WHY WE LOVE WEDDINGS

PREVIOUS / NEXT

WEDDING by KRISS on 10 october 2015

So what is it that makes photographers want to go into wedding photography ? Money ? Perhaps but really do you think you can actually keep doing a good job trying to capture unique memories, important moments for strangers if your only concern is your wealth ?

I don’t think so and this is certainly not the reason that had us shooting wedding.

Many years ago now, Kate and I met and we got married.
We did that on our own with only a few friends around and no family.
Our wedding was our sacred temple, the most important symbol of our love, of our unity and we felt at that time this only belonged to ourselves.
oh, of course both families went nuts when they found out and it took a few years to round the edges but this is a decision we never regretted.
In fact, it was a life saver for us because we have this guardian of our love, of who we are and when we got lost on our path of life, remembering where we came from made things so clear and obvious for us.

Love is everything, our love is everything and your love is everything to us.

We got married on a a budget where a photographer was out of the question and we have very few crappy photos of our wedding.
Fortunately some of them are in focus lol !

When we got into photography, we never thought we would ever shoot weddings but this was brought to us unexpectedly.
A friend of ours was getting married and he hired us.


There we were, never having shot a wedding before, for my part I had only attended a few weddings and didn’t even know all there is to know about the traditional happening of a wedding day.
But it didn’t matter.
What mattered was that we were sure about one thing.
We had to deliver them photos that would touch their feelings, images they would be proud of showing to their friends and family, photos they would never get tired of looking at and perhaps the famous life savers that would one day come in handy if they got lost along their way.

Today, we have shot more weddings than we can count and we have a serious training on all the technicalities we didn’t have at the beginning.
This allows us a better workflow, more fun while shooting and a true sharing of the moment with our grooms and brides.

But above all, what still keep us going, why we still have the crave to cover weddings is that we know that we will certainly get to meet two lovers who are scared or anxious, who have little experience of sharing a life with each other sometimes, who have plenty of questions buzzing in their heads.
And we know that somehow through our shooting their special day, through our presence, our talking to them, perhaps to you, at the privileged moments we share during preparations for instance, we will get to them that their love is what counts, despite any mishaps on the day.

So many couples have entrusted us with their stories and this is something we are proud of and cherish.

And this is why Kate and I still love weddings, besides the beautiful photography, the dress, the miraculous contrasts, the emotion in the pictures.
We get to share a very important moment of your life story with you and we are the one whose responsibility is to immortalize that moment.
