It means the world to me that you've chosen me to capture your special day. If we've hung out at an engagement shoot and we've not celebrated your big day yet, I look forward to it and we have all that magic still to capture ! As for those of you whose epic day has already happened, you will know I like to get involved and be part of the day. Mums and Dads, I feel like part of the family when I capture you shedding a tear of joy watching your little girl all grown up getting married. Or when I capture a candid grin as you tell stories of how naughty the groom was as a little boy. To the groomsmen and bridesmaids, thank you for all the banter and having me in stitches goofing around.
Most of all I want to say thank you to the couples themselves. For being awesome appreciating my art and enabling me to have a job that I love. Being married myself I understand how precious those moments are and fun to look back on. It's a passion and not a job. I put 110% into every single wedding and meeting up with everyone before the big day is a big part of it for me. After a long day of running around lugging cameras and gear about, capturing the giggles, the smiles, the tears of joy and cwtchs my face hurts from smiling so much.
Thank you for making feel like the luckiest man for having a job that I love so much.
Here's a link to some galleries. I try and get a sneak preview up quickly before the full gallery goes up a bit later.
