I just found out that I have received the Knot Best of Weddings for the 3rd year in a row and 4th altogether for 2014. Thank you so much to all my 2013 brides and grooms. Without your reviews this would not be possible. As I approach my 10th year as a wedding photographer and almost 300 weddings, I have realized that it’s been such a blessing to be able to do what I love and be around couples on the happiest day of their lives. Sometimes on moments like this, receiving recognition, it is easy to look at my work and get proud. However, I know that each wedding day is a gift from God not just to the couple, but for me especially, since I’m probably just as nervous, or even more nervous than the bride/groom, hoping to shoot well and serve my clients well. As I reflect back on my career, I’m very thankful for the award, for the growth that I’ve had as a person and as a photographer, and the grace that God’s given, because longevity in this career is not the norm.
