I had to write this post while the tears are still welling up in my eyes. I don’t usually get too personal on here, because, well my writing can never quite capture what it is I’m trying to convey. I like to let the pictures to the talking, so to speak. However, I just posted an image onto Facebook of such an amazing moment between a mother and daughter on her wedding day. As I was taking the pictures, I had tears in my eyes (which happens soooo many times to me throughout a wedding day!) I just knew I was capturing something they would treasure forever. The bride posted this comment:
At times, when I get down, I think that what I do is so trivial. It’s not like I’m saving lives here. Sometimes I question my purpose in this career. However it’s moments like these and comments like the bride (Nikki) left for me that validate what I do. It does matter. I have been given a gift that allows me to capture the most intimate, precious times in peoples lives. Moments they may otherwise forget. Thank you, Nikki, for your kind words and thank you to all of my clients that trust me to capture moments like this for them. I am truly humbled every time someone trusts me with a task so great.
