It started out as a necessity. I was living in the country, approximately 60 miles from a city and trying to build my photography business. Travel quickly became a part of photographing weddings. Of course, I enjoyed the adventure, the chance to get away from the country life and I fully embraced the opportunities. Then, we moved to Virginia… and later back to New York. The weddings that I had booked which seemed to be relatively close now were a bit farther. I spent two summers driving back and forth between the states for weddings I had already booked, visiting friends along the way.
These days I still love to add in a little travel to my life and work and while the majority of my weddings are still in state, at least a third are not. Since establishing myself as a photographer who travels I continue to book weddings in different locations each year. I love the clients I am able to work with both in state and out and this year is no exception. (I seriously look forward to their weddings each day). They are people who are referred by friends, find me through work online, or stumbled upon this blog one way or another and have stuck around. They are interested in working with me which of course is every photographer’s dream, and why I am more than happy to travel to work with them.
2012 has turned out to be the year of travel, and as you can see above there are several stops across the country. Not all of them are for weddings, I confess New Mexico was a trip to see family but I needed some more yellow out there to make the map pretty so I added it in. If any of the places above look familiar to you and you want to know where and when I’ll be there to meet up, have coffee (you know I love good coffee) or take some photos, let me know! seriously.
…and now, the trip of all trips is taking place this summer. Dreams really do come true – and this July I’ll be headed over to Australia! I’m joining Lynda + Keegan for their Sydney wedding and absolutely can not wait. I can’t. I’m going to go start packing right now.
