Finally sharing some BIG news on the blog today!
I am SO excited to finally announce that I am officially full time with Tonemedia!! Can you say, #allthefeels?!
When we started Tonemedia just 3 years ago, we could have never imaged that it would grow into the amazing thing it is today. Seriously, still trying to figure out how perfectly this all fell into place. In the past few years, Tonemedia has organically grown by word of mouth and referrals into this amazing dream of a job. What makes this journey even more special to us is all of the relationships we have built along the way- with couples, families, clients, photographers and other creatives in the industry, whom in which we call our friends. That is one part of our job that we cherish the most!
I am a big believer that everything happens for a reason; and I know now that "one of my reasons" in this life is to tell amazing stories through the art of video. Whether that is through capturing a wedding day, a couples love story, family milestones or even creative business promos. My heart is in storytelling. It is the perfect creative outlet for me that my mind is hungry for! As some of you may or may not know, my background is actually in Interior Architecture. That is what I went to school for and then eventually worked my way up to work for one of the top architecture firms in the world. But sometimes God has other plans for you and life takes you in a different direction. And for that, I am truly thankful.
Let's face it, there is no hiding that I am a perfectionist- so I am always striving for perfection. But I am also always pushing myself to better and improve my craft. Whether that means doing something differently or looking at something in a different perspective. It keeps my creative juices flowing, inspires me and allows me to be a better version of myself every time.
Working with my husband, Justin, has been a true blessing. I know, I know- we get the "you work with your husband? I would never be able to do that!" phrase all the time. But to be totally honest with you, we work perfectly together. Maybe even too perfect! We feed off of each others energy and creativity. What I lack he provides and what he lacks, I provide. We love…love! And I can guarantee you every time we deliver a video to our couple, I have tears pouring out of my eyes! Maybe it’s because it reminds me of our wedding day and the love we share for each other throughout these past 13+ years of being together. Maybe because we get to remind couples and families what there wedding day was truly about; love and family.
Justin and I have found our true passion in this life. I feel truly blessed that I get to live out my dream job- documenting history, capturing moments into memories and telling one of life's greatest love stories. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Here's to continuing this amazing journey, new adventures ahead and never looking back!
A BIG thanks to the very talented Mekina Saylor for all the amazing photos!!
