The Perfect Shot

Riley

As a swimmer at UNCW, I only know one speed. Go.

So, I got my accounting degree. I’m going for my MBA. And now, I’m launching a wedding photography business. Seems weird, right? But photography’s my first love, and there’s a beauty in not wondering why or how it works. Like a cold pool at 5AM, I just jump in.

People often ask me how I manage it all, because there are no days off. Monday through Friday is my day job. Saturday’s wedding day. Sunday’s editing day. I suffer from wedding hangovers, too; not the alcohol induced kind, but the on-your-feet-for-twelve-hours-managing-mother-in-laws-and-nieces-and-nephews kind.

And you know what? I still love it. I can edit all the pictures I want, but I can’t edit my life. You only get one roll of film. Shoot wisely.
