From March 2008 – October 2010, I maintained a blog which served as a photojournal of my various wedding, portrait and commercial shoots. Though, I’ve decided to start from scratch with a new and more dynamic blog, I remain proud of the work that I posted on my first blog. If you have been reading my posts and reached this entry, I encourage you to click on the following link to pick up where I left off on at the end of October 2010!
Last year brought about big changes for my humble photography business. I began photographing weddings in 1998 while I was in college but my photography business was always a side business until 2010. I spent a few years as a full time photographer but only while working for other studios. Most recently, I coordinated events for Vanderbilt and loved my job but in 2009 as I juggled 27 weddings and a full time job, I knew that I had to make a choice. I decided that I’d always regret it if I didn’t at least try to go full-time with my business. Fueled by a 12 year referral base and a little extra buzz from 3 bridal shows, I photographed 40 weddings in 6 states last year! Its looking like 2011 will be an even bigger year and I can’t wait to share all of the interesting shoots in this new blog!
While my new blog will continue to serve as a session journal, I plan to feature useful content for anyone who may be planning a wedding or other photography session. I will point out some of the decisions that couples make which have a positive impact on their photography. Virtually everything related to the wedding will have some impact on the photography so this could include anything from the style of lighting to the style of dancing. My goal is to not only post beautiful and interesting photographs but also to include information that will help inform brides.
