Thankful For | Amazing People

Normally I would save this Thankful post for Friday but I’m just bursting to thank some certain people…

This past weekend Paul and I attended a benefit for one of our past bride and groom’s nephew. It was amazing to see how many people were there for this little boy and their family and I was so glad to be a part of it (I even won a lovely wine basket!).

While we were there, we ran into past brides and grooms, new brides and grooms, old friends, and new friends. As Paul and I mingled with all of these wonderful people, I remembered how much I missed seeing them! Seeing them outside of weddings and work was such a treat for me and made me realize why I love photographing weddings. I am so blessed to have worked with the people I have worked with throughout this past year and a half and I am so very thankful for each one of them and for the friendships that have been built. I had parents, friends, sisters, etc. come up to me and thank me for their son/daughter/friend/sister/brother’s wedding photos – what an unbelievable feeling! It makes me realize that what I do is not just an 8-5 job and that I don’t only build relationships with just my brides and grooms.

I don’t think I say it enough so here’s a couple shout-outs to my amazing clients:

-To my brides and grooms (past and new), thank you somuch for having me be a part of your wedding experience – you have no idea how honored I am to have the opportunity to work with you, get to know you, and be a part of one of the biggest days of your lives! You have (and are) putting your trust in me to be able to tell the story of your amazing day and I am so thankful beyond words for that.

-To my past brides and grooms, thank you so, so, so much for believing in me when I first began this crazy journey. When some of you booked me all I had to show you were some photos of my nephew and my family. I never dreamed that a small idea in my head would turn into what it is now. It sounds corny, but if it hadn’t been for you, I would not be where I am today in my dream career. Your referrals, your kind words, everything, has helped me grow my business and I am just truly blessed to know you.

Big hugs to all of you!! :) :)
