I don’t know if you’re like me or not, but I would much rather go on a trip to Europe for a month than buy a newer car. I get that there are necessities in life that everyone needs to get along, but once those basics are met, I am the kind of person that likes to invest in experiences as opposed to things. Some of my greatest memories are wrapped up in little adventures. Like skydiving! I was able to go my freshman year of college, and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever done! The best part is being able to see the world from so high without a two inch thick scratched up airplane window between you and your view. Oh man, I feel the need to post a pic now! Hold on…
*Please forgive the quality of the images. They are screen captures from a video*
So yeah. That was a pretty amazing experience, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was also one of the scariest moments I have ever experienced! But it was such a relief once I jumped, because the experience far outweighed any fears! I’m not quite sure where I was wanting to go with all of this, but let me try to get somewhere. The idea for this blog started with seeing these pics from a recent wedding…
I just love this set of photos. It shows exactly what I am talking about. I love the fact that a picture can bring a person back to a moment that they experienced. Not only can it take them back, but they can re-live the emotions if they let themselves! When I got distracted – which happens a lot – and talked about skydiving, I just HAD to share! In pulling those few photos from my video, I was able to re-live my skydiving experience! In hind-sight, I laughed at how absolutely terrified I was, I got a small lump in my stomach as I watched my feet drag off the plane, and remembered how AWESOME it was to be up so high above the clouds with a view that is out of this world!
Well, that will be all the writing for tonight. If you all only knew how self conscious I am about writing! For some reason, it’s hard for me to find it acceptable to write like I talk! But, then again, I am facing a weird kind of “fear” but putting myself out there in the written word. Hope that you are able to get past all my writing flaws to get know me a little better
Oh, I know what I was trying to say! It is important to record the moments of your wedding through photojournalistic wedding photography. The experience doesn’t have to end.
