I barely slept as I kept running the gear list through my head. Somehow I managed to drift off and when my eyes flew open all I could think was this it is, today’s the day. I couldn’t eat, my hands were shaking as I tried to do every day things. Dave drove me downtown and winking said, knock ‘em dead as I closed the car door. My heart was pounding.
But then I walked inside Spirit Spa and there was Megan smiling and radiant on her wedding day. Her warmth and happiness immediately calmed me and suddenly, as I picked up my camera, it felt like the most natural thing in the world.
It’s hard to believe it was two years ago today that I took a step that has utterly transformed my life. Megan and LG saw something in me – something I wasn’t yet able to see in myself – and for that, I am forever grateful. Becoming a full-time photographer has been the single most challenging, exciting and satisfying thing I’ve ever done. Over and over I shake my head and feel humbled that I get to do this… THIS! This amazing thing of capturing these beautiful memories… For my JOB!!
Thank-you Megan and LG, for helping me take that first step. xo.
