For a long, long time – since I was little – I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I went to university, studied engineering, IT, business, accounting and international development. I have worked in customer relations, account management, project management, government policy and even had an import business. All this, over the space of about 10 years. A whole decade trying to figure out what made me happy and what I wanted to be when I grew up.
Then I found photography.
I quit my office job in December 2009 and I haven’t looked back since. I have found happiness in what I do. Finally! I feel grown up. I know what I am – not what I studied, not what my job is. I’m a photographer.
There’s a saying – do what you love for living and you’ll never work a day in your life. I always thought it was just a line, something people say. But it has become true for me. I love what I do and it never feels like work. Even if I’m shooting a wedding for 14 hours, I’m happy for 14 hours. Maybe a little tired by the 12th hour, but happy.
I love wedding photography! I love photographing weddings!
