I have no problem admitting it. When the lights go down low and I've got my nacho cheese in one hand and popcorn in the other I know I'm going to cry. At the first sign of love, be it in the beginning, middle, or end, I know I'm going to cry. I know that and I come prepared with tissue or rather napkins from the concession stand.
I'm a hopeless romantic. Like Notebook romantic. No, like Moulin Rouge romantic. Well, like all-the-chick-flicks-ever-combined romantic. And I cry. I cry because two people are in love and it's just so damn beautiful. I also cry when love is lost or never found. Because love is so. damn. beautiful.
Which brings me to my point. When I first began this journey in photography I let my inexperience get the better of me. I let it keep me from love. From photographing the wonderful romantic world of white dress, bouquets, bowties, and YMCA-ing on the dance floor.
Now that I have shot my own weddings and have second shot as well, I have realized that photographing weddings is my first row seat at love, romance and tear filled vows. Did I mention the tears are mine?
And everytime I get to be apart of such a wonderful romantic tear filled day, I get warm and fuzzy inside.
Because on these days,
Love is found.
Happy Thursday :)
