Some say the first step to great photography is putting yourself in front of beautiful things. This summer I’ve had to visit family across the country, shoot weddings in new places, and see places I’ve never seen before (like the Grand Canyon). I’m kind of a homebody by nature, so traveling isn’t quite in my blood. My work as a photographer forces me to explore, and sometimes I take that for granted. As summer wraps up, I’m reminded of the unsurmountable beauty of this world. Even more so, a beautiful creator who blesses us to enjoy this artful place. While my wife heads back to school to prepare her classroom, I’m back to my regular routine in front of the computer. I’m excited to get back to the grind, shoot some weddings, and show some beautiful photos. Stay tuned!
