beautiful beyond my wildest dreams

July 25, 2011


this weekend, i photographed two incredible weddings. jessica & scott’s wedding on saturday and veronica & henry’s wedding on sunday. both amazing days, both amazing couples. both full of tears and laughs. both made me excited about love and life and made me happy to do what i do for a living. i also worked with two awesome assistants both weddings that made my job a breeze. being free to focus on shooting and not on carrying bags, navigating through vancouver, finding a glass of water, grabbing batteries from the other corner of the room: bliss. so thank you: rebecca, leanne, candace.

july has been a big month. this weekend marked weddings #6 and #7 of the month; with my final july wedding this saturday. i can’t believe i did it [or i almost did it] — and i still love it. i’m tired, yes, but it’s a lovely tired. it’s a rewarding tired–the joy that comes after hard work and perseverance. “the Lord is my strength & my shield; in Him my heart trusts & i am helped… the Lord is the strength of his people.” Psalm 28:7-8

i feel like i have been a little silent on the blogging front this month–and that reflects my life lately. it’s a natural tendency of mine to retreat. when life gets busy, work gets hard, i become overwhelmed, i need to sit alone and i certainly don’t have anything to say or the energy to say it. just like i am not having multiple coffee dates with friends a week right now, i can’t find the energy to blog my heart weekly. this is summer jamie. i used to push myself and feel like “this is summer! go live a lazy summer’s day! take a full day off, go be with people!” and i do. i do rest, i would fall apart if i didn’t–but truthfully… my huge adventures can wait til the fall/winter/spring. in the summers, i know that i live best when i work hard, relax alone or in small groups [most of the time] — and enjoy an occasional party with friends that is much deserved.

and i love it. it’s a season & it’s a good season. happy to be in the middle of all the work, happy that autumn always comes along, happy that winter [oh glorious relaxing, slow, cozy winter] comes along and completely happy when it all starts up again some spring.

life is good.

i want to share this song with you by phil wickham. brought me to thankful, rested, joyful tears sunday morning as i read my bible and prayed at home alone before the wedding. it is so good to know true Love.

    Indeed! He is true love, and He knows the words of our lips and our hearts. He is faithful, even in the dry, weary, quiet seasons :)
