Today I got to photograph a wedding with Steven Leonard Photography. My job was to get candids of everyone, and I spent most of the time with the bride.
I was scrolling through my settings to see how much memory I had left, (I never had checked it before, but since this was official I wanted to be sure), and somehow I DELETED ALL THE IMAGES. Yep, you read correctly. All 100+ priceless WEDDING day photographs GONE.
I felt faint. It is hours later and I still feel HORRIBLE. Luckily they were not the main photographs, but still. Mr. Incredible and I are about to go out because I HAVE to get my mind off of this, otherwise I will not be able to sleep tonight!
Driving home, right after I messed up royally, I was in tears asking God why this happened. It is odd, when terrible things, (death etc), happen I don't question God cause I know they are for His glory. But why did I have to lose the pictures that to the bride were priceless, and to me helped give me experience and somewhat of a portfolio? Well, the only thing I can think of is that this is to teach me humility.
I had to humble myself enough to tell Steve of my mishap. I had to humble myself to admit it on here. This experience was a huge reminder how truly imperfect I am. We all mess up. I just happened to mess up big time.
I usually don't post without pictures, but obviously there will be no pics this time. :/
