Ordinarily I would never take a picture of a bride smoking but it had been a more than usually tense morning and you could see from the shot that Clair had suddenly just relaxed. I looked good and hard at it when I was editing and eventually decided to include it in the 370 or so pictures I delivered. I reckoned if Clair hated it she could just throw it out.
She did hate it. But she didn’t just throw it out. She gave up smoking. I had an email from her the other day to say that in the 9 weeks since she saw that picture she hasn’t smoked a single cigarette. She even went as far as to suggest I should use it as therapy for future brides!
I don’t know about that – but I could always use it as blackmail :). So Clair, if you don’t want to see it posted here then keep on giving up!
