I can remember when I first started my fine art wedding photography business – I was nervous, excited, scared, yet thrilled to see how God was going to work through me. At the time, I wasn’t sure how it would all turn out or who exactly I would be working with, but I knew within it all, I had a purpose to fulfill.
Throughout this journey, I wanted to keep my focus on one thing: light. The idea of chasing light in an effort to find creativity and truth in my work was empowering to me. It helped me to reach for new heights, take risks on my big ideas, and learn to trust that God had each step perfectly planned. I was prepared to discover more about myself than I ever had before and was hopeful my experiences would be more than I ever could have dreamed.
I’ve always wanted to make an impact on the world, and photography was the platform I was going to use to make it happen. Not only was I using this career to discover my passions, I wanted to become a light with those I worked with. Being in a relationship-based business meant being an essential part of the lives of people who were entering new, exciting seasons of their lives. I wanted to show my clients that through all of the stress, planning, and change, there was always a reason to be joyful. My role in their big moments was to remind them to pause and rejoice for new beginnings and be with them every step of the way. Even after the shoots ended and the parties were over, I felt a push to foster genuine, long-lasting relationships with each person I met.
The Chasing Light Styled Shoot is an expression of my mission behind Anny Photography. Fine art wedding photography is more than just beautiful pictures. It’s about the love my clients share to build the story behind a photo. It’s the small, unnoticed details that bring the whole piece together. It’s the emotion that is felt at the first glance and cherished for years to come.
This soft, elegant shoot portrays the fine details that define my love for photography. The simplicity of nature, the crispness of white space, and even the warm smiles captured in these moments embrace the passion in my heart to chase and become a light in this industry.
Although there is still so much more to experience in this journey, I am blessed to wake up each day doing what I love. From spectacular weddings to intimate engagement sessions, I am so grateful to have met and worked with so many amazing people along the way. Thank you for supporting my dreams over the years, and I can’t wait to see where God takes us next!
