Carol + Ryan’s Sydney Australia Wedding

There are days I have as a photographer (and human being) that are just so surreal.

As I was shooting this wedding on the other side of the world…I had a tiny epiphany: The world just isn’t that big.

I mean of course it’s HUGE but after travelling and connecting with so many different people, in so many different places I am left feeling like this is just one big village. Sure this may sound a little cheesy, but I really don’t care. One of the main reasons I am a photographer is because I love going from strangers one minute to friends the next. I can’t even fathom how different my life would be if I hadn’t been where I have been and met who I have met. I am convinced, by¬†experience, that we all have something we can relate to in someone else. I could go off forever on this subject..but the bottom line is: I love my job.

Carol and Ryan flew me on over to document their wedding day. There was amazing light, pretty pink dresses, a room full of their friends and family and one very happy photographer.

I have to give a huge thanks to Brandon Worcester for assisting me that day. He picked me up from my hotel and 16hrs later, dropped me off. Within 5mins of meeting each other we realized we had a bunch of similar friends in LA. See! This is what I am talking about. SMALL WORLD. Anyway, he was amazing and such a big help. He also happens to be a very talented photographer with a great eye and amazing taste. Check out his work here.

Carol and Ryan, thank you again for having me come out. I wish you a very VERY happy life together.
