Over the past decade while mastering the skill of being an award winning wedding photographer, I embarked on a life long path of transformation and one of the key distinctions I have cultivated may be the key to you having the wedding of your dreams. It is the fine art of receptivity and it has transformed my experience of joy in the world and my ability to look and feel great in photos. It started in 2001, the launch of wendy k yalom photography along with a daily yoga practice. Through my yoga practice and the guidance of a series of extraordinary teachers, I came to discover myself to be a far greater person than I had imagined myself to be. As the Patanjali Yoga Sutra promises –
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
My great purpose was to fully experience and appreciate the richness of life and love and somewhere in the midst of inspiration and possibility, I decided to master the fine art of receptivity. What I didn’t expect in becoming highly receptive to the beauty and brilliance of my life was a positively wonderful experience of myself in photographs.
