One of the beautiful things I get to do because I work for me and make all the decisions (good, better, and worst) is write from the heart. It has always been my thoughts to share some of me with others that are thinking of hiring me to photograph their wedding. You don’t hire a machine. Photographers live, breathe, bleed, and like everyone…..eventually die. It is not possible to have just part of me show up to shoot for you. It’s a package deal……all or nothing!
So! Tonight while Lightroom exports a disk of images I choose to write and expose a little more of my heart.
Why do I shoot weddings?
I do so because it gives me the biggest emotional jolt. I feel good! NO matter what is going on, I am alive, vibrant, and liking what I do! I believe in marriage, and I know just how hard couples are going to have to work at it to make it last.
Would it surprise you to know I pray for my couples? That side of me so often remains on the quiet side because all the world wants to tell you there is no place for religion in business. They are right. “Religion” is overrated. I believe in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Will I shove my beliefs down your throat? Nope! You have to find the way home on your own. Of course I am going to pray about it
I am a trained chef. Credentials to prove it.
I can design a fairly nice website!
Godiva Chocolate is great but I like Ethel M’s better.
Bare feet, jeans, and ride bareback…. I grew up riding shortly after I was three. There’s a place on the back of the right horse just letting the horse have his/her way…….riding in the wind and sun. The mind turns off and the spirit soars. Love it!
As much as I hate to admit it a friend nailed me perfectly by describing me as an armour coated marshmallow.
I love flowers. Favorite? One yellow rose given to me out of love! If you don’t love me………the whole freakin’ dozen.
Passion in photography? The next image.
Why do I choose this image to post with Reflections? She chose to be vulnerable for the camera. No pretense. “This is me! Love me or hate me….this is me behind the mask”! Most are not that brave!
See what I mean? “This is me”! No apologies! I love anyone willing to put their heart in their hands and let me really see them! Game? Yes? Then perhaps you are my next wedding!
Ok… enough honesty for one evening!!
