Working Together

I love it when I have the opportunity to work with John! I truly believe that we are better together...and I often wish we could be together all the time.

I don't get to spend every minute of the day with my beloved, but I do get to spend lots of time with him during wedding season. John and I have photographed almost every wedding together since I started my photography business a few years ago. I love working with him because we know each other so well. We know each other's strengths and weaknesses. We know our equipment. We know the wedding day plan. We anticipate each other's needs and we know our work flow so well that we hardly have to talk about it. 

This past weekend's wedding reminded me how much I enjoy being one with my husband. We are better together and I wouldn't want to live life any other way.

We took these photos at the same time.

Before John and I started dating, we were having a conversation about diamonds with some friends when I declared that I didn't really care to have a diamond engagement ring someday. I didn't know this at the moments, but my response took John by surprise. 

I have to admit that I think diamonds are beautiful (and shiny!), but they also represent a lot of things I do not agree with. 

This article has highlighted many of my thoughts. Whether you agree or not, this is something worth thinking about!
