Imagine you’re a doctor – what do you do when you have to treat a doctor? Or if you’re a teacher when you find out that the parents of every child in your class are teachers. You’ll have some idea of how I felt last Friday.
Groom? Professional wedding photographer.
Bride? Professional wedding photographer.
Guests? A heady blend of pro and semi pro photographers – and what appeared to be the groom’s entire camera club.
So I decided I had to up my game a little
Let’s start with all those lovely details. The tiny things that make the day.
One of my clients told me last week that I have a style that’s very like a film – and I realised it’s true. I always love the shots that spark memories and place you right back exactly where you were and exactly how you felt on the wedding day.
I don’t think Marianne needs the entire picture here to remind her that it was Barry she was marrying – just the reminder of how fantastic he looked in his suit with perfectly co-ordinated flowers.
And certainly nobody there could forget Mavis’ hilarious reading from “With Great Pleasure” by Alec Reid. But in case they did then just the words “Hopeful Proposal to a Young Lady of the Village” should do it….
Mind you – you can’t go a whole wedding on just details. We really had to go over to the golf course for the best light and backdrops….
It’s slightly hard to read on the web version – but the message here is “For Keeps”. And you could just tell they meant it.
