2015 was a year that just kept getting better & better for me, Jessica Ryan! Both personally & professionally I felt at times like I was sky rocketing into opportunities & directions I had always aspired too. Yes it was a lot of work & a lot of learning along the way, especially with time management but it made me better because of that! I met & photographed the best couples who truly made connections with me & friendships. I feel that I have made friendships with a lot of my brides & still get amazed when they send me an email or text to see how I am doing or that they want to get together to catch up. I love that! I cannot tell you how much I love that! I needed to share a recap of 2015 & all of the couples because I just do not want my experience to end with them! All of the wedding days that I got to document this year I will always remember because they were such special days. These people were truly amazing! I felt honored to photograph each of their wedding day(s) & I caught myself looking around at moments of their day(s) thinking that I am the lucky one to be here!
I will end this blog post with this quote by Tyler Knott Gregson: “I believe in love at first sight but I will always believe that the people we love we have loved before. Many, many, many times before and when we stumble through grace and circumstance and that brilliant illusion of choice to finally meet them again, we feel it faster each time through. The one glance that set life alight is two sets of two eyes staring through the layers of lifetimes and stolen glances and first kisses and hands held; the brace against the weight and unrelenting tide of waiting. I believe in love at first sight but am not burdened with the misconception that it’s a first sight at all.” I hope all of my couples from 2015 & beyond will always feel the way the quote describes, about their husband or wife. I hope this quote rings true to you & that your love is rooted deep down within each other. I hope that your true love’s first glance felt more like a sigh of relief & of reassurance as you thought, “well there you are…”
