If I was being honest and…I’m known for being honest, I would tell you 2017 has been a hard business year. Now, by hard, I don’t mean I’m not busy. Man, I will easily shoot 40 weddings this year, but honestly…that’s the issue. It’s become a serious point of contention interally, when friends ask me to do things and I have to AGAIN state that I’m working. It could be a Friday, a Saturday, a Monday…I’m freakin’ WORKING.
I have been exploring, emotionally and mentally, why I feel so run down by this business. Granted, I’ve been doing it for six years. There are ups and downs and while my job is fulfilling and offers SO many opportunities…I get tired of how I’m treated sometimes. Here’s looking at you, bride who ignores me for months before the wedding but somehow wants me to contain the bullshit from the wedding day chaos while still making you look like a model.
So when Kris and Nathan were not only communicative, but made me custom gifts AND treated me like a friend AND introduced me to the ENTIRE reception as a newly adopted friend…I cried. I cried and hugged Kristen for being so amazing. So generous. So sweet.
This wedding was rad as fuck. And reminded me why I love my job. and my client. and why I work the insane hours that I do during the busy season. I do it for Doctor Who Themed Weddings.
Shout out to these two, for being so amazing I wept.
