There are 7 stages of grief and I personally believe there are just as many stages a photographer goes through on a wedding day. You wake up in the morning feeling pumped, then you show up to the wedding and nothing goes as planned (weddings rarely do), then you start taking pictures and really bond with the couple, reception is fun, people are cool. Then you are done and happy/exhausted/overwhelmed you get into the car and start looking through the photos. You don’t like anything. You come home, start editing and get super excited. One moment you feel like you’re a great photographer, another - you don’t know what’s going on. It’s ok to have an impostor syndrome as an artist. We all do. But every time we deliver a gallery to our clients, we get this unexplainable feeling of pride/excitement/accomplishment. It’s ok to get nervous. It means you really care.

I might have photographed an actual angel tonight - oh wait, it's just my bride being perfect. 💫 Still obsessed with how romantic tonights wedding was.
What COULD have been a rainy stormy mess turned into one of the most gorgeous June days, the perfect backdrop for Meghan and Ty’s wedding day. Congratulations you two!!!! I couldn’t be happier for you 🎉 #michellejoyphoto#michellejoybrides
