My favorite thing about shooting weddings is that I get to help tell the story of big, important events. Really big. Really important. And I have been doing it for almost 10 years! I am so thankful that I still love my job and that I continue to be given the opportunity to join people in celebrating love.
An incredible thing about celebrating someone's marriage is, at that moment, they are starting a completely new family. Seconds earlier it didn't exist and then in a glorious instant a new family is created. New and free. Free to chart their own course and start telling their own unique story.
I love that. Because I love families. I think I love that in part because I love MY family and I know what an incredible blessing it is to wake up next to the same woman every morning and get tackled by small humans when I get home from work.
Because of all that, I am going to start shooting a lot more family photos. More of mine and hopefully more of yours. I'm not done shooting weddings (because I still LOVE it) but I just want to start telling more of this other story I love. The story of you and your spouse loving your kids.
I'll be talking a lot more about this in the near future so stay tuned. Also, reach out if you are interested in having a family session done sometime soon!
