Let Your Dreams...
I'm sitting at the Starbucks on Wedington in Fayetteville right now working on images from yesterday's wedding. I just looked over above the baristas and saw a sign that says:
"let your dreams take you places"
I've said this so much over my career as a wedding photographer who is fortunate enough to travel for work: I'm so blessed to be able to photograph love all over the world. Just think about the words in that sentence:
"photograph love all over the world" <<< That truly is a blessing.
Finding something I have a passion for and putting out art that couples respect enough to say, "We want YOU with US on OUR WEDDING DAY" --- it's humbling and wonderful.
10 years ago, I was a school teacher. I loved impacting students lives, but I knew in my heart that I would never be happy until I was able to create, travel, and be an artist full time. It was SCARY leaving the comfort of a guaranteed paycheck, moving states, and diving in to the unknown. But I wanted my dreams to take me places MORE than the level of my fear. I think that made the difference in my life.
