Every once in a while I need a reminder of the reasons that I do what I do. Of course, I do what I do because I love photographing weddings and I love seeing people in love and ready to commit their lives to one another. God has blessed me so much with what I really believe is the greatest job in the world, and I am so thankful that I get to do what I love every day.
Over the past few weeks, I have been getting a little reminder of another reason that I love being a wedding photographer. Everytime I log onto Facebook I see a little status update letting me know who has changed their profile picture. Nothing makes me happier then to look through those little thumbnails and recognize photos that I have taken at engagement sessions and weddings. It makes me smile everytime I see it. I remember the thrill of putting my own wedding photos on Facebook for friends to see and the joy of my mom and sisters with Jeremy and I huddled around a laptop looking at our wedding photos for the first time.
I am a wedding photographer because I love love, and because I want others to feel the joy I felt the first time I looked through our wedding photos. Thank you to all of my clients…I am honored that you have allowed me to be a part of your wedding day…I do what I do because of you.
