Highlights of 2019 A
January 7, 2020
I’m sitting here, after having spent the past couple of days looking through the entire season of weddings. Wow what a season full of love. Ten whole years into photography and I still can’t believe that I get to be a wedding photographer. Not only that, I get to work WITH MY HUSBAND, and we are able to make a living doing something we LOVE. How many people get to say that? I pinch myself. What if I had never decided to try taking that first family’s portraits in 2009? I didn’t know what I was doing. What if I was afraid to try? What if Scott had never come to me and said “I’d like to learn to shoot with you, and I think we should shoot weddings.” How would life be diffferent?
Ten years ago, we had just closed down 2 of the 3 small gyms that we owned, and basically gave the third one away to someone willing to take it over. We had bought those gyms to take the place of the Interior Design business that had stressed me to the core. We were feeling discouraged, to say the least, and we were BOTH still working nights in the restaurant industry, on top of raising 4 kids.
In that broken state, our photography business was born. Chasing the dreams of a destination wedding photographer seemed SO far-fetched. To be honest, I don’t know how in the world we were able to get it going, as there were a million reasons why it seemed like it would never work. But here we are. Happy and hard-working, and truly blessed to have gotten to be a part of all of these beautiful experiences.
We hope you enjoy this post! Part B, with more images, to follow. <3
