My first ever wedding was in 2007. I hit my stride in 2012 when I brought on Sadie, and together we peaked in 2014. In 2016 we moved out of state, a move that signaled a time for change.
Weddings are one of those things that every aspiring photographer dabbles in. Whether you’re considering it your main gig or a supplementary income, they’re hard to avoid. My first ever wedding (conveniently omitted from this post) was a springboard for a decade-long career.
Below I collected a single photo from many of the weddings I’ve shot. Some are missing out of respect for the couple, or some for other more personal reasons. At the end of the day, this is a collection of photos for me. If your wedding is below, and you’re confused by the photo I picked, read on.
Every wedding I ever shot became a part of me. I was covering your stories, but I was doing it for selfish reasons too. They meant something to me. Every wedding taught me something new. I brought home more thousands of images from each wedding, I brought home knowledge which I’d use on my next wedding. The images below all indicate something special to me. Maybe a lesson learned, maybe a moment I’ll remember forever, probably both. I could tell you an anecdote about every last one, and for most of them I could probably tell you exactly what was going through my mind when I took the photo.
Here’s to not knowing where the next decade will take us.
Here’s to each and every person who made this life possible.
Here’s to a fraction of a percent of 11 years of my career.
