This year we are celebrating our third year of marriage. It is hard to believe I have been married for three years, and at the same time it feels like Philip has been a part of my life forever. If you asked me four years ago, I would not have imagined being married, let alone to Philip, but now I can’t imagine my life differently.
Being married has had a huge impact on my photography business. Before I was married I swore I wouldn’t do wedding photography, you can ask my close friends. I saw weddings as a lot of work (don’t get me wrong, they still are) but I couldn’t relate to the experience, the love, the passion, the desire, the emotions that entangle a wedding day. But after I experienced it, after I married my best friend, the love of my life; the hype of a wedding day became clear to me. Now, when I listen to couple’s talk about their husband/wife I can understand exactly what they mean, I can share in the emotions. I go home from weddings wanting to cuddle my husband. I want to renew my vows daily with him, dance the night away and relive our wedding day over, and over again. Watching my couple’s celebrate their love makes me all mushy again, and brings me back to what marriage is about.
I will even admit (reluctantly) that I often find myself hiding tears behind my camera as I listen to toasts being given, father’s seeing their baby girl in her wedding gown, and as the mother/son dances take place. Four years ago, these sappy things didn’t mean much to me, but now, they mean so much more than I can express.
I am so thankful for each and every one of my couple’s that trusts me with their memories.
Needless to say, I love wedding photography and I cannot wait to see where else God takes me and my business.
