[pullquote style=”right” quote=”dark”] Waking up the next day sore from a good shoot will always be better than waking up rested knowing that you could have given more.
I’ve always read that shooting a 12-hour wedding will leave you feeling like you’d been hit by a train. I believed that was hyped up mumbo jumbo that people just said. I never believed that. Until August 4, 2013. After shooting for 14 hours the day before at Stellisa and JR’s wedding, I woke up and rolled out of bed. My body felt like I had finished the first day of two-a-days after not having been in high school for 26 years. I’m not exaggerating. Nearly every muscle in my body hurt… even my eyelids.
As Blair says, I’m glad I woke up feeling like this. It means that I gave it my all. It means I worked hard to document a day that can’t ever be redone. It means I created tangible memory queues that will help failing memories recollect the event in future years. It means that generations not even born yet can experience the day as if they had been there. It means that remnants of people who will leave this world left traces of their existence in the images I captured. It means I stopped time. I captured history. I preserved life.
