I do love a wedding. And if you ask me to do your wedding photos I’d be delighted, and also honoured. Because I realise both how special that day is, and that it is important to catch the emotions and beauty and joy of the day. Partly because memories fade, partly because there will be people who can’t make it to the big day, and partly because the happy couple won’t be able to see everything on the day. The bride won’t see the groom waiting for her arrival. The groom won’t see her having her veil adjusted as she gets out of the car. Maybe neither will see the bridesmaids playing in the corner. But they can see photos of it all later.
So having established some of the reasons for wedding photography, and valued its importance, I want to make sure I can do my very best for each and every couple. With that in mind I went on a workshop about wedding photography this weekend. This gave me the chance to refresh skills, learn new ones, pick up tips and learn about trends. All of which will make me better prepared for future weddings.
It was a good event, and very useful. The lovely Ms S and Mr M modelled in a variety of poses, including sitting on a bridge, a wall and the floor. We did miss most of the rain, but the weather wasn’t great, so thanks to them for their patience outside in the cold. I’ve got lots to reflect on and am really looking forward to my next shoots. I hope you like these pics in the meantime. And if you, or someone you know, is getting married then please do get in touch – I’d love to discuss your plans with you and see if I can give you a beautiful set of photos to help you remember your special day.
