There was a moment that I witnessed between Angela and Clive at their wedding that really brought home what my job is all about. While they took a break for themselves and cuddled up on a sofa away from all the guests they chatted about the day and took a ‘selfie’ on Clive’s phone. It was a brief moment of calm away from the throng and whatever your feelings about selfies, which seem to have become such a part of our modern vernacular, being present to document this fleeting instance where they were so comfortable in each others company and very much in love was a true insight into their relationship together.
As I look back through their photos their were dozens of moment like this throughout the day, where I was witness to this wonderful connection between Clive and Angela. When their eye’s met during the ceremony, Clive’s hand clasping Angela’s as the listened to the registrar, Angela’s gentle touch of Clive’s arm during his speech, Angela beaming with happiness as Clive held her for a portrait, and so on. These moments of love where people connect on a level that’s unconditional and beyond the ordinary are what really inspire to photograph people and weddings. On a course quite a few years ago a great photographer and mentor Huy Nguyen told me that our job as a wedding photographer was to ‘show love’ and to this day that rings through my mind at every wedding I shoot.
Thank you Angela and Clive for inviting me to to be a part of your wedding and believing in me to create a document of your love for you.
