It’s been quite a journey since Camilla first contacted me. Due to her father being ill and eventually passing away recently the wedding plans have changed quite a bit. Many things were uncertain but thankfully everything turned out beautifully.
So this wedding was a little more special to me because having lost a father at a young age I can relate to her and her family more than I can express. I was able to put myself in their shoes a little better and sense the emotions they might have been feeling.
As a wedding photographer I view what I do as serving my clients and their family. I didn’t become a wedding photographer to show up to weddings, snap photos and leave. I believe the best way to serve is to get to know them as much as possible in order to document and take meaningful photos that’ll last and hopefully touch their hearts. That’s what’s enjoyable and rewarding to me. And sometimes through this process our relationships grow deeper and we become friends and I love that.
Camilla and Richard, it’s joy to be around you and it’s a joy to serve you!
