Reflections + A Happy Anniversary

I can’t believe how fast time flies by. It’s hard to think that next month will be 3 years since I shot my first wedding. Obviously that isn’t that long ago, but it feels like it is because SO much has happened. Two years ago today, I was honored to be a part of the wedding of Jamie and Brad. These two were such a fun couple to work with and I still remember Jamie’s easy going and fun personality throughout the day of. So I just want to say a HUGE congratulations on two years to Brad and Jamie – can you believe it’s already been two years?! I can’t!

In the past two years I look at the weddings I have photographed and where this business of wedding photography has been and where it’s going. Because of amazing couples like Jamie and Brad, I’m truly doing my dream job. Having the ability to photography such happy memories in peoples lives is definitely an honor, and I’m so appreciative of all the couples I’m able to work with. 2010 was really my breakthrough year. I started shooting weddings in the summer of 2009 and I was so blessed to be able to book a few more weddings throughout that year. But in 2010 I started to book a good number of weddings and other types of sessions and also started to see some potential in the business. Since Jamie’s wedding two years ago, we’ve had the priveldge of working with 32 other couples on their big day.

Two years ago, I was still working strictly out of home, meeting couples at Starbucks and anywhere else we could meet, and I was saying if I could just have a studio… half a year later I was moving into a studio where I could show off my work and meet with so many amazing people! I feel tremendously blessed and could not thank God more for the position I am in today, and to all the couples that I’ve had the opportunity to work with in the past and future, from the bottom of my heart I’m forever thankful for you allowing me to have this opportunity. I definitely look forward to the future to what it holds and cannot wait for what’s in store. Happy Tuesday everyone. 🙂
