I am a girl that has learnt that life is to be spent doing something you are passionate about.
I am truly honoured you are considering me to photograph your wedding. Some call it the most important day of your life but I truly believe it is a marker for an even more important, exciting time of your life. There will be days that exceed it in importance as you experience new things for the first time together, struggle through difficulties together, and learn to have a greater understanding about love together. I am delighted to be considered out of the talent that surrounds me to document your day.
I realize that you have considered me as a photographer because you value being able to look at these images in years to come. I realize that your wedding without me there would be just as amazing (although I promise to try to add just a touch more amazingness and hopefully some reassuring words or tips here and there).
At the end of the day, all you need are the two of you and an officiant. Most will prioritize their closest family and friends soon after that, maybe followed by delicious food and drinks or a beautiful dress or never before seen details that will make the wedding blogs come running. I want you to know that I love what I do because it is two people who are promising to love each other dearly for the rest of their lives.
I will want to learn pretty much everything about you two as a couple. I will adore you as a couple regardless of the extent of detail at your wedding. I will give you my honest opinion on which earring better suits the dress. I will probably laugh ridiculously hard at the best man’s speech. I will tell the story of your day through the grand events and the subtle moments.
I want to honestly and unobtrusively document you celebrating your wedding day together.
