Mountain weddings give me life. 🏔️ Mount Si was the prominent background feature in every single one of the portraits I took on this wedding day, and I am not mad about it.
Okay fine, Instagram. I'm back. I can't quit you.
Can I be honest with you for a minute here? Sometimes I find Instagram overwhelming. I log on and see all these hundreds of beautiful images of beautiful couples in beautiful places and I start to wonder how my work ever stands out. I scan through travel hashtags and my bucket list gets that much longer--so long I wonder how it could be humanly possible to complete while still having a normal life. I find the perfect outfit, or the perfectly decorated room, or the perfect happy little family, and I wonder if I'll ever seem that put together. . And then I think about what image I'm projecting on my own feed. Yes, I love pretty pictures. I love capturing emotion and sharing my excitement with the world. I love sharing my travels. But my life is not perfect. I live a rather normal, even boring, life most of the time. And I have a feeling most other people do too. . These tiny squares can rule your life if you let them. . Don't. . Life is not an Instagram feed. . Behind every square is a human who is just as flawed and normal as you. And it's the behind the scenes that's the real beauty of life. . *Late night thoughts from a sleep-deprived photographer.*
Our anniversary passed by yesterday and I didn't post about it on social media. I actually barely had time to even think about the fact that yesterday marked five years since we stood in front of family and friends and became husband and wife. Sometimes life happens and you don't have time to share about it all with the world. Sometimes plans change and life becomes something different than what you were expecting. Sometimes life suddenly becomes so much more than what you were expecting. But one thing is for sure, I'm glad being married to this guy will never change. Happy anniversary, husband. 😘 📷: @thealexlasota
