I want to photograph weddings. It’s my biggest dream. And right now, I’m right at the start of this dream. I believe achieving your dreams isn’t something that just happens. It’s a long, continuous process. For me, it feels like it is an endless book. It will have highlights and unexpected downs, so many stories and characters. Every time I have my camera in my hands, all the amazingly different people I meet, all my successes and learning curves will all form chapters within this dream book. Each chapter is unique, some not finished for ages, some chapters will be just a few moments. And I know to appreciate every part, because each of these chapters helps me to get to where I want to be, it leads me to turn the page, wanting more.
So, over a year ago, this dream was just that, a dream. A few scribbles in an almost empty book. I was photographing portraits, families, couples, my friends and family.

Then Dan proposed. Alecia said yes. They contacted me. A wedding was being planned. And they were interested in having me capture their day. Well. I didn’t get my hopes up. I had no wedding portfolio, no wedding experience.

They booked me anyway.

Since then, I’ve done photography workshops, been second shooter for other photographers and photographed my own weddings. However, blogging this wedding feels like finishing that very first chapter. And so I thank them. For believing in me. For seeing my potential. A gift to me that is so invaluable.

So I’m blogging a very special day. For Alecia and Dan. Best friends. So clearly in love. For their friends and family. A very significant chapter in each of their books. And of course, special to me, as it’s the beginning chapter of my dream book.

Here it is. Here is a chapter.
