After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

I was reading the new Jasmine Star Magazine called ‘Exposed’ on our way to Fresno for Christmas and it really spoke to me in so many ways.  A lot of what I took from reading about her personal photography journey and her rise to success was to take risks…to just “jump and a net will appear.”  I think about pursuing photography full time and leaving the 9am-5pm job.  The thought is scary…No TERRIFYING!  It  freaks me out to give up security of a consistent pay check and health insurance…but nothing ventured, nothing gained right?  How strong is that net anyway…cuz what if I decide to jump in my snow shoes with my 5 pound weights in each hand?

But there was something else I took from reading ‘Exposed’, something so powerful and yet so simple!  She said to figure out your personal assets and use them to your advantage in your photography business.  As I read that, I literally gasped and nearly caused Matt to drive off the road.  He thought he was about to run over a puppy the way I reacted.  He is used to it though cuz sometimes if I see an awesome cloud I do that same thing.  Anyway, back to the gasp…I felt like suddenly Jasmine had told me, “HellllooooOOO!  Heather, see that light bulb that has been above your head for the last 2 years?  Grab it!”  I started talking a mile a minute to Matt about this idea I had and we both knew right then and there that this was how I could marry my Passion for Photography and my Love of Fashion!

There is something so VERY special about a bride on her wedding day.  She is drop dead gorgeous, she is elegant and oh so fashionable.  She is graceful and the belle of the ball.  She brings tears to her grooms eyes when his eyes meet hers for the first time.   She stops everyone in their tracks as she walks by.  She is the most important person in the world on her wedding day.  There is nothing I love more to be a witness to that beauty and nothing I love more than preserving it.

I am super nervous right now…eek!  But here it is!  The light bulb idea brought to life.
