Today I’m writing to share an article with you – the article linked below written by a college friend of mine. I hadn’t seen him in several years but he contacted me a month or two ago asking if I would mind if he could use a photo I took at another friends wedding some 7 years ago in a piece he was writing on the topic of ‘joy’. To say I was honored is an understatement.
It was just a snap shot I took of some friends doing what my friends did best – be their crazy fun selves. I’ve certainly taken better photos, technically speaking, then the one he spoke of, but the point is that this image mattered to him and those friends. It’s a link to a memory, of a time when things were good, when friends who don’t always see each other that often were together, a time joy was felt.
I love my job, I say it almost daily, and while I love all the different parts of a wedding day – moments of joy, quiet moments, unscripted real life moments are the ones I look forward to the most. Those images are always the ones I hope keep alive those moments of joy for my clients, my friends, and my family. So thanks to Adam Lorenz and his article over on Reclaiming Life – feel free to check out his words.
I would love to hear about or see the images that represent a time in your life of pure joy, feel free to share and post if you would like! A little happy for your Friday!
