Happy start to the week! If I have to be completely honest, I'm feeling a little flat today, but that is only because I want to be staying home in front of the computer playing with the images Ray and I captured of our gorgeous friends wedding over the weekend.
I had butterflies in my belly in the morning of the wedding, the unknown of my capability of calmly capturing a wedding, when I had never even conducted a 'shoot' before. Like most things (in my life anyway) being thrown off the deep end to sink or swim is often the best way.
Feedback throughout the day was AWESOME, the bride, bridesmaids and my super supportive right hand man on the day (the husband) were keeping me going. By the end of the night Exhaustion was one word that came to mind, but a wholesome I feel happy with what I have achieved today kind.
On other fronts, there is another first for me coming up and that is being an on the day coordinator for a local wedding. Meeting with the bride today to comb over the final details.
Which has me buzzing and thinking, have you ever actively pursued your hobby? Pushed yourself outside of your comfort zone? I am forever using language like "I'll be ready when I just get that next lens" or felt like you need some professional testimonials to know you're good enough?
