Sunday, September 20, 2015  |  Wedding
I'm wrapping up my 10th year in business. It's hard to believe that what started out as a creative hobby turned into becoming a wedding photographer! And to be honest... Something I never wanted to be! When I was just 25 years old I needed to do something that gave me a creative outlet so I picked up a film camera hoping to photograph commercial fisherman in Florida. My father was part of a long line of commercial fisherman and I knew it was a dying industry so I just hoped to capture it for myself. That desire turned into this business which has taken me completely by surprise and still to this day creatively fulfills me. Recently I was speaking to a group of photographers and someone asked me how I keep from burning out. I would be lying if I said that in the past I didn't feel empty at times but 2015 has brought new life to my creative tank and I feel like I'm shooting better than ever.  
In the years past I have always looked for the moments. But this year was REALLY about the moments. I've learned the difference between an image that appears to be a moment and an image that is truly capturing a moment between two people. Weddings still excite me because they are about more than two people in love but also about all of the relationships that surround those two people. And that is what is driving me now. I've become passionate about understanding the relationships that make up a wedding day before I even begin photographing the wedding. Understanding these important people helps me to anticipate the smallest glance, emotion and exchange. After 10 years in this business it's a great feeling to be more excited than ever before about this incredible job!  
Below are some of my favorite images I've taken over the years. It's been a really great experience!
