The Cure for Boredom Is Curiosity. There Is No Cure for Curiosity
– Dorothy Parker
I’ve been a full time wedding photographer for a decade. 10 years so far of documenting happy moments and celebrations.
In that time I’ve had my shoes mistakenly abducted from a wedding, sewed a bridesmaid into her dress when the zipper failed, tied dozens of bow ties and one cravat, photographed the children of couples whose weddings I’ve photographed, cried a little, and laughed a great deal.
I feel so lucky to work with such awesome couples and families.
And I have never once been bored.
Every wedding I shoot, every family that I photograph, every image that I edit, has to be a little better than the one before. Sometimes that feels like a burden, but most of the time it feels like a challenge.
Because in those 10 years I have only had one client along for every photoshoot, and that client is me. I need to stay curious and to stay challenged so that I don’t just do what works; I have to try new things.
All of which is to say, 2018 is gonna be awesome. 2019 even better.
Now back to my editing cave and an excellent spring.
