Happy New Year!
As 2013 rolls into 2014, we get to sit down and look through our entire body of work throughout the last year and put together a new portfolio. However, after making over 80,000 wedding photos in 2013 it can be pretty daunting and time consuming. As wedding photographers its important that we not only gauge our progress, but also take an introspective look at the images that we are consistently making.
Maybe it’s a little bit corny to focus on the philosophy behind why we make the photos we make, but we take our work seriously and we are always striving to be better photographers. It’s our job to be the visual record keeper, but we also have to maintain a creative edge. And when we have the opportunity to speak about our work, it’s our approach to the wedding day that is always a major talking point. But we are visual people and a picture used to be worth a thousand words, but maybe with inflation and digital technology a picture is worth a couple hundred thousand words, I don’t know, I’m not that great at math. So in the next series of blog posts I’m going to attempt to discuss and show some images that highlight what we photograph and why.
What really set weddings apart, from anything else in the photography world, is the joy that we have the opportunity to witness. These are just a few of the smiles, laughs and tears of joy that make this job so amazing. We get to experience the happiest day in peoples’ lives and the photos below represent a small fraction of what we saw throughout last year.
