Hello, photographer not photographing weddings! That was the voice in my head this morning after I got up.
Wednesday is when I usually start thinking about photographing the next wedding. I clean my cameras and lenses. I make sure I have enough batteries for the speedlights and re-organize my bags. I also check-in with my bride and groom to make sure everything is on schedule. But lately, well more like months now, Wednesday is just another day.
Of course, I still take photographs every day and that helps my mood and sanity but today I am mad, angry, and frustrated. I love photographing weddings. I live for it and I want life to go back to normal.
Photographing Weddings is My Passion
I am a wedding photographer, that is what I love to do, that is where my heart dwells.
Of course, I still talk to clients about weddings. and I work on my wedding photography website but I am not photographing weddings. I know we are all in the same boat, and yes the entire wedding industry is hurting. Clients are hurting. I can hear it in their voice. Month and month of planning, making arrangements, and saving money are down the drain.
Resolving Emotional Blockage
This is difficult for everyone. I know you didn’t come to my website and read my blog to hear me rant about my emotional difficulties. Yet. before I can write about more positives things I have to write these feelings down. I want to remember what it feels like today at this moment and then move on and refocus my energy. So I can make space to dream about photographing weddings without feeling anxious and sad.
Paying to Attention to Other Things
I am very fortunate that the tool that affords me a living also affords me personal pleasure. The joy of photographing weddings flows over into my personal life as well.
This year more than any other year in the past I paid attention to my garden. I watched and document what was happening. I photographed the roses blossoming as well as the spinach emerging from the ground. I sat in front of flowers waiting for bees to come and pollinate. I watched the light move across the garden and thought about the precise moment to take a photograph. I went to the beach to photograph the sun rising and photographed my dog being chased by a wave.
Making Good Use of Time
Usually, from early spring to late autumn I am too busy editing wedding photos during the week. It leaves not much time to travel much and explore my surroundings and take photographs. I have hundreds of pictures of the beach and the woods. Most of them taken during the winter month, but hardly any taken during this time of year. I can feel myself growing as a photographer and as an artist. Like it or not I have this time to explore my creativity.
Yet, what I want more than anything else is to photograph weddings and dwell in the light of love and happiness.
Getting Back to Photographing Weddings
Below are some of my pictures that I have taken this spring and summer, but I can’t wait to get to photographing weddings.
