This year has been quite a bit about friends getting married - yap! I belong to that age group now - and of course I was asked to take photos of numerous weddings. Despite me not aiming to be a wedding photographer - I realised there is something I really like about the job.
What I like about it is of course freezing those precious moments - telling the story of a day that means so much for everyone involved. But it's tough, you carry a lot responsibilities and you never rest - because every second something can happen. And then you sit for days editing one grandma pic after another - that's why wedding photographers quite rightly ask for a good price. At least they should. And couples should not be cheap in their choices or ask a friend who happens to have a camera to carry that big load of pressure on their shoulders, it's (hopefully) a once in a life-time event - so better get the pros in.
Everyone so far loved the results as well - so I have a feeling I will do more of these in the future.
