You know those moments in your life where you feel like some decisions are just more important than others? Well I faced one of those decisions last week and have finally come to a decision. This decision was whether or not to continue on with offering videography for weddings.
If you know me at all you would know that I have a huge passion for videography. And so it only made since to start shooting weddings, because well lets be honest, if I could do something I love and have a pretty decent income at the same time, that’s not a bad option. I quickly realized this wasn’t true for this situation. When I videographed my first wedding a few weeks ago, I was trying to convince myself that I really enjoyed it. Even a few weeks after the event, I was trying to say to myself, this is worth it, it’s videography and I love videography, so I have to love shooting weddings.
I had this “aha moment” the other day while cramming for a final presentation in one of my classes. I love videography, but I don’t love wedding videography. I know your probably saying “that was your aha moment”? Sorry to disappoint in the simplicity of the answer, but I had somehow misguided myself from this truth. I realized that this statement is okay, it’s actually a really good thing for me.
So what I am getting at, is what simple truth in your life are you misguiding yourself from seeing?
For me, I want to live a life that does not lead me to do a job I am not passionate about and I almost made a huge mistake in going down that exact path because of the financial benefits wedding videography offered. I am not giving up the wedding industry all together because I still absolutely love photographing weddings, but as far as video goes, I am giving that part up.
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I just recently (last night) proposed to my girlfriend of 5 years and she said yes! We couldn’t be more excited and have been waiting for this day for a very long time. I promise there will be a time where we will tell the whole story in a just a few days but until then, enjoy a snapshot from last nights proposal.
