolutely JOY to work with in the rebranding process of my business. Please be sure to check out the rest of her work here … AND make sure to keep your eyes peeled over on Kate Harvey Photography and Duende's Facebook for fun updates on the rebrand and when the new site/logo/brand will be released!
