Coming up on our Fourth Anniversary

This #thankfultuesday, I want to give thanks to my husband and children for their constant love and encouragement, and for putting up with my doubt while on this journey of owning my own photography business.

Four years ago today, I photographed my first wedding. We hadn't launched our photography business, but friends knew I had deep passion for photography and wanted to get more involved. Our daughter's preschool teacher asked me if I would be interested in photographing her brother's wedding, which was going to be small, and quite unique. Umm, yes, please!

As with all photos, I remember the smell in the air on that September morning, I remember what I was wearing, and the nervousness and excitement I felt as I got ready and drove to the wedding. I had visited the venue four times, just to make sure I knew everything about it, had my lighting right, and to meet the staff. I will never forget the feeling I got when the event planner said, "oh, you're the wedding photographer." I honestly looked around to see if there was someone else standing behind me because, surely, she wasn't talking to me.
