Weddings And Why I Bloody Love Them.
November 15, 2016
It’s one thing being invited as a guest to a wedding and it’s another as a photographer.
I am a complete soppy romantic when it comes to weddings. Two people entirely dedicating their hearts to one another and then to invite all their nearest and dearest to experience what is meant to be one of the most special days in their lives.
Traditionally wedding photography consisted of a documentation of the day and it’s happenings.
Now we are able to tell the day as a beautiful story. Now, quite commonly, the bride and groom will prepare their day as as the fairytale that so many brides dreamt about as a child. A woodland, lake, barn, beach or outdoor weddings decorated with fairy lights, foliage, horse and carts and messages in little corked bottles.
It’s one things being invited to a wedding as a guest, it’s another as a photographer.
As a photographer, I am very visual. I look for things that please the eye and succeed in the outcome.
I have been very lucky to experience some of these fairytales with true childhood romance.
Today isn’t traditional, today isn’t ruled, today is contemporary, daring and best of all, today is parchment and pen.
