Hello! My name is Dolly, and I am the face behind Dolly DeLong Photography based out of Nashville, TN! I am a wedding and family photographer, business owner, wife, and mom. Oh yes, and I wear at least 25 different hats when I run my business! Because I wear so many hats to operate my business, I have learned many different aspects about marketing which I want to share FREELY with you. Unfortunately, it took me far too many years to stop treating photography as a hobby, and I learned a lot of hard lessons along the way. Most importantly, I learned that if I wanted to be successful, I needed to treat my photography business like...a business! So I have poured my heart into this free resource so hopefully it can help serve other business owners, like yourself, in deep and impactful ways! I want you to succeed and grow in your business so that you can bless others as well!
"Dolly has gone above and beyond and she’s a great person to bounce ideas off! Love her and I can’t recommend her enough!"
"dolly has gone above and beyond for me"
"I just finished up a branding session with Dolly! I've been growing my health coaching business over the last two years and looking for ways to authentically share my heart, purpose, and the reasons WHY I love what I do. Dolly was kind and patient with me and all my reasons WHY (my 5 kids!)! Before she ever arrived, she did her homework with an interview working to know me and my business goals and dreams. She offered advice about clothing options/ideas, locations to shoot that would be true to my life, and suggestions leading up to picture day to make our time together successful! She truly captured what I hope others see as they engage with me on social media.
If you're on the fence about making this investment in your business, this is your sign!! DO IT!! I've already had insane interaction and engagement thanks to this branding session! You're the best, Dolly!! Thank you!!"
