iF I'M BEING HONEST, TALKING ABOUT MYSELF HERE FEELS AWKWARD AF, BECAUSE NOTHING ABOUT YOUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT ME (except that TOGETHER WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE A REAL GOOD TIME). BUT IF I MUST (AND SINCE we're going to be GREAT friends after this), HERE'S A SNIPPIT: I'M JUST A kid at heart and self proclaimed nerd WHO HAS NEVER REALLY FIT IN, WHO 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 I LOST MY GRANDPA TO A BATTLE WITH CANCER ON MY 16TH BIRTHDAY. and obviously there's a lot more story in between those two sentences: a SINGLE-PARENT childhood that made me isolated from my peers, LEFT ME WITH A FEW 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 and it's meant all the difference. i'm telling you this because it directly affects you: i was dealt a hand that has UNIQUELY SHAPED me, and now MY ABILITY TO CAPTURE your mEMORIES unfolding through a lens of personal experience that SHAPES MY ART AND 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 have more than three photos left to remember once all this is over. because i've been there. BECAUSE IT'S NOT ABOUT ME, AND I care a whole lot ABOUT YOU.
A FEW MEMORIES of a person that meant a lot to me & taught me how important it is to remember
that means 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
