Wedding Reflections – Looking back and looking forward to the weddings yet to shoot

It’s always around this time of year where I find myself in the thick of planning for the upcoming wedding season yet reflecting back on the weddings that have already settled into my memories and my hard drives. I know I’ve said it before, but I really do feel so incredibly lucky that so many wonderful people have asked me to be part of their special day and bear witness to such a significant moment in their lives. The countless hours of location scouting, emails, phone calls, planning, dreaming blend with the hours on the road, airplanes, hotel rooms and everything else that come together as part of the wedding shoot. Wedding days are like Christmas morning for me – so many surprises, emotions, and unexpected gifts to open, opportunities, moments, tears of happiness, a few nerves, and only one chance to capture it. With each passing year I think more about the importance of capturing the raw essence of the day, and less about shots missed, trying to plan too much, and really just letting the day guide me. With this as my foundation I move forward, with a whole bunch of amazing stories yet to be told in the weeks and months to come, but for now I look back at some of the experiences that got me to today.
