Anytime I speak in front of people I just hope that it doesn’t get to the point that they fall asleep. Right? I mean that would be the ultimate low as far as interest from the crowd goes, and there’s not enough inflection in my voice to bring them out of that.

Tonight I’ve been invited to share with a group of art students at my alma mater about my path to becoming a wedding photographer and starting my business. I’m excited! While I know there are plenty of talented artists and photographers out there to hear from, but everyone has a different story and I hope that part of mine resonates with someone. I’ve been putting some slides together since everyone loves a good visual, and have included a few above. Looking back at where I’ve been I can’t help but be incredibly grateful to everyone who’s hired, believed in, and supported me along the way! Time for me to encourage other people to pursue their passion too.

Jake (the intern) is in this class and last week he fell asleep for a good few minutes of the presentation. So, it makes me feel better that it’s been done before… and the chances are pretty good that it could happen again (just kidding Jake… but seriously, it won’t surprise me).
