I remember this day so vividly it’s amazing. It was not a good day!!! For some odd reason I was not happy about this wedding and being in this wedding. I remember my mom trying to get us both ready and I just wasn’t happy. She called her DJ friend who was on duty and had him play my favorite song–Seasons in the Sun–which he did. Yes, I know now it is quite a morbid tune BUT as a kid and you can sing “seasons in the sun” it is quite fun! So anyway on to the story. I don’t recall the ceremony but do remember the reception and just being a little pissy UNTIL I was given this camera. I remember the moment vividly and fortunately someone was there to take a photograph of me. Now of course there is the ahem, cute factor going on here. The point however is I guess I was just meant to be a wedding photographer! The road I took was quite winding and the road less traveled to be sure but I did find my destiny. I love just waking up every day knowing I’m going to photograph something…anything!
So I guess it just goes to show that some things are innate to us but not always obvious. Thankfully, I found the right road eventually. No regrets at all!
