Melissa Ergo is a wedding photographer based in Santa Cruz, California. Wedding photography is a competitive business – there’s a relatively low bar to entry so it’s a crowded field. So how does someone stand out, make a living, and actually be successful in a field that accepts all comers? Our guest Melissa Ergo shares her story and dishes on how she’s been able to be herself, while being a distinctive and successful professional photographer.
We talk about her childhood, her education, and how she got started in the photography business. We go over the tools she uses to capture the light through the glass of her lenses. Perhaps most importantly, we talk about what drives her to keep working so hard to deliver uncanny photographs for her clients on what is often the most memorable day of their lives.
