This is a post I’ve waited close to 5 years to write. As long and as hard as the wait has been, the end result is that much more rewarding.
When I first started shooting weddings it didn’t take me long to realize 2 things:
1. I loved shooting weddings.
2. I hated shooting weddings.
It seemed like every other week I would bounce from one end of the spectrum to the other. Little by little I was able to pinpoint my feelings and figure out exactly what was causing me to love or hate each particular weekend. The more the day was about THE WEDDING, the less I seemed to enjoy it. The more the day was about the marriage, the more I left with a full heart. Little by little, year by year, I’ve been able to find my voice, and find the type of couples that I want to work with. This site is the culmination of that process.
There are 3.6 billion wedding photographers in Texas alone. 3.5 billion of them take fantastic images so taking a great photo is not enough. I’m not looking for couples who only want great images. I’m looking for couples who want an honest portrayal of who they are. I’m looking for couples who are authentic and real about what their wedding day can be. I’m looking for couples who want great marriages. The best way for me to find those couples is by modeling that behavior. So finally, after all this time, I have a site that is an honest reflection of myself and what working with me is like. You are not going to find another site like this anywhere. Second Street Creative did an AMAZING job building it and I can’t say enough good things about Ryan. Thank you so much for making this idea a reality.
This is who I am. If you think you might want me at your wedding, spend 10 minutes on this site and you’ll know. And, if you decide we are not a great fit that’s ok. I’ll even help you find a photographer that is. ;)
So go on, take a look around. There are fun little surprises and things to be found. It looks different on a computer, tablet, or phone so why not try all three? My favorite part may be the Mug Machine section under Info or the super cute kids on the Bio page.
One last note. The past 2 weeks leading up to this site launch have been packed full of 17 hour days. You would not be viewing it were it not for the limitless hours Danielle invests in our family. Thank you so much for your love and support. You are more amazing today than the day we were married and I’ll never feel like I deserve you.
P.S. If you want a chance to win a 2 night stay at a bed & breakfast, here’s what you gotta do.
1. Leave a comment below.
2. Post something on your Facebook telling folks to come take a look around the site.
(You must do both things to be entered to win.)
Here’s a little suggestion on what you could say:
AlexM, my best internet friend and killer photographer, just launched a new site. You should go take a look at it’s amazingness.
I’ll be selecting the winner at random by the end of the week.
