Yearly Archives: 2011

There is only  days left of 2011 and I have been thinking a lot about the journey I have been on for the past several years.

4 years ago I told my parents that I wanted to pursue my love for photography. They completely supported me but warned me of all the hard work I would have to do to achieve my dream especially since I didn’t want to attend school. I spent that 1st year really discovering all the basic to photography and my love for photography grew into a passion.

3 years ago this coming spring, I quit my  job to do photography full time. A job that had security and a steady paycheck. I was so nervous, but I took the leap knowing that God was in control and that if he gave me this passion and drive for this, he would somehow make this work. Little did I know the plans he had for me over the next 3 years. I went from doing 4 weddings in 2009, to 3 in 2010, and then this last year I did 18 weddings.

That’s right, 18. Not to mention the countless other portrait sessions I have done.

As I type that number, I feel my heart race and huge smile dawns on my face. I remember many times over the last 3 years, I was up late lying in doubt, wondering “God, are you sure is this what I should be doing?” His answer was always “Scot, I have a plan for you, just trust me.” So I did. And he has taken to places I could have only imagined. If you had asked me 2 years ago if I thought I would have 18 weddings booked for 2011, I would have laughed in your face. Funny how God has way of proving us wrong:)

As I think back on all the events of this year of 2011, I just want to thank each and everyone of you. For your support, your kind words of encouragement, and for allowing me to capture these important moments in each of your lives. To trust and allow me to be there on such important days of your lives is huge responsibility and huge honor. I have enjoyed each and every moment and I cannot wait to work with you in the future and I can’t wait to meet even more of you in 2012.

Thank you everyone. It has been a BLAST !:)
