It's your thing, do what you wanna do
I can't tell you, who to sock it to
This year marked a number of transitions for me. Long story short, wedding photography was one of two full-time jobs I was pursuing, but I left teaching at an elementary school is Oakland, so that I can dedicate my energy to this work. I got engaged to my best friend. We bought a house. I had surgery for the first time.
I'm so glad to have this job and I'm proud that I get to do it in a way that stays true to my own values and true to the people I photograph. More than ever, I realize that there are always going to be trends, demands and pressures, but that all of that should be secondary to capturing honest photographs. I want my work to capture the beauty that I see in my couples and their loved ones. Taking that perspective with me everytime I go to work, I always feel like I have the best job. To more memories and moments in 2018! Enjoy!
Here are some of my favorite venues of 2017:
Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea.
Just hand me down. Give me a place to be.
So what’s wrong if there happens to be one guy in the world who enjoys trying to understand you?
It's because of you when I'm in bed in the morning that I can wind my spring and tell myself I have to live another good day
