Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Evolve Your Wedding Business Podcast! I am so excited! Together, we’re going to evolve your wedding business into a business that gives you the freedom you want and the clients you love working with. Ready? Let’s get to it!
Today’s Guest: Jared Bauman
Jared is a Co-Founder and President of ShootDotEdit, the premium post processing company for professional wedding photographers worldwide. In 2002, Jared created Bauman Photographers, a Southern California photography studio that now produces over 75 weddings and 1,000 corporate head-shots annually. Bauman Photographers has established itself as one of the most successful examples of a customer-focused associate model, and after 11 years of profitable growth, Jared sold Bauman Photographers in 2012.
Jared has got some brilliant insights on outsourcing, time management and developing systems in your business so that you have time to go out and make more money. Even if you’re not a photographer, you’ll learn a LOT from this episode.
In this episode we’ll cover:
- How Jared created ShootDotEdit because he and his photographer friends were doing nothing but editing and had no time to grow their businesses.
- How outsourcing works & why it is so important.
- The “Zone Of Genius”.
- How to get over the mental hurdles associated with outsourcing.
- What sort of tasks you should create a system for and how to create them.
- How you can use template emails to streamline things.
- Why waiting until you’re overwhelmed and too busy is not a good time to look for an outsourcing partner.
- How outsourcing can actually allow you to make more money.

What was the thing that stood out most to you about what Jared shared in this podcast?
For me, it was how Jared makes a point to position ShootDotEdit as a partner and works with photographers in that style. That’s something we could all put in place with our customers.
