Never in a million years would I imagine myself as a wedding photographer. I never thought to be the sentimental, lovey-dovey type guy but that has quickly changed over the past few weddings I’ve shot. With each shutter release my dream comes to life. Bringing happiness to a joyful couple and being trusted with their memories on such a momentous day is invigorating!
I compare photographing a wedding by myself as the sky-diving of photography. It is fast-paced, unforgiving and the best time of my life! From the moment I get there, to the moment I leave I am caught up in the same moment that the guests and maybe even the couple themselves are caught in. I love not only capturing the best moments of the day but also just observing the true love and compassion blossoming before my lens. I remember back to my first high-end wedding, my heart was racing the entire day with nerves and fear, as I began to take photos and see the photos I am producing throughout the day my nerves begin to calm down. However, in the midst of literally running around with a camera around my neck and a photo case being dragged around I found myself putting releasing my camera, holding it on my side and just watching some of the ceremony. The pure emotions and the ambiance of love brought tears to my eyes. A couple I did not completely know, was bringing tears to my eyes and it was then I knew that I loved my job and this new, invigorating chapter in my life.
Which brings me to this moment now, writing this blog post, working on my website and Facebook page for the upcoming wedding season. I cannot wait to tackle the upcoming season with ambition, determination and camera in hand. Seeing the smiles of my clients faces on their big day and then again similar smiles when I hand deliver their photos. Then also enjoying hearing from my clients to tell me how much they enjoyed their photos and how they cannot stop ranting and raving about them. It brings a smile to my face knowing I created those memories that they will hold for the rest of their lives and pass onto their children and grandchildren.
So it is without further ado, that I announce that booking for the 2015 year has now opened! I hope to hear from new and inspired clients!
