OH 2018, you will forever hold a special place in my heart. A little over 5 years ago, I picked up a camera for the first time ever with no interest or intention of ever doing anything with it other than just having a little fun. The more I dove into it, however, the more I fell in love with it because it allowed me to connect with others in a way that my other endeavors never did. So a couple of years later, I started Wayfarer Photography, but still with some hesitance because I always feared that if I dove into it 100%, I would get to a place where it became hard to maintain a zeal and passion for it. However, the more time went on, the more people I connected with, the more friendships I developed, and the more memories I documented, my love for it only continued to grow, which brings me to 2018.
“Ever wish weddings came with a user manual? I know I sure did when my wife and I were planning ours 5 years ago. Wedding's are funny in that there's so much pressure and expectation for this monumental day to be perfect and run smoothly, and yet, we get one chance to get it right (often without prior experience or knowledge of how to make that happen).”
One of my favorite moments in every session is the response to the first thing I tell everyone I've shot with since day 1: "You don't have to think AT ALL on this shoot. I will guide you on where to look, what to do, what expression to make, where to put your hands, EVERYTHING. If I see any loose hairs, wardrobe malfunction, ANYTHING, I will fix it all for you. I want everyone I shoot with to have fun and people can only do that if they don't have to think so LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!"
