Spending an evening with these two was just what I needed to start off my fall season. Why the reasons may be a little different from other sessions I had this summer, it's one I reflect on with an attitude of gratefulness. Now stay with these next few lines because this is something most photographers may not voice on a blog of an engagement session, but I'm facing my fears and laying it all out there. In this industry, I can sometimes get to a point where i'm just pushing a button, running through the motions, drained and unaware that i'm capturing two people in a season unlike any other. Lately, I've had a conviction on my heart to really examine what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. For me, it's so important to be reminded that taking photos is not about the perfect pose or the perfect lighting, but more so about capturing a couple in their most genuine state. The real, the raw, the intimate, that's what i'm about. My desire and heart for my business this year is to break through those cookie cutter moments that we see so often. I'm chasing this passion hard folks, and my prayer is that the Lord will use me to do something radical on my pursuit.
[Meghan & Tanner, I'm so humbled to have spent an evening with you two. You both radiate joy - oh how this just makes me that much more excited for the joy that is going to abound on your wedding day. Thanks for trusting me with something so special, i'm truly honored.]
