Wedding Chat with Sande - Retiring my Wedding Shoes

Below is a photo of my Tom's that I wore to every wedding I photographed the last couple of years. I loved these shoes when I bought them - they were so sparkly & comfortable - perfect shoes for a wedding photographer. They look pretty worn out now don't they? I kept telling myself I needed a new pair but never took the time to go buy some.

On December 2, I photographed my last wedding. I savored every moment of that wedding, loving every minute of it. I wish I didn't have to give them up. I love weddings and I love brides. But, weddings caused me to have no balance in my life - all work and no play!! And I was always exhausted.

Every single wedding brought me a family that I hold dear in my heart. 95% of them have become my good friends. I feel like an honorary mom to my brides, I fall in love with them as if they are my own daughters. I am sad because I will miss all of this so much.

Here's to 2018 - I have been discussing new ventures with others and will see what God brings me. I am excited that I still get to be honorary mother (or grandmother) to many graduates and families!

Love you and Happy 2018! Bye Bye worn out Tom's!!
