Why I REALLY do what I do

Just read this article by Anne Almasy on Huffington Post.  I feel pretty much the same way about weddings and wedding photography...

"I love a good party. I love a bride in the most elaborate, fancy, princess-y dress you've ever dreamed of. I love custom chuppahs and embroidered aisle runners and matchy-matchy bridesmaids dresses. I love to photograph flowers and shoes.

But you know why I REALLY do what I do?

To photograph your parents, who will hold hands and cry on the first row of the chapel. To photograph your sister dancing with that boy she will marry in three years. To photograph those kids who will grow up so, so quickly. To photograph your grandfather, who will pass away next spring. To photograph your first kiss as a married couple, your best friend busting out her signature dance moves, the flower girl asleep under a table, and maybe even your ex looking pretty wistful as he hugs you a little too long in the receiving line."
