Sickness is Not a Wedding Favor

It was a beautiful Saturday morning. I stared off out the window as I enjoyed the first sips of my morning coffee. I couldn’t help but think of how beautiful a day it was and the session that I was supposed to be having at that very moment. 

Unfortunately it feels like I’m getting way too used to cancelations and postponements.This time was different though. You see, I had just received an email the day before letting me know that the couple wouldn’t be able to make it to the session because the groom-to-be had just tested positive for COVID-19. 

The coronavirus has upended a lot of plans this spring, but that was my first cancellation directly related to someone having the virus. It really made me stop and think. What if I’d received that notification after the session? We do everything we can to be as safe as possible by sticking with outdoor sessions and using long lenses in order to keep our distance, but still, it made it all so real.

I Love My Job

I love wedding photography! That may seem like a no brainer coming from a wedding photographer, but believe me it’s not. I was at a photography conference in January and three different presenters mentioned during their talks how much they hated weddings. I mean we’re talking about world traveling wedding photographers who actually despise weddings. That’s insane!

I can’t imagine investing so much time into a day and not even enjoying it. Now I know they would probably say that they enjoy being with the people or documenting the party, but the fact that they don’t like the actual wedding day makes me wonder. For example, would I want to buy a cake from a baker who hated baking? Or read a book by a writer who hated writing? When a profession becomes more stressful than fulfilling, it’s easy to lose that passion for what you do. I’m happy to say that I’m truly passionate about what I do, and I’m so thankful for that.

A Joke of a Wedding

They say there’s someone for everyone, but folks will argue that some people are just unloveable. That’s exactly why Joker and Harley Quinn have had such a twisted relationship over the years. Between Joker’s love for power and obsession with Batman it was enough to make a girl wonder if there was any room for love in his villainous heart. 

After teaming up with Batman to save Gotham City from his own destructive plot, Joker began to change. His icy demeanor began to soften. He joined a 12 Step group and began to truly face his demons. After Joker came crawling back for the 100th time Harley Quinn could finally see that something in him was different.

Social Distancing

Social distancing. Every year there’s a list of the most used words or phrases released. I have no doubt that “social distancing” will be on that list. Not only have we been hearing it mentioned multiple times a day, but we can see it everywhere we look. 

Many restaurants are closed or have removed tables to all for adequate social distancing. There’s even tape on the floor at many checkout lines to mark the recommended distance we should be standing from the next person in line. Heck, the last in-person 12 step meeting I attended had the chairs set up about 3-4 feet apart in a giant circle.

Right now it’s affecting every part of our daily lives. Friends are anxious and worried and you just want to give them a hug and let them know it’ll be ok, but you can’t. 

No matter how much some of us try to deny it, we’re social creatures and nothing is more social than a wedding. It’s a day filled with hand shakes, hugs, and lot’s of love being poured out on one another. Guests sit elbow to elbow for the ceremony and gather around large tables for the reception. You pass bread and hang out with close talkers, then you pack in on the dance floor with even closer dancing.

Joining Forces

Man are we living in some strange times! People are walking around wearing masks, stores are out of toilet paper, and some of our favorite restaurants are closed. The bustling historic streets of my beloved Savannah are way too quiet. 

Our reality has temporarily been altered and we have no idea when it will go back to normal. All of this uncertainty has caused a lot of anxiety during what should be an exciting time for those planning 2020 weddings.

I know things are super stressful right now, so I want to reassure you that we’re here for you! We’ve already been working with our fellow wedding vendors to schedule new dates for the spring weddings that have been affected by gathering restrictions and venue closures. 

Things are still a bit foggy as we move forward into the year, and honestly it’s a bit much for a solo photographer to handle alone, which is why I’ve joined forces with fellow Savannah wedding photographer Angela Hopper in order to better serve our couples.
