Well… it’s no joke. But lots fun. :P
It takes a lot of hard work and communication, which is something we still struggle with to this day as wedding photographers. We are two different people from two completely different backgrounds, raised in different languages and with different perceptions based on our lived experiences. So what we mean to say is this: every day is not a great day.
Don’t get me wrong, we absolutely love each other but we often disagree and that’s totally okay. Imagine always agreeing with your coworkers, your business partners? Things would be a little different in this world. So separating both work/personal life is often difficult, and having those tough conversations means our personal lives intertwine.
I’d like to think that over the years, we’ve found a good balance and that our partnership has evolved into a beautiful thing, but I’d be lying if I said we are perfectly in sync because we’re not (well… except when we’re photographing weddings on PEI and then it’s like we’re in a dance; but we can talk about that later).
Sean and I have found our little pockets of happiness in days filled with a certain chaos and we have found each other to rely on, especially on tough days. And that’s one of the things I love most about working with my significant other: he’s there for me, always. If we go through a tough time, we go through it together, hand in hand, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer.
We are wedding photographers, but also humans first. And I wouldn’t do this with anyone else, I wouldn’t want to share these happy moments we get to witness and be a part of so many beautiful love stories with anyone else.
Because they all remind me of our love too.
