(Yes…we’re snuggling…so what? We’re thankful for each other too!)
I’m not sure if we’ve ever had a blog post here at the studio during Thanksgiving time about what we’re thankful for…but sometimes we get in these really mushy moods, and feel like spilling our hearts out…so here goes:
We are honestly so, so, so thankful for all of our clients. We are blessed beyond belief with such kind people. We spend every weekend with people that make us feel like family, time and time again, when we are away from our own families. Thank you for trusting us and our vision to create beautiful memories for you. Thank you for supporting us and spilling your love out to us! Thank you for humoring us when we have crazy ideas…and thank you for giving us the opportunity to play! Thank you for letting us into your lives. Thank you for teaching us that love grows, and grows, and grows. Thank you for taking us all over this beautiful world of ours to document your lives. To all of our clients…couples, families, etc…from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
We are thankful for the AMAZING vendors that we work with time and time again! To the florists who constantly impress us with their creations; the hair and makeup artists that keep our brides looking amazing and like themselves; the caterers who keep delicious plates warm for us; the churches and reception venues that always take care of us; the planners who keep the day organized; the bakers that keep us filling our faces with delicious cakes and treats; the wedding gown shops that are constantly supply the most gorgeous gowns for our brides; the musicians and DJ’s that make Janine and I dance the night away…literally. You all make our job easy. We are so thankful that we have such a strong and kind team of vendors in the Omaha area. We LOVE working with you!
We are thankful for the incredible community of photographers that we know all across the world. You know who you are. Without the slew of you, we would never learn and grow in the wedding photojournalism world…and because of you all, we are constantly improving our craft. There is no other community like you, and we treasure that.
And lastly, we are so thankful for our own families big and small. For the ones we love daily, and the ones we don’t get to see often. It’s a tough job with the schedules we have, and it truly takes a village. We are thankful for the love and support you give us…for the Saturdays you watch our children, and the errands you run for us…for the ice cream and coffee you bring us when we’re editing hermits. You are appreciated far more than you’ll ever know, and this little paragraph about it doesn’t do it justice.
So with that…Happy Thanksgiving y’all! Take this time to make memories with those around you. We encourage you to be present with your loved ones! Put the cell phone away…get off Facebook and Twitter. Be present. Be thankful.
