Firstly, huge congratulations on your engagement. I remember those light-headed days of wandering around venues, searching for florists and thinking about colour schemes. Exciting and slightly overwhelming are probably the two phrases that come to mind when people ask you ‘How is the wedding planning going?’
And for some, the thought of how to choose the right wedding photographer can be a little scary. Having someone there with you all day, sharing those special intimate moments can feel a little strange. Which is why I pride myself on being as unobtrusive as possible on your special day.
Capturing all those little sparks of emotion that flash by so quickly. As you walk down the aisle I discreetly position myself to capture that first moment when your husband sees you for the first time. Pure emotion etched on his face – a moment you may miss amongst the nerves and concentration of walking down the aisle. But when you look back at your pictures you’ll be transported back to that moment. A small heartbeat of time from your day. Letting you relive all the excitement and emotions of your wedding day all over again. I’ll be capturing moments like this for you all day, quietly and discreetly from the sidelines. Most of the time you’ll forget that I’m even there.
Documenting those candid moments between the two of you is what I thrive on. That encouraging wink your new husband gives you as you’re saying your vows, a nervous giggle when you’re announced as ‘husband and wife.’ And your first kiss. Wow. Such special moments.
I am so privileged to be given this amazing role at so many weddings. And I would be hugely privileged to do the same for you.
