Time is a funny thing. Some days I review past jobs and envy my own creativity. It’s also easy to look back and have an overly critical view of your work, forgetting to take into account the learning curve. Sometimes it gives me additional perspective, and other times I find myself idealizing the past… the “good ole days syndrome.” I’ve decided it would be fun to go back through weddings past and start blogging them, like I do now. I anticipate experiencing all of the responses above, and maybe some new ones… who knows. It’s a learning exercise for myself, hoping to hone storytelling skills, look for images that are repeated too often, to just have a better awareness of what I do at weddings. Just some real talk folks. New Year, new outlook. That’s the plan 🙂

I love Tiffany and McKenzie’s wedding at the Scottish Rite Center in Portland. Seeing as how they are both artists, they went to great lengths to make their day unique, and just the way they wanted it… which is always the best. The hair, the makeup, the clothes, the music McKenzie composed for the wedding, even the way the ceremony was structured… everything was uniquely “them.” This includes the 5 and a half hours of portraits we did the day of, which any of you who know me get how much of a dream that is for me, personally. Enjoy their day, in all its unique glory.
