I've said it before but some times I feel like I can't say it enough. I have the best clients. I show up at weddings, usually only knowing the bride and groom, and maybe their parents, if they joined them at their consultation. I leave feeling like I'm part of their family. Sam and Stosh's Stonewall Golf and Country Club was no different.
Fresh off of maternity leave, I had been looking forward to shooting their wedding for months. But, I'll be honest. In my months off with my new baby, I started questioning where I was at in my career. Were weddings really something I wanted to continue with? Should I just shoot the remainder of weddings I had booked and throw in the towel? Don't get me wrong, I never faltered in my love for my camera or photography. But, I felt like it was becoming impossible (and exhausting) to compete in an over-saturated market. Then I shot Samantha and Stosh's wedding. And I remembered why I love this so much. They reminded me why it's worth the competition and late nights of editing. Looking back now, I realize, I needed their wedding. I left that night with a full heart, overflowing with inspiration and new ideas and looking forward to the future of HJP. For that, Sam and Stosh, I thank you! Enjoy a little preview of your beautiful day and thank you SO much for choosing me to be a part of it!!
Sam, your hair! I die, seriously. You are too gorgeous!!
I love that Stosh wrote Samantha a little note on a guest check from the bar!
Husband and wife!!!
