Two people being all giddy, sweaty hands, shameless belly laughs. Thumb stroking cheek, joyful tears, and holding each other's gaze like no one's watching. Heart kicking, nervous ticks, bright eyes, a last peck of the lips. And then, the widespread smile of your partner after you roar: "I DO".
All this draws me in, camera to eye; beckoning like a bag of chips on movie night. (If that sentence doesn't make you fall in love with me, I don't know what will).
To put it simply, there is nothing quite like photographing genuine moments of heartfelt emotion. As fate would have it, there is a shit-tonne of that in, on, and around weddings.
WHAT IS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
1. The perfect third wheel without being a creep: "You guys make out, I'll just be here... taking photos..."
2. All-in-one: Help the priest down the steep stairs so the wedding actually happens. Thank me later.
3. Awkward comedian: To make everyone laugh on the group shots, dry jokes work the best. Sorry.
