When April told me she was moving her date to work with me, I think I literally cried. I thought about how the couples who book me are putting their confidence in me to be a part of this personal, special day and that is huge. It’s a big responsibility, and I never take it lightly, but I also know it’s more than just taking photos. I always want to influence people somehow. Let them know I’m not just here trying to make a living but it’s important to me to give them a huge gift and hopefully somehow give them a part of myself.
I loved getting to know this couple through engagement photos, the wedding and after wedding photos. We hung out like old friends, talked about our faith and how much we love the beach. This is the best part of my job that never seems like a “job.”
