Early New Years resolution – blog weddings on a regular basis. I’m not sure why it seems to be such an issue (ha), but I’ll work on it. One possibility behind the psychology of not blogging weddings is in the details. Details… if you visit the wedding blogs out there, they are so heavily detail oriented and I’m just not. I’m people oriented. I shoot the details while I am at a wedding, however; I focus on the people and the moments they share together. Whether it is the session alone with the bride and groom, the mother/son dance, or even the engagement session… I photograph people. It’s what I love.
Here’s my typical blog bomb of images. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry 🙂
so much more after the jump…
A message came in from a bride of mine who is expecting her first baby, so we’re planning a maternity session. Seniors of mine are becoming brides of mine. One person has been in four of the weddings I’ve done recently, either as a bridesmaid or the bride. Sisters. Entire families. Cousins. Adoption celebrations. Memorial images. Before I break into Elton John’s “The Circle of Life” or “Can you Feel the Love Tonight” – hmmm, why the Lion King theme?
I shot Mary-Anne’s wedding. I took her bother’s senior pictures. I took a few 1 year anniversary shots for Mary-Anne and her husband, Connor. We finished this 3-generation shoot, recently. I am a quiet, private person, however; personal investment in the lives and loves of my clients is just about the best part of this job. Not only does it show the clients’ satisfaction and willingness to hire me again (surface but important), it shows a developing trust that can extend for years (deep). I feel like these ladies speak volumes about the strength, love, and personalities they possess… so I’ll let them do just that. Some film, some digital. All family.
