Unlike a lot of other photographers, I didn’t develop a passion for photography until I was an adult. In fact, the only photos I really took before I started my business with my wife, Kelsey, were of my parents on their old digital Kodak point-and-shoot on family vacations. But that all changed after I got engaged.
After I proposed and wedding planning was in full swing, my wife asked me to help her select our wedding photographer. At first I was overwhelmed by the amount of photographers that were out there, but after looking at several photographers’ websites, I started to figure out what kind of style I liked. I really liked candid shots, but I also liked posed “artsy” shots. So after a week or so of looking at different photographers’ work, my wife and I selected on our photographers for our wedding day. We had a blast on our engagement session and our photographers were fun to hang out with on our wedding day and they seemed to be having a great time themselves.
After the wedding was over, and we received our wedding photos, I told my wife I wanted to buy a camera and she said “Fine, but you’re going to have to get some gigs to pay for it.” Since I was pretty familiar with wedding photos, I thought I would try my hand at wedding photography. I had no “formal” training, but I learned the basics online and experimented with my camera as often as I could. I was invited to second shoot for a friend’s wedding, and after that, I was hooked. My wife helped me out when she wasn’t doing her “maid-of-honor” duties and she had a great time too. She told me she wanted to buy a camera of her own and I told her “sure, as long as you get some gigs to pay for it.” We’ve been shooting weddings together ever since.
