Sometimes when I sit down to write a blog post, the words just don't come. But as I stare at the pictures, emotions well up and feelings push to become words...
Words that I want to say about that one night on the beach in Maine when we lit a Chinese lantern together.
The moment: well, it was hurried. I was the photographer, you were the assistant, and we wanted photos of us actually enjoying being guests for 2 minutes.
We were exhausted, but overwhelmed with the beautiful day, the beautiful ocean, the beautiful bride and groom, and the beautiful lanterns.
But when I reminisce, I wish I would've been more in the moment. Less the photographer and more the guest. Less the planner and more along for the ride. Less the I-want-this-photo-to-be-perfect-so-I'll-smile-and-stand-like-this and more just being.
Because as much as I really do want the beautiful photos of us... a beautiful photo means absolutely nothing without a beautiful memory.
And beautiful memories are only made by being all there. Enjoying every moment.
So please... Enjoy your Friday and have a lovely weekend. :)
