Day 503 – Six Years Photographing Weddings

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!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
