When I was a kid and teenager, it seemed like I was constantly doing things that are “scary”. Learning to ride a bike, jumping off the high dive, starting high school, giving a speech in class, taking the SAT’s, moving to college. Tons of big events that gave me butterflies in my stomach.

But now, life seems much more comfortable. With age comes confidence, and I rarely have to do things that make me nervous.

Until we started our own wedding videography business, and I decided to offer photography…

I cannot TELL you how nervous I get before photographing a wedding. Filming weddings is easy peasy. Shawn’s the main boss and directs everything, and I’m just back up. Plus, we have a lot of camera’s filming that are on tripods, so there is the safety of backup footage. But photography? That is all me. Shawn is still filming the wedding, and we aren’t really able to help each other. It feels like we’re both walking 2 tight ropes next to each other without a safety net below. Sometimes I question our sanity!

The nerves set in in about 1 week before. I continually go over the timeline, and read thru my shot list over and over and over. The night before the wedding I am in a haze. It feels like I am floating thru the day. I keep looking at the clock and thinking, “Ok, I bet in 23 hours from now we’ll be done and driving home. I just have to make it thru 23 hours.” Please tell me you all do that too.

On Saturday we filmed and photographed a wedding, so this past week I have been a bundle of nerves. But guess what? It all went great! We did it, and we did an amazing job. I’ve already started editing the pictures, and I am so proud of them. I guess I work myself up for nothing.

So last week with all of my nerves, I stuck with tried and true simple recipes that I know will turn out great every time. One of my go to vegetable side dishes lately are these rosemary roasted sweet potatoes. I’m trying to avoid white potatoes, and using sweet potatoes instead has been a great substitute. Not only do they have more flavor than a white potato, but they are packed with vitamins and minerals!
