The power of a picture.

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.
