Today we’d like to introduce you to David Sotelo.
David, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It was during my teenage years that I was first introduced to photography. My father was a wedding photographer and I was his assistant. Never did I imagine that I would one day follow in his footsteps when I got older. My wife, Leslie, grew up with a video camera in her hands. As a little girl, she would spend her summers making movies or music videos in her parent’s backyard. When we got married the spark for photography and videography came alive again. It was just amazing how that happened.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
We’ve learned that we will never stop learning. I don’t think that we will ever reach a point where we know it all. Our journey has been one of many webinars, workshops and education courses to better ourselves each day.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about David and Leslie Wedding Productions – what should we know?
We are known for the relationships that we have with our clients. People think it’s crazy that we go on double dates with our clients but we honestly enjoy hanging out with them. The fact that we are newlyweds (5 years) ourselves gives us the ability to connect with our clients and understand the stress that can come when planning a wedding. For that reason, we end up becoming very close friends with our brides and grooms.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
We’ve had so many influencers in our life. To start off, Leslie’s parent are entrepreneurs here in Houston and they are the ones that we go to for business advice. When it comes to creativity our friend Jason Smelser has been a great help. He is a photographer here in Houston and has given us so many tips to better our work. Also, great creatives like Amy and Jordan, Katelyn James, Vision + Heart and Ray Roman have inspired us. Above all it’s been God who has given us the creativity and wisdom to run this business.
