goodbye to weddings.

or at least to working them, anyway.

as much as i enjoyed my little stint as a wedding photographer, it's time for me to focus on other things. the pressure and the workload that come with a wedding are too intense to manage while also going to school full time and pursuing a completely different career. something was going to have to give, so i decided that it would be this.

i will really miss it, but i'm so glad i had the opportunity to spend time with such great couples. i learned countless things from the people i shot with and the people i shot for - lessons i will remember for the rest of my life.

i'm still booking portrait jobs when they come up...
but i'm looking forward to just attending weddings as a guest from now on. :)

good memories though.
really good memories.

i'm so thankful.


  1. I really like the bracelet in that last photo. It's so pretty!

    1. isn't it?! i don't know if you can tell when the picture so small, but it's engraved with 'mrs. dedes' :) so sweet!

  2. What career are you pursuing now? I completely support you, your decision, and your happiness. Just so you know, your photography is perfection, and if you ever get back into the wedding business, I've claimed dibs!

    1. you're too kind kristin - thanks so much for your encouragement! i'm working my way into the classroom - eventually i want to teach, so for now while i'm going to school, i'm going to be working as a teacher's assistant. getting my feet wet, as they say. :)
