It's already end of March 2018 and this blog has not been updated in what feels like 100 years ... so, to recap:
- My handsome boyfriend proposed and we got engaged! HOORAY!
- We got married in November 2017! HIP HIP HOORAY!
There are so many stories, images and gold nuggets of magic I can't wait to share in the weeks and months to come. But for now, I will say this:
I am no longer going to photograph weddings.
Is that a mic drop? I'm not quite sure, but one thing I do know: I need to make some space, both in my life and in my career. I want to focus on the things I LOVE ENDLESSLY and the things I thrive in. For 2018 and beyond, these are working with my bar & bat mitzvah clients and the families who I have worked with for years and years (and new ones too!)
If I am spread too thin, photographing any and every job that comes my way, my attention is drawn less and less from the clients who have been with me from the start and the ones who continue to choose me as their family photographer. Cultivating those relationships (and the referrals they send my way) matters most to me.
If this bums you out: do not fear! My amazing friend, mentor and photographer of weddings Bernadette Fox is the gal you need to call. (Like right now, what are you waiting for, newly engaged people of the world?!)
Luis and I trusted her and her associate Kim with our day and they BLEW IT OUT OF THE WATER. I cry every time I see one of the images from our engagement and wedding day. I get butterflies when I see how handsome my husband looked that day (and okay, every day because I MARRIED UP). With little to no direction, they did everything I asked and everything I didn't or forgot to ask. We felt cared for and loved abundantly.
In an effort to maintain a balance between business, personal and the myriad of things in between, Luis and I have decided to not share the bulk of our wedding photos with the world. I will share with you the blog that Bernadette wrote and the images she shared there, but the rest? They are our story. It feels personal and vulnerable to share the thousands of images and videos from Bernadette PLUS our families and friends that we have from this day. We appreciate your love, support and understanding <3
Stay tuned as I navigate marriage, business, lifestyle changes and choices, a new job and what comes next! Oh and of course, your quarterly mini session date announcements :)
