Wedding Season 2021

Sep

14

Wedding Season 2021 has been an odd one.

It’s been “busy” in a way I can’t describe. It’s been…discovering the strength of The Studio independent from marketing efforts due to six years of PUSHING every day. I’ve been figuring out nomadic life and preparing it for our second winter on the road. I’ve been focusing on investing and bulking other streams of income.

I think all “non-essential” companies went through a bit of an identity crisis in 2020 and that’s not something we’ll bounce back from over night. I’m here. We’re happily scheduling the right couples for The Studio. I’m prioritizing long time acquaintances, return clients, family, and friends to be gentle on my soul. A new Studio routine will manifest itself because it’s such a huge part of who I am at this point.

However, I’m not rushing the investment after experiencing what we all went through. The Studio is alive and well. We can’t say the same for our world. I feel like I’ve been burnt by a best friend who I’m still wondering if they’ll spit in my face again. I don’t trust the world not to lock down again.

The studio is a beautiful mess of floral arrangement fragments, prints & reprints, batteries, disheveled backdrops, legos to keep the kids busy, half drunk coffee mugs, and dirty champagne glasses.

This week, we prep the studio to close out wedding season. The walls become a pace of cozy heater mornings, books, journaling, and online classes. The world is weird but we’re still taking it hour by hour. My future looks like photojournalism in a war zone, hermit family action shots, or weddings for the NFL. Who knows. You can count on a camera (or two) on these hips either way.

We’re planning to leave Washington for most of the fall/winter months. Going to check out Nevada, California, and Texas probably. We’ll be returning for a few weddings. About one per month. I’ll be accepting bookings around the days we plan to be back for those weddings so reach out to inquire!

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
