10 Years ago today I shot my very first wedding. TEN YEARS AGO. I still can’t believe it, that 10 years has flown by, and since then I’ve photographed 250. And I’ve still only attended 2 as a guest! My first wedding was for a coworker from an ice-cream and coffee shop we worked at, I was in my first semester of photography school and she asked if I’d photograph her wedding. I hadn’t been to a wedding since I was a flower girl, and had no idea what to expect. I showed up, shot an insane amount of photos (or what I thought was insane, I take more now!), stayed for 10 hours, and when I got home the pad on my index finger was literally numb from shooting all day. I was exhausted, sweaty, mentally drained and wanted nothing more than a foot rub. But I had loved every minute of it. I never looked back from that point on and decided to pursue weddings as a career. And here I am, 10 years, 250 weddings, 600+ portrait sessions, 7 hard drives, 4 computers, 4 cameras, dozens of lenses, 2 cars and a million batteries and memory cards later, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. My job has been one of the most intense things I have ever done, but it has also been one of the most rewarding. I get to capture the beginning of a love story between two people, and then see their families grow and capture that. There have been days where the exhaustion overtook the joy, but whenever I thought about switching careers, I knew in my heart that this is what was meant for me.
