A moment, once captured is an eternal memory.
Never under estimate
the value of your photographs.
I have been asked a
lot in my time as a photographer :
“Why?” – “what is it that attracts you to weddings and photography in
Well the answer for me
is quite simple
“A moment, once
captured is an eternal memory”.
The smile on a loved
one's face, that look of pride when Daddy
sees his daughter for
the first time on her wedding day,
that sheer joy as a
mother and child play in the garden together,
the passion and love
that burns between a newly engaged couple,
memories of all the fun stuff we do with our loved ones.
In a moment of despair
and sadness, in the tragic circumstances
of losing a loved one,
where do we go to remember??
First we dig deep into
our sad, foggy and emotion-filled memory
to try to remember
The smiles, the cheeky
looks, the laughter, the love they had for us
and the love we have
and when we cannot
seek all the memories we are chasing…..
we head straight to
At the click of a
mouse or the opening of a book our memories
flood back towards us,
bringing us joy, happiness, yes – sadness too,
but the relief you
feel inside when you come to realise that you don’t have to
dig to find these
they are right there
in front of you and they are eternal,
you can see every
emotion and feeling and thought that was captured
just for you in that
moment in time.
As a photographer –I
deem it my duty, for my friends (clients) to ensure that
when I am working with
them that I capture every memory possible.
I want them to know in
their hearts that should they face that terrible time
of needing to dig deep
for their memories that they wont have to look far.
It makes my heart
smile and I shed a tear anytime I know that I have captured
memories that I know
are helping a family through their grief and sadness.
