Sometimes things happen a lot faster than you think they might.
I am grateful for sure. My couples have found me in so many ways and offered to share things with me that I won’t ever be able to thank them for. I have spent the past few months crying and laughing with them, traveling from one corner of the country to the other and doing my best to bear witness to their most important day with just a few cameras and what I can see in my head.
I’ve been from New York to Hawaii and back home, and my couples and their families let me into their lives for a few hours or a few days at a time. I have at least a dozen weddings I need to share here, but getting to all of them will take some time. I am leaving Friday for Charleston, SC to shoot with my new friend Tec. And there’s no slowing down until later next month.
So once in a while, when I have a few hours or a few days, I try to take photos that are just for myself. No plan or intentions, no schedules, timelines or specific purpose. I just walk wherever I am. Sometimes for a few minutes, often times for a few hours. I record what I see. Not because I am tired of photographing weddings, but because I love it so much. And I really believe that taking the time to take photos for myself allows me to slow down and do a better job for my couples.
I promise to get back to posting wedding related photos tomorrow, but for now here are a few of my days in the Outer Banks in North Carolina and in Cape Cod Massachusetts.
If you’re curious everything was shot on a Polaroid Spectra and Polaroid 600SE.
