Wow. It’s been quite some time since the last time I checked in here and I have somewhat of a serious update. I thought a lot about how to word this post because it’s pretty personal but I believe there’s no better way than just to be honest and upfront about it. So here we go.
For the remainder of 2014, I will not be booking any weddings and the reason is that Jeff and I are planning to grow our family! It was very difficult for me to turn away weddings as I have worked very hard to make my wedding photography dreams come true and it really is something I love. However, at the end of the day, my wedding photography is absolutely about my clients – preserving memories from one of the most important days of their lives. I am entrusted with this responsibility and I cannot imagine letting anyone down in that front. There should be no compromise on my performance for any reason. I keep rehearsing in my mind – how could I possibly tell a client that I can’t make it to their wedding and have to send a substitute or have to ask them to switch to another photographer – I just can’t. It’s not fair to them. All of these reasons are why I decided to take 2014 off from the wedding scene. I really appreciate and am so thankful for all your support in the past and hopefully you will re-embrace me with open arms when I am ready to come back in hopefully 2015!
On another note, I am still going to continue to book other types of photo shoots that are more flexible in terms of dates (What? Did you really think I would let my camera collect dust?). This could be (and not exclusive to)
- Lifestyle shoots (let me capture a day in the life of YOU!)
- Family shoots
So there. It’s now out in the open! I always feel that honesty is the best policy and I hope we can keep the conversation going regardless of what happens. I will also continue to post on this blog on any updates in my photography adventures, life stories as well as some wedding highlights from the previous years – I have so many gorgeous weddings to share still!
Again, thank you all for listening!
