Jim Garner has been dubbed by American Photo was one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world. Knowing the pressure that must come with working to that kind of success, we had to ask Jim Garner about how he was able to prioritize his marriage through it all. We asked Jim: What advice do you have on creating a strong marriage?
His good advice:
- You must separate work time and family time.
- Give yourself fixed hours when you’ll do work.
- Give each other space when you need it.
- Once you have kids, a date night is a MUST.
“A LOT OF BAD RELATIONSHIPS CAN HAPPEN IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF EGO. YOUR MARRIAGE IS ONE RELATIONSHIP YOU DO NOT WANT TO MESS UP.”
Thank you, Jim, for sharing your experience!
