Napa Wedding, Celia & Gabe
JUNE 2017 - Napa, California - Backyard Vineyard Wedding
Sometimes we go through life looking for "signs" that we are on the path we are meant to be on. A phone call signifies we are meant to be connected to a certain person. An email signifies we are meant to work at a certain company. An amorphous water blob signifies... basically whatever you want it to.
I've searched for signs my whole life until a couple years ago - but only today realized I had stopped. The reason I stopped is because I didn't need them anymore. I had been looking for some external force to tell me I was heading in the right direction, and that what I was doing was what I was meant to be doing.
Now, though, I do what I love. 100% sure that this is where I am meant to be. I got to photograph a dream wedding in an inspiring place with warm, loving people, and I don't need a sign that this is what I'm meant to be doing.
If you find yourself looking for something to be flashing bright "THIS IS THE RIGHT PATH, FOLLOW IT" that will most likely never happen (never say never though, right?). I think the key is to reflect and let yourself find what you truly want, and to go for it. That's as clear as it will get. Deep down I wanted to be a photographer, and then the shoots and trips and experiences I truly wanted started to come to fruition, because I identified what I wanted.
Find what you love and go after it. Find who you love and don't let them go. Get married in Napa and dance the night away.
