One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is simply the fact that I get to attend so many different types of weddings. Along with all of the traveling I do – the many variations of ‘wedding’ is one of the reasons I’m never bored – and why every wedding is both a challenge and honestly still very entertaining to me.
This year so far I’ve photographed engagement sessions in San Francisco, weddings in the Bahamas, Arizona and of course here in Atlanta – and even flying up to Chicago and down again for back to back weddings. Last year’s weddings included stops in New York, Maine, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, California, Alabama, and New Jersey.
This year we’re still headed to Connecticut, back to California, back to Arizona, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan (Three times!), Nebraska, Virginia,and Colorado. And that’s just what we have so far. There’s still so much year left and somehow, we’re still getting booked for 2012.
Even though I’m not likely to say this to your face, or act like I get choked up – weddings are one of the few things that hit me hard, and that do get me choked up. Because you know what? Weddings are badass. All that love and emotion flying around and filling the air – just makes me want to hide behind my camera rig. It’s powerful stuff and when I think about how many couples have decided that I should be there for them; that I should be the one to photograph such an important and meaningful celebration – well – that’s probably the main reason we work so hard while we’re photographing a wedding. I just can’t F*ck it up. Ever. And you know – that’s alright.
Sarah is the awesome artist behind The Small Object. Just like us – she and Dawn are regulars at the Indie Craft Experience and over the past few years we’ve been fortunate to know them both.
