Wow 2015.. Just wow! Looking back on the past year, I can’t believe how many amazing couples we got the pleasure of working with and how many beautiful weddings we got the privilege of being a part of. From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone; clients, supporters, friends and family.
Here are a few highlights, memories and things I learned this year:
1) We held a couple of workshops and had so much fun. Looking forward to putting on a few more in 2016.
2) Find what you love to shoot and do it. For me right now, it is emotions and interactions that drive me. I want others to feel something when they look at my work.
3) Rice is awesome. Always have a bag handy in case it rains. Or rain covers… And if you have rain covers, don’t leave them in the car. Cause you’ll get caught in a downpour in the middle of wedding photos.. and then one of your cameras will quit working… and then another one of your cameras will quit working and you will have to go begging for rice. And your cameras will sit in rice for a week. And if you are ridiculously lucky they will start working again. All thanks to rice. Hence, rice is awesome. Moral of the story: I’m a moron. Keep your rain covers handy.
4) Having a good team makes all the difference. Without Jess and my amazing second shooters (Melanie, Rob and Rod) I would be lost.
5) Take chances. Last year, I submitted what I thought was a long shot submission for a mentorship with one of my photography heroes, Dave Brosha. That submission has changed my photography completely. I was chosen as one of three winners and can’t explain how amazing the experience has been so far. Having someone as amazing as Dave to bounce ideas off of and ask for guidance has been a game changer.
