Yesterday I drove to Appleton to meet up with Jordan Snyder, our wedding photographer. We discussed our ceremony and reception plan, wedding colours, the smaller details that so often get overlooked. After I had signed his contract and we were more comfortable with one another, we sat in Starbucks and talked about cameras and lenses and our most and least hated things to photograph. It was a rush, sitting down and chatting with someone who gets it. Because they've been there, done that, seen it all before just like you have.
On my way home yesterday, I thought, "Y'know, that was nice" and made it a point to befriend more creative people. It's not that I don't love any of current friends, but man sitting and talking with someone for half an hour about the thing that they're as passionate about as you are: nothing compares to it.
