The Maples Woodland Autumn Midcentury Modern-inspired Wedding by Valley Images Photography Emily and Mikey

Today’s tip comes from Michelle Hewitt, Owner Valley Images Photography:

Don’t Lose Focus

Valley Images Phootography“Remember: it’s still your wedding and it’s still a huge moment in your life. Don’t lose focus on the whole reason for the event in the first place—the love you share with your partner. It’s a hard lesson for a lot of couples, but life really does just ‘happen.’ And when it does, having that partner—whether or not you’ve said ‘I do’ yet—by your side to get you through it is the best feeling in the world. The pandemic will end, but your love for each other won’t, and you have to stay focused on that.”







We agree, Michelle. Check out Valley Images Photography to find out more about their services!
