2018 has already been a busy year right out of the gate but I don’t mind one bit if it means more time with my camera. I am just now getting around to organizing all of my photos from the last several years together on my new computer at the new workstation I just built. I have not been too active online lately with the holidays and last-minute clients but now it’s back to business!
As 2017 came to end, I got to work with two amazing clients right before the holidays to capture their special day. Alexa and Vincent were less than a week away from moving hundreds of miles away to Louisiana for Vincent’s service in the United States Army and they were about to about to give their “I Do”s. It was safe to say that they had a lot on their minds and some huge milestones were about to take place. With everything happening in their lives, the two of them were some of the most calm, easy-going, and organized couples that I have had the pleasure of working with. They enjoyed every minute together between themselves and all of their friends and family and it really showed in their photographs. We met them each in their perspective rooms to capture the special moments getting ready and the process leading up to the ceremony. From the intimate portrait session on the dance floor to the moment it was packed with happy guests, the moments after the ceremony were certainly just as special.
Off all of the weddings that I have done, this was certainly the first where the Bride and Groom’s dogs also walked down the aisle! They were even there to assist in getting ready before the ceremony and obviously pose for photos as well. It is all of quirks and details like that which truly make me love and enjoy what I do more and more each day. With every wedding that I do and with each couple that I meet, the more I appreciate how many factors have to come into play for two people to meet, fall in love, and decide to spend the rest of their lives together. When I work with a client, I aim to know and appreciate all of those factors and the people surrounding them that allowed it all to be possible and how that culminates on a wedding day. If that can translate through my photography and I can leave a lasting impression on a client through my work, then I know I have succeeded and I can bring that happiness and motivation to the next one.
Here’s to a great 2018 and thank you to all my past and present clients!
