This week I took a quick trip down to Franklin, TN. to have my portrait taken by @jeremycowart . Jeremy is actually one of the reasons that I am a photographer today. I was at a fork in the road and saw him speak at a conference and decided to pursue photography from there. Jeremy has been creating portrait sessions in the style of whatever your Enneagram number is. If you didn’t know, I am a 4 - which is also known as the Individualist. These are all found over at @enneagraph ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4’s tend to be driven from the heart, and act out of emotion. We’re comfortable sitting with pain in our hearts. We often linger way too long on things that have happened in the past. We have this longing desire to feel unique, or one of a kind. Even after dropping out of college because of my depression, I had this desire to be different. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I started experimenting with different outlets of creativity. I began writing, doing some small video work. I tried to teach myself how to play guitar, and piano. I even bought an acrylic paint set. I wanted to do anything that would set me apart. I eventually landed on a camera. It’s been on of the big things that have brought me joy in the last 5 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Enneagram 4’s carry a lot of weight on their hearts. Jeremy’s images always spoke to me because there is a darkness in them. I’ve struggled with depression for years, and I can see that in some of these images. But I can also see the light in them too. I can see the uniqueness, the fun, the joy the laughter in myself. I’ve learned that it’s okay to be sad at times, but it’s important not to let that sadness spill over into the things that bring you joy in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t view the enneagram as an end all be all of personality tests. I view it as a tool to help me get from an unhealthy heart, to a healthy one and to point my focus back to God.
I’m a huge fan of taking some extra time alone after you’re married. There’s so much going on during your wedding, that it can sometimes be hard to find time to breath with your new spouse. Sunset photos aren’t just about getting more pictures - to me it allows space for you to slow down and process what you guys are starting together. It can create some much needed quality time…. and the photos don’t hurt either 😏😉 . . . . #weddingphotography #lancasterweddingphotographer #PAweddingphotographer #paweddings #weddingdress #weddingday #letsgetmarried #bestweddings #brideandgroom #justengaged #engagements #ringbling #phillyweddings #philadelphiaweddingphotography #phillywedding #weddingplanning #weddinghelp #soontobewed #justengaged #putaringonit
An old one from about a year ago in San Diego. Shortly before I baptized my camera in the ocean 😅 • • • #sandiegoengagementsessions #sandiego #beachengagementsessions #californiaweddings #baltimoreweddingphotographer #moodyweddingphotographer #indiebride #couplesphotography #gabemcmullenphotography #junebugweddings #justengaged #oregonweddingphotographer #sandiegoweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #coloradoweddingphotographer #Isaidyes #happilyengaged❤️
Heyyyy friends, I know it’s been a bit since I’ve shared any images of super happy people in love, so I figured today would be a good day to do that! • • • • #lancasterpaengagementsessions #lancasterweddings #lancasterpaweddings #lancasterpaweddings #blackandehite #philadelphiaweddingphotog #californiaweddings #baltimoreweddingphotographer #moodyweddingphotographer #indiebride #couplesphotography #gabemcmullenphotography #junebugweddings #justengaged #oregonweddingphotographer #sandiegoweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #coloradoweddingphotographer #Isaidyes #happilyengaged
Figured I would share what I've been up to while everyone back in America is asleep. I'm about three days into my adventure in Australia with @loganbsimmons and I've (thankfully) only seen one big spider! No Koala's or Kangaroo's though (biggest disappointment so far). The coffee has been amazing, and the brews have been good. We're up in Brisbane for the remainder of the week, and just taking some time to relax and wander around.
