Recently I attended a private dinner party with about 10 other guests. As I was mingling, I found myself standing with a sweet couple talking about what we all do for a living.
“I’m a photographer and I specialize in natural photos for online dating.”
They both looked at each other and giggled. When I asked what was so funny, they told me that they had just met two months ago and were very excited about their romance. And after a long search, trying to find someone special, they had met each other through online dating.
The woman in the couple then proceeded to tell me about several of her friends who had also met their partners online. As we were talking, another couple in the room added,
“We also met online.”
I know there are all sorts of amazing online dating statistics, but it’s always refreshing and exciting to meet success stories in the flesh. These living breathing examples of finding love online, breathe new life into my everyday work. I guess I am truly just a romantic at heart and I know I have a passion for helping people to show their best self in photos. It makes me feel so good to know that the work I do is actually making a difference out there and is helping to bring more love into people’s lives.
