Cherry Thomas

Santa Barbara based wedding photographer

Finding the right photographer is not always easy but if you do, then you will have wonderful memories which can be enjoyed for a lifetime!

This is why when Cherry Thomas, owner of By Cherry Photography, popped up in my inbox I had to check her out!  Not only has she been awarded for her photography, like Wedding Wire “Couples Choice Award” for 2017, but you can see in her photographs that she truly cares about her clients, capturing the perfect moment with genuine authenticity.  Even though Cherry focuses on weddings, she has also done family portraiture and event photography!

If you are looking for a wedding photographer then you must reach out to Cherry! And although Cherry is based in Santa Barbara, she is open to travel for her clients…and has been to places such as the Bahamas, Mexico, Boston, Texas, Florida, Michigan, and Washington. She says “I’m always up for a good airplane ride!”  I am so excited to celebrate this lady boss and give you a small taste of her life. Scroll below to learn more about Cherry!

WHAT 2-3 TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHER LADY BOSSES?

  1. Have a business plan-no matter how generalized it is. I believe in every year that you should determine your income goals or booking goals. And then do a business check-up every 6 months to make sure that you are on track so you can adjust your plan of action accordingly.
  2. Have a CRM that can quickly show you projected income 12 months out. Nothing will keep you more empowered about money than knowing what is coming in. If that number isn't ideal then you can decide now what to do now and plan to close the gap for later in the year instead of stressing about money when there's suddenly a shortfall.
  3. Surround yourself by supportive entrepreneurs who can understand your lifestyle and what it takes to be a #bosslady.

WHAT IS A FUN QUIRK ABOUT YOU THAT NO ONE REALLY KNOWS ABOUT YOU?

I’m a huge sci-fi geek!

HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE TASTE AND WHY?

Like sea salt caramel in chocolate chip ice cream. I like life to be a mixed bag of flavors that I can sink my teeth into.
