So, I had this long post that poured out my heart in what would sound more like a creative speaking engagement and less like a blog post. And it was written in such a way that wouldn't fully honor what today is.
This announcement was scheduled today because it is the last day before our website goes offline due to the way we scheduled our payments so I figured it would also be a great day to make the announcement. But, discovered it was going to be tricky to write a clever post that might strip from what today is to many people. The day we'll Never Forget.
So instead, I'll just make the announcement.
Today is the official day that we are closing down Stark Love Photography.
It's time we moved away from using photography as a business, and just did photography because we love it. It's time to make way for other areas to come center stage. It's time we ended because it is on a good note.
We have come to love and respect our brides and grooms as friends and not just clients. We've had amazing clients and we're ready to leave it at that. Amazing.
We're also ready to put some other things first. And one of those things is our little family and what we as a family have felt called to do.
So, with no fancy post or creative poetic lingo (that I decided I'll at least save on a word document since it was SO GOOD) I'll finish off by answering the common question I know we'll get...
Yes. We'll still be taking pictures. I probably always will be because I love it. And I believe I am good at it. But not as a business, but more because I enjoy it and not because I need to in order to keep contract. I am terrible at business anyways ;)
So thank you to those who have believed in us! Thank you for those who have invested in us. We loved the experiences, the friends made, and the accolade given. We're proud of what we've done and how we've grown. Now it is time to focus on other areas that deeply need focusing! So thank you!
So before Stark Love finally departs, here's some of our absolute favorites (In no particular order)!
