Let me tell you what makes me happy of being a wedding photographer.
It is when you feel honored to shoot every wedding regardless of the hundreds I did. It's when my inbox is filled with genuine feelings of gratitude, or when I get a sweet thank-you text on the same day. It's when they tell you, "We feel like we paid you less than what you deserve." It is when you feel they are proud of you, not only for the name but for the person. It's when the couple tells me after three years of marriage, "We stop by our wedding photos every day." It's when a bride shares a 20-points post answering a question, "Why I chose Gohar out of the crowd?" It's when they call you after a couple of years to shoot their newborn baby. It's when you go out with them as friends. It's when your concern isn't the competition but self-challenge. It's when you are never satisfied regardless of how your 100% of couples you shot are over-satisfied.
Your ceiling is not only their expectations but also if I'm happy.
