Like most wedding photographers I enjoy photographing shoes and flowers, cakes and dresses. I love a good celebration and love the atmosphere at a wedding. I enjoy designing albums, I like meeting all sorts of people, going to different locations, editing pictures and writing my blog.
But that’s not really why I do what I do.
I do it because I love people and am fascinated by what really makes us tick. I want to record the moment when you are arm in arm with your Dad at the end of the aisle and, with a tiny tear trickling down your cheek, you whisper “I love you”.
The second you catch a glimpse of yourself in that dress in the mirror and scream in delight.
I want to photograph your Mum and Dad holding hands in the front pew, your sister dancing with the new boyfriend she will marry in two years time, the moment you hug your friend who you haven’t seen in months. The frail hand of your grandmother’s in yours just a few months before she slips away.
I want to record your new husband looking nervously itchy in his posh suit waiting for you to arrive, his best man busting his coolest dance moves in the evening and your first kiss as a married couple. The look of love you have in your eye for the person with whom you want to grow old with.
I want to give you memories that you will carry through your life, that you will pore over with your children and your children’s children, spin stories with and use to weave the folklore of your family. Pictures to look at together after the worst row of your marriage that you will cry over and will carry you through. In the darkest of days when things are tough, I want them to be a reminder of joy.
Your wedding flowers will die, the cake be eaten, and over time the memories of the day will become fewer and more fleeting. On your Golden wedding anniversary when you look back and you see pictures of the last time you danced with your parents, the photo where you look almost exactly like your daughter on her wedding day, how much will those memories be worth?
Let me create a life time of your memories for just £0.084 per day.
