I am a wannabe. A wannabe recording engineer, a wannabe interior designer, a wannabe anthropologist, and lately:
a wannabe photographer.
This is Justin Hackworth. He is the real McCoy.
On Friday afternoon last week, I glanced at Twitter for a split second and saw this tweet from Justin: "Anyone want to assist me at a photo shoot today? Sure could use some help." Without hesitating I posted back a "Yes." These are not Justin's photos (his are WAY better) but rather my documentation of that photo shoot on my iPhone camera.
After seeing the genuine interest and patience that Justin has and the way he makes his subjects feel so at ease, I knew I could never do what he does. I'll stick with writing songs tucked away in my office like a hermit, thank you very much.
I told Justin that if I could get married all over again, I would spend the large part of my budget on the photography. "Everyone always tells me that!" he replied. It's one of the very few tangible things you walk away with to remind you of your wedding
for the rest of your life.
Do you remember this? Maybe you are smack dab in the middle of it right now. How beautiful. Enjoy every minute.
