I have been blessed with some great weddings over the past 11 years, but it’s time to set this gig aside for a while. Sometimes I forget how much work and effort goes into photographing a wedding — planning and preparation, the day of the wedding, the hours of post-production, the album design, etc. When I do something, I put everything I have into it, and I can honestly say that I put my best effort into every single wedding I photographed.
The turning point for me in making this decision was knowing that I could be at every one of my son’s Saturday soccer games this fall. It was knowing that I would have time to work on some personal projects that I are on my to-do list. It was knowing that I could spend more time with my family and friends.
Photography is as much a part of me as by love of riding a bike — instead of brides and grooms, I’ll be chasing kids and dogs and whatever else catches my eye.
