In addition to all that shit right there, I’ve been working harder than I ever have in my life. I’m busy and exhausted and a tiny bit overwhelmed, because it’s summer – wedding season.
“We were getting a lot of pressure from our dog. He kept saying, ‘Dads, why don’t you get married?’”
Pretty much all I’ve been doing for months is shooting weddings and elopements. The irony is not lost on me. Loads of people have asked if it’s hard, but it’s not. It’s hopeful, and it’s really fun. I love what I do, and while working, I completely forget to be sad. It’s a relief from the otherwise constant ache, and when the sadness creeps back into my chest at the end of the night as I’m packing up my things, there’s something warm mixed in there, too.
Glimmers of hope, I think? Because look. Look at all this love I get to be surrounded by. Thank goodness.

“You guys do realize I can still see you under there, making out?”
“Ha! Yes! But it feels like our own little world.”
