Engagement Session | Stone Quarry Hill Art Park | Cazenovia, NY
Emily and I go way back.
She hired me for the first time in 2012.
Since then, we have done multiple sessions together.
She has been one of my biggest supporters
since, close to the beginning.
On my website's contact form for this session,
under things you want me to know
she put down "you're only my favorite."
And when we got done shooting for the day
she told me how much she loves everything I do.
That she can't even look at any other photographer's work
without comparing it to mine.
I'm going to tell you a secret, so pay attention
(are you ready?)
here it is...
Art, is, subjective.
There it is. Not everyone loves the same things.
Not everyone looks at my work
and thinks it's good.
And that is OKAY!
I believe there is a photographer out there for everyone.
Someone to suit everyone's taste, budget and personality.
But as an artist, when you do find those clients,
the ones who appreciate you.
And I do mean YOU.
I could say "appreciate your work",
but so much of me is tied up with my work.
I give a lot to this job.
Time, energy, creativity, finances.
I love it and it's exhausting.
It fulfills me and it's emptying.
It fuels me and it depletes me.
There are times I can't look at another photographer's work without comparing it to mine either.
Those were her words, but they're my words, too.
There's so much buzzing around us constantly,
it gets easy to not feel good enough.
I get down, on myself and my work,
In those moments, all I need is just that little nudge
to remind me of the love, the fulfillment.
That's the kind of person Emily is.
She lets you know how much she appreciates what you do.
And she's the kind of person
that you only wish good things for.
I've seen her life change over the years
and I can honestly say
I am absolutely overjoyed to see her happy with Chuck.
He is very kind and considerate.
I hope her future with him
is as bright and lovely as she is.
Congratulations to this thoughtful pair!
I am rooting for you and your new life together!!
And thank you for trusting me to document your love story.
