I remember a winter afternoon, sixteen years old, sprawled out on my best friend’s living room floor, a piece of loose-leaf paper and a mug of chai tea beside me. Things to Do Before I Die. I wrote about dreams of travel, family, life experiences & I wrote “Photograph a Wedding.”
Little did I know what God had in store.
This past Saturday, September 22nd, I photographed my 100th career wedding.
[Not including second-shooting or assisting, of course.]
My heart is full. My heart is excited. My heart is ready to photograph another 100.
I love this job in a different way than when I started. I’ve been through highs and lows, seasons of workaholic-ness and seasons of “I don’t want to work for 3 months, KGreatThxBye.” I’ve been through times where I think this is all I ever want to do and times where I think, “Maybe there’s something else I want to pursue.” But I’ve ended up here, 100 weddings later, honestly, still so in love with it all.
In love with the stories.
In love with the people.
In love with the intense work days.
In love with the thrill of a job well done.
Thank you, to each and every one of the 100 couples that have taken a chance on me [especially that first year! yikes!], believed in my vision and welcomed me as a part of your wedding days.
I love this life God has blessed me with.
