What Are The Days All About?

I was a wedding photographer for over ten wonderful years.

I loved it. Dearly.

But I believe that the real journey begins after the wedding is over. I want to continue sharing the joys and sorrows of marriage with my clients, friends and family. To that end, I take a picture of my wedding rings or something that captures what that day has meant to my marriage, what I learned, etc.

One of the core beliefs of our wedding photography business was a close relationship with each couple. We strive to be good friends after the wedding and we try to encourage them in their marriage. I had an idea in the spring of 2011, to take a picture with all of our rings, the bride, the groom, Bret and myself. Photographically saying, “we support your marriage.”

We are especially grateful for the clients who referred us to their friends. We had the joy of photographing 3 weddings from a group of friends (the Astaritas, the Fredericks and the Tiltons). The Tiltons were married last and at their wedding, we took a picture of all three couples and us. The Fredericks have a print of this on their wall. It has become one of the most meaningful pictures I have taken.

I would love to be a part of changing to world to help more marriages last ’til death do us part.’ To help me change the world:

Post a picture on Instagram with:
Your weddings rings (if you’re married)
Your engagement ring (if you’re engaged)
Some sort of ring (if you’re neither)

Give me a sentence or two of marriage/relationship advice. Something that has helped you in your marriage/relationship. Or what you and your spouse/significant other are doing that day to build your relationship.

Use the hash tags – #ShowMeYourRings #365DaysOfMarriage

Tag me in the post (@facesbyjen)

If you’re not on Instagram, go ahead and post it on Facebook or Twitter or both! Help me change the world!!

I hope that my journey through marriage will give you joy. That you’ll have a few laughs. Maybe a few tears. And ultimately, see how much I love my husband. So, come take a journey with me!
