Today I received an email that made my day. No….. my week (and maybe more).
It was from one of my latest brides, Amanda. She said some really sweet words about all the wonderful comments they’ve gotten about their photos, but what came next pretty much made me cry.
“I wanted to let you know that one of our first days in Hawaii Glenn wanted to pray…he prayed specifically for wonderful godly husbands for [my sister, my friend] and you. He was impressed with you all! We will continue to pray that for you!!! I’m sure it’s tough doing weddings all the time, but there’s gotta be someone out there for such a wonderful gal as you!!!!
Oh, and while we were there in Hawaii and trying to take some good photos he was like…we need Jen Disney to get some good pics of this. ( : HA! Bringing our own photographer on trips with us now…richie rich!”
I wanted to share this here to let you into my heart a little. When I photograph weddings I do try and be as unobtrusive as possible. Except for the times that I’m working directly with the bride and groom or their families, I try to not be seen too much.
But when I read this, I felt seen. Noticed.
And it felt nice.
It is hard at times being a wedding photographer that is single. I get really excited about all the details of the weddings I shoot and I can’t wait to plan my own! I’ve got some great ideas in this head of mine! But more than that, I spend most of my days looking at pictures of people who are in love.
That’s hard sometimes. I want that.
That doesn’t take away from the fact that I love what I do. And most of the time this is not something that I consciously think about.
So I just share that with you my blog readers to give you a glimpse into my heart. And if you feel like it, go ahead and join Amanda and Glenn in that prayer! 🙂
And here’s one more of my favorites from Todd and Alisa’s wedding that I will post the rest of SOON!
