“If I could tell you how I felt in words, I wouldn’t need photography.” Something I have told people, that couldn’t be more true. I don’t do it for money, or fame but because my heart uses it to speak.
Teaser from the session with Taylor tonight. Been a while but I’m really digging the images from the shoot and felt good to get shooting again!
I had the pleasure of photographing the Gray Family for their holiday photos. This is one of those families that reminds me how fortunate that I am to be able to do what I do. There was fighting, crying, laughter, and lots of goofiness during their session. More importantly there is so much love and these are some extremely down to earth people who make you feel like you have known them forever. I have said it before and I’ll probably never stop saying it, but my clients thank me for their sessions and prints etc. but I always end up feeling that I should be the one thanking them for quite simply making my job zoo easy and fun. Anyway enough of my sappiness and take a look at their family photos.
What better way to start the new year with something brand new that you haven’t seen from me at all. A WEDDING!! Woohoo!! This has been something I have been hesitant about doing until I felt that I was ready. Let’s be honest. Weddings are a huge deal. Cue the 8 mile soundtrack. You only get one shot. Most photographers will tell you they either love it or hate it. Me personally, I loved every second of it.
This is a couple that you have seen on my blog before. I have gotten to know them over the course of the last year and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple for my first wedding. I really don’t have a lot to say other than how much I love this couple, how fortunate I am to have met them and that they brought me along for the ride. Cheers to Brad & Sara Anderson! Enjoy the images!
I did it. I shot a wedding. Some will tell you with all their being, “don’t do it, they are awful.” You don’t have enough experience. You are too young. Some of the veteran photographers will try to deter you from it. Now realistically most of them are trying to help because don’t get me wrong there is A LOT that goes into a wedding. The final decision will come to the photographer. The schedule will revolve around you. Pressure? You bet.
But honestly, I loved it. I couldn’t get enough. Yeah my feet hurt after. I shouldn’t have bought those shoes the day of. But at least they looked good. And I’m young, a few blisters won’t hurt. In fact they build character. Okay not really, but it was well worth it.
This is just a teaser image. One of the last shots of the night. I’ll talk more about Brad and Sara in the full post. But for now, just to get your mouth watering for more, here is the first bite. Head over to the facebook page to see more teasers leading up to the full blog post.
