iF I'M BEING HONEST, TALKING ABOUT MYSELF FEELS BLEH, BECAUSE NOTHING ABOUT YOUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT ME. BUT IF I MUST (AND SINCE we're going to be GREAT PALS), HERE'S A SNIPPIT: self proclaimed nerd WHO HAS NEVER REALLY FIT IN, I spent my school years in baggy ozzy osbourne t-shirts, buried in fantasy novels about dragons, playing role-playing video games, and screaming lyrics in the pit at live shows with my friends trying to escape my reality (and surprise-not much of this has changed).
i didn't have the perfect family portrait to display on my wedding day. I lost my dad to his battle with alcoholism at the age of thirteen. then THREE YEARS LATER, I LOST MY GRANDPA TO A BATTLE WITH CANCER ON MY 16TH BIRTHDAY. obviously, there's a lot more story in between those two sentences: a childhood that made me isolated from my peers, LEFT ME WITH DEMONS TO BATTLE, AND GAVE ME A SURVIVAL INSTINCT AND OUTLOOK ON LIFE that today I'D NEVER TRADE. my mom, sister, and i dropped everything IN 2013 to leave our little trailer park in illinois and run off to colorado to start over. i'm telling you this, because this is my why. i was dealt a hand that has UNIQUELY SHAPED ME AND MY ABILITY TO CAPTURE your mEMORIES unfolding through a lens of personal experience that SHAPES MY ART. THE IMPORTANTANCE I PLACE IN HOW I CAPTURE THESE MOMENTS FOR YOU. I’m putting my heart and soul into your happiest memories, so that you CAN ALWAYS REMEMBER. BECAUSE IT'S NOT ABOUT ME, AND I care a whole lot ABOUT YOU.
you'll always be welcome here
+ regardless of how "COOL ENOUGH" OR "TRENDY/luxury ENOUGH" your wedding day is
+ no matter who you love, who you are, or what you look like
+ despite your family trauma or anxiety around how you want to get married
