You’ve heard of the bride and groom’s first dance, but what about the last dance? 

It’s when all the guests start to funnel out of the reception hall, and the bride and groom, without a single pair of eyes on them, get to share their own private dance together. With one spotlight shining on them, the reception room dark and near empty, it’s the last moment of their wedding day. @angmclark03 @z_clark95 this is one of my favorite moments from your day. Can’t wait to share your final gallery next week!

You can take the Man out of Florida, but you can’t take Florida out of the man 

Real talk though, the last year and a half has been the hardest I’ve ever struggled. When the pandemic started going down, I didn’t know what was going to happen, if I was ever going to get my jobs back. With basically 0 income, I was terrified of how easily stability in my life could just crumble like that. I haphazardly moved to a new place to just start fresh. I never wanted that sense of stability to be in anybody’s hands except my own again, so I set off to work for myself. I gave it my all, but struggled hard. Before this, the term “starving artist” was just an expression, not a harsh reality. I worked every day toward self sufficiency but failed  every step of the way. I still showed up every day to make it happen. I worked until I had absolutely nothing before finally taking another job. Towards the end of my lease, I was skipping meals, and eating very little just afford rent. I had nobody to blame but myself though. That didn’t make it any easier. Pile isolation from being away from everyone I was close to on top of that, it was truly one of the most difficult times in my life. I think back now to the days I just spent  in bed, feeling defeated, wishing for the days to pass quicker so I could get out of my situation. It was the first time I ever truly felt like a failure. You might even read this and point out every mistake I made along the way, trust me. I think about it all the time. But life is all about making mistakes. 

Though in a way, I’m glad it all happened. Throughout that experience I grew so much, maybe not as an artist but as a person. With nobody but myself, I learned how to access inner strength and pull myself out of dark mindsets that seemed to come every other day. Crushing feelings of inadequacy and failure. I’m happy to say now my mental health and overall well-being has bounced back. I’m continually fortunate for the friends who have stood at my side throughout all this. Just being there means more than you could ever know 💚 

Shoutout to one of those friends @tricia_shoe_ for taking these lovely photos, she’s so incredibly talented

I truly enjoy every wedding I photograph, but it's an extra special occasion when the bride and I have literally known each other since kindergarten. @angmclark03 thank you so much for allowing me to share in this special day with you and Zach. I feel so so blessed to know you both as well as Erin. You are an extraordinary couple full of love and compassion not only for yourselves but for everyone around you. I wish you and Zach nothing but the best in all the years ahead!
