As you will recall, I was contemplating with giving up wedding photography. Not that I could not do it, there was just too much for one person to cover. Wedding photography is details, details, details. These are one of the few days in a woman’s life that capturing the day in all its glory, will matter years from that day. It is important to document guests, flowers, table settings, venue, and most importantly the blushing bride. I won’t accept to photograph just anyone’s wedding. There is a sit down with both the bride and groom. This isn’t to discriminate, but determine if we get the vision together and the syle they want for their memories.
I met Matt and Kimberly from their wedding approximately 4 years ago. While I didn’t truly meet them, I actually was a second shooter at their wedding. They did all the decorating themselves for their wedding and made everything picture perfect. They had a table at their wedding for SSgt. Charles Cartwright, which sealed my suspicions about these two being the real deal.
Sometime in 2016, I lost my interest in photography. Taking photographs, processing photographs, or anything to do with photography in general. I am not sure if there is a deeper meaning to this back and forth, but nevertheless, I continue to take photos. I asked a single pregnant mother if she would allow me to take photos of her and her daughter. I think at first she was reluctant, but whatever changed her mind, I am glad she chose me.
Well, 2016 provided some ups and downs for many of us. I had a business, then I didn’t have one and then I kind of kept photographing because, well, I do love to take photos. So, the first shoot of 2017 is the man about town and his dog “Uzi”. Also, his parents came in to town as well. Hayden asked me to take a few shots of him, his dog and his parents as they were visiting for the weekend from Pennsylvania.
