I am so blessed to do what I do. Is it always easy? Not at all. I learn something new every time I have a session. Sometimes it's the angle that I use that's really working (or really not working!). Sometimes it's the way shadows and light play off of features. Sometimes it's a client that wants something that I didn't realize. Whatever the case, I learn something new. Something to help me get better and better at what I do. Sometimes it's wonderful, and sometimes my heart aches, but both ways I feel grateful to have learned something.
Beyond that, I'm blessed to do what I do because I get to see into people's lives. I get to be part of something outside of myself for a little while, and I value that beyond any words I could use to describe that. Because people teach me little lessons over and over, and I know that these are lessons I need to learn.
This was one such event! Kelley and Charlie are a beautiful couple (perhaps you remember their groomal session here), who allowed me to peek into their private lives. A life that is filled with family and friends that love them dearly. What a beautiful event they put on to celebrate their marriage. So many friends came, there was almost no room to move! It was truly spectacular. The weather was nasty, but let up for a few formal shots (and amazing skies!) before everything got under way. Kelley looked absolutely radiant, and so happy.
Thanks guys, for letting me take part in something so beautiful!
And a special thanks to kelli bramble who second shot with me, got some awesome detail shots of the event (see last set), and literally put out two fires.
