why being a photographer is fun, personal

  1. Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity
  2. An agency, such as a person or work of art, that moves the intellect or emotions or prompts action or invention.
  3. Something, such as a sudden creative act or idea, that is inspired.

There are 7 blogs I check daily (I'll share those with you another time). Some for inspiration and some because what comes out of their lens is just brilliance and I want to see it. Some photographers mistake having zero originality for inspiration and that's just not cool. Keeping up with other photographers and their story is necessary to being dedicated to your art....keeping up with them via pen & paper stealing their stuff, isn't. Can you tell I'm kind of passionate about this? Yowzas. Sorry to be all heavy, just needed to say that. Or maybe it's that I wanted to say that. Either way, its said. bam!

I'll discretely segue into the fact that I LOVE when photographers post behind the scenes photos. It just makes my whole week. Seeing them in their element is just so inspiring. One day when I'm rich & famous (kind of like saying never hehe) I'll do this totally awesome behind the scenes video and use a kick-butt song. So yeah. Here's my awesome team that I adore doing what they do best showing you why being a photographer is fun.



1. you can mix business with pleasure.


2. laying in a field of yellow flowers is perfectly acceptable


3. going to the beach is a 'business expense'


4. making art with shoes, rings, flowers, dresses, food...etc. is all part of our saturday


5. you can walk down the aisle as many time as you want.


6. you get to wear handmade things.


7. making people laugh


8. you can kiss your imaginary groom


9. and hold his hand


10. and at the end of the day, know that you created memories that would have been forgotten had you not been there.
