I’m feeling a bit nostalgic this afternoon: ten years ago today, I was shooting my very first wedding as a professional photographer.
Melanie and Roman had hired me to photograph their sweet, low-key 3-hour celebration at a small winery. I remember feeling thrilled, a little bit terrified, and utterly smitten with my brand-new profession.
Ten years on, the thrill remains. I get butterflies while packing my camera bag. I still get a bit teary at ceremonies. I feel incredibly lucky to have built a career doing something I love so much.
Thank you to all of my lovely clients and their families, and especially to Melanie and Roman for taking a chance on a rookie.
Here’s to the next ten!
