Paying it Forward

September 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last month I celebrated my birthday and wanted to do something nice for someone. As I mulled the idea in my head it came to me. I photographed Maria and Mike's wedding a couple years ago. They only paid me for my time to photograph the wedding and had planned to purchase the rest of the photography package they wanted at a later date. 

Well, after several setbacks and they were unable to purchase the remainder of the package and did not have any of their wedding photographs. I thought that they would be the perfect candidate for me to do something nice for them. That night I gathered their wedding photos, edited and sized them so they could have print made and uploaded the entire package of images to them. Maria and Mike did not know I was doing this for them. It was a complete surprise when Maria saw the email. 

I did not ask them for anything in return as it was a random act of kindness. Plus I thought no bride should go without her wedding photos. It made me feel good to be able to do something nice for someone with no strings attached.
