An artist has to find a way to eat in order to clearly think through his/her art. In the early days of photography, this artist had to pay his bills and doing weddings was the main way to fund the art of photography.
Any and all blog posts related to events in and around a wedding will be aggregated here. Celebration of love through photos, poetry, and storytelling happens sporadically on the blog. For those looking exclusively for such joyous posts, you’re welcome to bookmark this page and check as often as you’d like.
The wedding photography career was short lived, but was a serious staple of my creative journey. When my children get a bit older and more independent, the hope is to return to this competitive form of photography. It’s a ton of fun. Many great memories.
Instead of rehashing these glorious early days now… a collection of such posts lives below for your reading pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to visit and leaving a comment.
Long may wedded bliss continue to live.
