A groom recently booked me. And I said thank you, as I always do to my clients. He responded and said: “I hope to say thank you to you as well when the pictures are out. You need to make my ugly face fine even if it’s not looking fine that day. I have seen you do it before, I’m sure you will do it again. I was touched with that statement.
That’s the kind of inspiration I need to give my best. Truly we’ve got different clients. I’ve been opportuned to capture various groom and brides including those who ain’t couples. I can tell you that It’s a different game each time. As photographers, we are always saddled with creating different themes, different feels and outlook.
But all this isn’t just about me the photographer. The clients also have a say in this. I’ve had different experience where we are running late for the church or the florist didn’t deliver the bouquet on time. Or something just got the bride in a bad mood. Believe me, if you don’t know how to manage the situation well, it might just ruin the whole day.
My wedding day storytelling is reserved for the discerning client who appreciates style and for whom photography is a high priority. After you’ve spent a fortune on the venue, the dress, the food, the makeup artists, the invitations, the wedding gown and everything else, the only thing left as a reminder of the day are your photographs.
Don’t you think it is ideal to invest in this aspect of your wedding that will preserve the moment as memory? What are your thoughts? Please share with me.
But before I go I’d leave you with this shot from the recent engagement shoot I had with Jennifer and Olufemi. Full post coming to the blog in few days. Watch out for it.
