Hello friends, and happy Saturday! Jem and I are in the office this afternoon working on a few projects at once. What else is new! Today we're trying to put some finishing touches on creating a intro slide to our YouTube channel. It's always the little details that take the most time, isn't it? While I wait for my editing software to load, I figured now is the perfect time to share a little sneak peek! Once we add sound, voila! We have an intro. Do you have a favorite? Jem like the fade in, I like the script. Give us a comment below with your vote and stay tuned to see which gets the pick in our next vid!
Have you ever sat down and thought about what your ideal day is? Maybe it takes place under an umbrella at a white sandy beach. Or near a waterfall on a breezy fall afternoon. I'm willing to bet most of us at one point in time or another have considered what our next quick getaway would be. But have you ever considered what an ideal day would look like at the office? No, maybe it doesn't have the same ring to it, but I've found it's incredibly important to put that same day-dreamy thought towards your ideal work day, as it is your ideal vacation.
Photography in and of itself is a time capsule. To every image we, at that specific moment, wish to remember. Whether it's summer vacation, a decorative design on the side of a gas station, or the moments when you can actually see love in someone's eyes.
Yesterday I found myself in the front seat of a moving truck beside my mom. I am lucky to have adopted her adventurous and spontaneous spirit. When she asked me to help her make the drive to her new home, what else could I shout but 'yes of course!'
In between our seats, stuffed next to a box of Triscuits, sunglasses, and some cold brew sits my camera. Loaded with a roll memories in the making. My one of many time capsules.
My job is beyond making couples laugh or clicking a button. My job is to tell stories. Imperfect, beautiful, messy, wonderful, stories. I will never have any doubt that my passion and my careers perfectly align.
The greatest part about being an engagement photographer is easily the adventures you get to share with your clients. Especially here in Oregon! With a week's notice, Jem and I changed our coastal plans to make a trip to Bend to share one of these said adventures with Tierney and Mark. How lucky are we that we have so many options! So we packed our bags and drove down to visit Smith Rock State Park for the first time. One of the top locations on my "Must Shoot" list.
