Six years ago today, I photographed my first wedding. Two very good friends asked me to capture their very special day. I wholeheartedly (and more than likely tearfully) said yes. Half way through editing the pictures (all 3,000 of them!) I remembering rethinking the decision. How can people do this for a living? This is so much work! But then, I finished editing, put the albums together and gave them to the couple. The feeling of accomplishment, of capturing a full day of joy and magic…the happiness in their faces as they looked at the pictures…the nice finished product…I was hooked!
As of the writing of this blog, I have photographed 26 weddings. With every click of the shutter…with every new first kiss…with every tear shed…I fall more deeply in love with this wonderful joy of a job. Even after so many weddings, so many years of photographing, I still get weepy when the wedding march starts or the groom sees the bride for the first time.
I can’t wait to see what the next six years hold in store!
