Taking just a step back...

I recently shot a wedding with Nadege Barnes the owner of "A Touch of French Romance" at the Newport Beach Country Club in ..well Newport Beach. My goal for the entire wedding was to try and get something so incredibly different, unique and well stunning. Every time I took a shot I looked and visioned asking my self is this "the one." The first dance photo I loved but I wasn't sure if i got "the one" that I was looking for. Over and over I kept looking for "thee" shot. It wasn't until I finally stopped shooting for a minute, stepped outside for some water and air. On my way inside it hit me, candles, fog, dancing, and the lights were set up on the dance floor *BAM* I Found "the one" I was looking for the entire night, now the only thing I needed was that perfect moment in time. As I waited and waited and waited and waited..... Okay i didn't wait that long it was like a total of two minutes. I got the shot i wanted all night, happened to be right before the night was over. All it took was that time for me to take a step back and look.
I took this lesson to more than photography. At life. Sometimes all we have to do is take a step back and realize that the perfect blessing is right in front of you the whole time. Sometimes all it takes to realize what is in front of you is a step back.
