I showed up with Wendy to a job for an old friend of ours with a camera strapped to my neck.
"What the, what the? I don't understand what is happening here, but I like it!" He exclaimed. He had not heard that we were working together.
I smirked. I could not have said it better myself.
I have always loved photography. As a kid, I would spend hours at the county fair completely enamored with the photography.
I have found taking pictures to be soothing and intriguing ever since I started as a teenager.
Then Wendy goes and builds this awesome business with her incredible skill. (Sorry if this post is too gushy, but I warn you to look away if you have already found it so. LOOK AWAY!)
It became apparent that there would be too much work for just one person, even a person as crazy good as Wendy. (It is not like I did not warn you. You know, regarding the gushiness.)
I started helping with the editing about a year ago. I was itching to officially get behind the camera, though. A few months ago, we decided it was time. (Cue dramatic music.)
I love Wendy. We are the sort of couple that thrives on being around each other. Our incessant chatter drowns out the radio, we play silly games like hide and go seek and sock ball fights. I don't need guy time or alone time, just Wendy time. (Hey- it is not like you should not have seen this sort of thing coming.)
So the prospect of shooting with Wendy was wonderful. But, I had no idea how stupidly cool it would be. Sometimes a client will ask me a question.
"What is your name?" I just stare at them for a moment in slack-jawed glee.
"Hi, I am Tyler, I don't understand what is happening here, but I like it."
It is rad-overload.
