Building Trust

Subscribe: iTunes Stitcher

On this week’s episode of Cocktails with the Krewe, we’re discussing the topic of trust. Joining us for cocktails and conversation are the luxury event designers behind Wink Design + Events and the ever captivating Brian Jarreau of Brian Jarreau Photography. In this episode, we learn why it’s important to talk budget early on with clients, why you must get things in writing and what Wink looks for in potential referral partners. Brian shares his insights on how to use reviews as both a wedding pro and client, how he makes his couples feel comfortable in front of the camera, the four letter word that you never want to hear from your clients (It’s not what you think!).

If you’re more of a visual person, check out our video of the podcast below. Cocktails with the Krewe is filmed on location at Republic Nola in New Orleans’ Warehouse District.
