People tell me that they choose us to be there wedding photographer because they made a real connection with our images. Out photographs tells a story. There is real emotion in the pictures. To bring that feeling to our images, we must first make a connection with you, our clients. Spending time getting to know you and hearing your story fuels us to bring that story to life. Korey and Aany were so authentic in every piece of their wedding day, that capturing their adventure, was one of the easiest connections I’ve ever made. It was impossible not to be pulled in by the peace and unity of their celebration. Of course, the fully loaded taco bar by Seed Sprout Spoon was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever eaten. Cheers.

In the fall, Daisy and I headed out to Cafe Osage. The weather was perfection and the girl even more so. We shopped and talked and laughed. We talked about everything from God, to tattoos, relationships to traveling. She was fully herself, all hand in the hair, optimism and song. Daisy honored me by sharing her dreams, and ideas, her plans for the future. She asked questions and I took photos, laughing with her, answering with limited wisdom. She filled in the blanks on what I forgot about being twenty-one. I took more photos.
By the end I asked Daisy why the 20 somethings, are so comfortable not just in front of the camera, but documenting every coffee, walk and creative snippet on social media? Her honest answer?
“There is a fear of being forgotten. We want to feel validated, that our existence matters. That’s why, I think, my generation loves being a false celebrity. We want to feel like our time here mattered. That is wasn’t waisted.”
Well, you are not alone, Daisy girl. I’m sure that is the plight of man. I’m telling your right here, your existence matters, your story is important and my time was not waisted by spending some life with you.
