“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” –Lao Tzu
I could not stop the tears as I stood in the middle of the aisle, capturing this couple’s most important moment. I lost count of how many times I told my husband: “This is the sweetest wedding I’ve ever attended.” Granted, I’m 7 1/2 months pregnant and the hormones are crazy….but seriously, it was such a sweet day. I loved capturing their story.
I’m new at this whole photography thing…and I’m especially new at the whole wedding scene (this was my 3rd wedding to shoot). I feel extremely lucky that people have seen potential in me and have risked their most important moments with me and my camera….it’s nerve-racking and exciting all at the same time. When Kelsey called me, explaining that she needed a photographer quick, I took the challenge and almost threw up.
Fast forward to her bridal shoot and then her wedding…..and it’s difficult for me to find words that will even adequately express how grateful I was/am that she took this gamble. The same goes for the two previous weddings I shot. You can either document their day beautifully or really, really screw it up. I did not want to be the latter.
So, here’s to you Kelsey…..I hope you love these photos as much as I do and I hope even more that you will forever be proud of them. Always love your story. Cheers!
