It’s time to show up, educate ourselves, and reflect on our privilege. There is no singular way to provide support, but for the next two weeks I will be donating 100% of the profits from any print sales to Black Visions Collective and the Massachusetts Bail Fund. I have a print shop from my travels which I will link in my profile, and if you are a past wedding/ family/ portrait client who has a gallery of mine, I will be donating these sales as well. If you want an excuse to buy some art or have been meaning to print some wedding photos, here’s a good reason. If you’re able to donate to organizations on your own, please consider doing so. And if you’re not in position to be able to, please spread the word about resources to your network. Stay safe and take care of each other out there.
We stopped at a volcano themed restaurant and went through a buffet line in the middle of their wedding day because we were all getting hangry. As elopements begin to shine as a result of all of this madness, just think about all the flexibility we have to go through buffet lines now.
A narrow trail, perfect for one.
A father and a bus driver, waiting.
Anyone remember college? Me either.
A redundant sentiment for my vendor friends but it doesn’t look like many of us in the wedding industry are going to have significant work for an entire year at this point, with losses extending well into next year. It’s sad, it’s scary, and it makes me view my own work through a different lens these days. Forever grateful that people have intimately allowed me into their lives to tell their stories, and I’m looking forward to the day I can pick up my cameras again.
