this wedding is my 50th!
i am blown away that this little pipe dream has become a reality. all i wanted 50 weddings ago was a few brides every now and then, a few destination weddings and to earn enough to afford the best equipment money can buy to document my growing family with. what i have been given is much greater. i have been entrusted with documenting the most important day of people’s lives. i get to hang out with people like chiselle and jevon while they laugh and love and celebrate and take me along for the ride. i get to be creative and seek out the beauty in life as a job. i get to sit behind a desk and edit. wait, no. that part is a bit of a drag.
i had been looking forward to my 50th for a while. i couldn’t have asked for a better couple or a more brilliant wedding. chiselle could not stop laughing if she tried. all day her smile lit up her face in the kind of contagious grin that makes the whole room seem lighter, funner, more alive. jevon is the perfect match to her cheery demeanour, equally ready with a cheeky laugh. all i had to do was get them together and they would collapse into giggles over some inside joke.
i can only hope my next 50 weddings will be as wonderful as this one.
