Medford Photography

Sunday, July 18, 2010


We had a wonderful engagement session with Paige and Butch last night. We started out at The Arboretum and moved onward to downtown, where we began taking pictures in the evening and continued into the night hours. They insisted on treating us to dinner. We can't possibly describe how much it means to us to be appreciated. And it doesn't take dinner to do that, we tried to pay but they wouldn't let us. Just to know that what we're doing means something to someone...it's an indescribable feeling. We put more work into our photography than most people know and it only started as a hobby. Don't get me wrong, it's still a hobby and we definitely still love what we do. But if you open our planner to any given day, it's clear that it's also a business now. And our secret is just as simple as this...feeling appreciated challenges us to go above and beyond. Just knowing that the subjects of our pictures acknowledge the countless hours we spend in front of the camera and computer, striving to make their memories unforgettable...that's really all it takes to complete our day. Needless to say, last night was not lacking in any way whatsoever.

Here's a quick preview of what's to come:

Paige and Butch are really great together. It's such a reminder of how lucky we are to be behind the scenes of a lot of the big moments in people's lives. It's amazing to see those stages playing out in front of you. They're totally on cloud nine and nothing could bring them down. It melts my heart (not quite as much as seeing those moments at the weddings we do, but it doesn't fall far behind). I always say how much I enjoy being able to witness people's fondest memories through something we both love to do. It starts with engagement, then sometimes bridals, the wedding, and if we get lucky enough to be their photographer as life unfolds, there's maternity, newborn, and family portraits. We get to see the happily ever afters, that we help capture on camera, play out right before our eyes. It's God's work. What's more exciting than that?! Not much. It truly is an honor.
