Happy Sunday! This week, in honor of Mother’s day, I decided to post a mini project that my mom really liked. My mother is one of my biggest supporters. She dreamed of her little girl being a nurse, like her. Instead she got this anxiety ridden artist. I couldn’t ask for a better mother. Ill dedicate this post to all mothers, living or passed on, single mothers/fathers, and anyone who is that mother figure in someones life.
Just 3 years ago if I heard those two works spoken together I would cringe. Shooting weddings scared me. When I shot my first wedding in 2009, I was only an assistant. Yet, I was so nervous I threw up in the bathroom before the ceremony even started. When I shot my first wedding solo, I, again, was too nervous to even present the photos and book to the Bride. I just mailed it to her. Now, I’m only scared a little of the thought of sleepless nights of editing.
I am only a year into the start of my business, Mariah Alicia Visual. Its a slow and steady process that I’m humbled to go through. With summer season approaching, I’m mentally preparing myself for the weddings I have booked this season. I’m much more comfortable shooting weddings now. Over the last few years, I’ve grown into my own and I’m not as socially awkward as I use to be (for the most part).
If you or anyone you know needs a wedding photographer, you can view more of my sample work on my website. You can also drop my a line here, or skip all that and email me directly email@example.com.
