I am soooo excited to be a part of an awesome wedding blog today called The California Wedding Wave! It is so fun to be able to share beautiful weddings, details, and couples with other brides to be! Being featured is one of the many reasons that keeps me determined to keep learning the art of photography as it is not only a huge creative outlet for me, but a competitive one too! I love competing with myself as it keeps me energized and gives me a reason to always try and improve. Every wedding, engagement shoot and family session is no different in my mind from preparing for a volleyball or soccer match… I go into every session mentally and physically (and by physically I mean I do 10 push-ups, kinda like a dude before a first date) prepared as I always want a victory…I live for it. I love feeling pressure as much as I hate feeling it…that makes no sense, but it’s what helps me bring my “A” game. Every night before a wedding (here is where the mentally comes in) I close my eyes and envision the whole day…although lately this has lead to nightmares of forgetting gear, shooting with a wooden camera, or showing up as the guest forgetting I was the photographer! Thankfully these are just dreams and the fictional wooden camera has stayed out of the camera bag.
