I promise you my heart stopped when a dear friend of mine asked me to be the photographer for her wedding. Honestly part of me hesitated because one I wanted to enjoy my time and also feared I would be to distracted with all the excitement of the wedding that I will end up forgetting to take pictures and two, because I felt I just needed a little more practice before taking a big position like this. If you’re familiar with most of my blog posts you will know that I am a new photographer, yet what’s so crazy is as soon as I started photography so many opportunities has been opening for me to learn, grow and experience new things as a photographer. I guess you can say it’s a blessing in disguise. I do have to admit I get this constant fear when others approach me to be their photographer, I get so nervous that my photos won’t come out the way they expected. I also let my insecurities get the best of me. One thing I’ve learn is it may be easier being a photographer without making a commitment to others, just freely taking photos on my own and avoiding any fear of messing up. Then I realize I won’t be as successful as a photographer without making a commitment to others, I won’t be as successful if I stay in my comfort zone and I won’t be successful if I let my insecurities get the best of me.
