Six years

Yesterday was my six year business anniversary and it’s funny to me that six years ago you could have asked me what I might be doing in six years and I probably would have said I didn’t know. I would have hoped I’d be doing this, but back then this business was mostly just lots of big dreams and not a lot else. I had no website, no experience, didn’t own very much in the way of camera gear, and I had no idea how I’d save up for what I needed/wanted! I remember one day sitting at my desk, scrolling looking at camera gear, and thinking to myself “There’s no way I can do this…it would probably take forever to build a business and I can’t even picture it right now”. Little did I know all of the hard work that I’d put in over the next months and years would lead me to be sitting at my desk today, typing out a six-year anniversary post!

It’s been six years since I picked up my camera and photographed my first wedding and I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach that I felt that day and how I didn’t even eat before because I was so nervous! My hands were shaking a little bit as I worried about missing some kind of pivotal moment or picking the wrong kind of light to shoot in. I had no idea what I was getting myself into! Six years after that first wedding, I’ve photographed over 125 weddings and while I’m no longer nervous to the point where I can’t eat before I start shooting, I still take every wedding day as seriously as I took my first one. It’s a privilege to be a part of one of the biggest days of someone’s life! And to included in so many intimate moments throughout that big day is always such an honor to me. I don’t take that lightly and I’m thankful to every single one of our clients who’s let us into their world over the past six years!

My life has changed in a thousand ways since that first wedding and although the journey to where I am today hasn’t always been easy, it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m grateful every day to have the opportunity to make something that I love into a career! Happy six years to KNP!
