More Lessons From My First Four Years As A Wedding Photographer

Last week, I did an update to a previous post that I made four years ago right after my first year as a wedding photographer.

Vancouver, WA Wedding | Kelsey & Tyler

Kelsey’s Grandfather pulled me aside with tears in his eyes. He was wearing sunglasses, but you could see the glossiness of tears through the tint. Kelsey grew up coming to this house and telling him that she was going to get married there. Under that tree shaped like a heart in his field.

And that is precisely what she did.
