Our Adventure Begins Here...

As I sit here watching the Chicago Cubs in game 7 of the World Series (yes, even this Sox fan watched) I cannot help but sit in amazement at the year both the Cubs, and myself have had.  2016 has been filled with many different up's and down's, and is shaping up to end much different than how my family planned.  I was not to go full-time with photography until next spring, but things changed and here we are!  

I have just finished uploading my first wedding with me as the primary shooter.  This was the most exciting, and scariest thing I have ever done, and it turned out GREAT.  When Kathryn reached out to me this summer to inquire about me shooting her small, 40 person backyard wedding I initially declined her offer.  I told her that I would be more than happy to provide her engagement photos (which is how she came across my portrait work in the first place), but that I had never shot a wedding on my own and I felt a day this important should be left to someone with more experience.  She wasn't having any of that!  She loved my work, and knew it would fit really well with her and her fiance's style and with what they were looking for in the pictures that would capture their most special of days.  I am proud to say that it was a life changing experience, for the positive.  Most photographers I have known in the almost ten years I have been doing this either love weddings, or hate them, and I was nervous how I would feel but I was hooked instantly.  It was such a special thing to be a part of, and I got to really show off my documentary style in several of the photos, and I cannot wait to do my next!

As I was typing this up, I got a call to book my first Sweet 16 Party, so truly 2016 is a year of firsts, let's hope the Cubs get this World Series wrapped up, and we all enjoy a fruitful, and successful 2017!  Our adventure begins here.... Our Adventure Begins Here....
