Married | Jess & Tim
Good news is I've been blogging somewhere else.
Jess & Tim's beautiful wedding is live on my website and it would be great if you can go check it out here.
It's an honour that I get to do what I do. Weddings are just the greatest thing and already I have watched 7 couples this year commit their lives to one another. Whether I'm just a guest, a second shooter or lucky enough to be the principal photographer, I adore a wedding. They are full of love and celebration and people! Gosh I love the people. The gorgeous bride, the proud father, the nervous groom, the overly flirty groomsman, the kooky uncle or the overly talkative grandma. I love meeting these people and hearing their stories.
It's funny because not too long ago I was at a dinner party and someone asked what kind of photographer I was. I answered with "weddings!" and they replied "oh cool...but what do you really want to do?" and I, confused, replied with "...weddings?" Turns out many people only get into wedding photography to get to where they actually want to be because "who likes wedding photography?!"
But you know what...I do! I love wedding photography and it makes me happy that people think that wedding photography is hard and annoying and a step towards something better because for me it is that 'better', it is home, it is where I want to be always and I hope I can be here for as long as I can.
It's a good feeling knowing what you want to do and realising you're kinda doing it, that you're kinda, almost, sort of there. It's exciting and motivating and it inspires me to keep on pushing forward, to keep on trying, to not give up.
I hope you are the same. I hope you can find something that you're passionate about, even if that is something that no one else cares for, and I hope you get that 'thing' and you make it something great and valuable in life because the truth is that you deserve that. And even if the journey is hard, consistently hard, you deserve to be passionate and to feel alive!
What are you passionate about these days? x
