Be Daring, Be Different!!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting up again with one of my forth coming September weddings for their Engagement Shoot. The very lovely Sam & Joe.
We talked through their upcoming wedding and how it was going to be AWESOME. For them no church or registry office. Just a load of friends, a binding ceremony conducted by a close friend. There may be alcohol too. Most certainly there will be dancing. Joe’s a DJ and both him and Sam love their music. Its going to be a lot of fun.
Joe & Sam looked at a lot of wedding photographers (so they told me) and chose me! It’s a great thing to hear.
“You’re not like the rest”
They said they chose me because of a recommendation but the main reason was that I was “different”.
I love this. I can be paid no higher compliment.
I showed them something different. There were no grooms jumping and clicking their heels. No spot colour (don’t ask!), there was no white vignetting. It looked DIFFERENT. It looked great!!
Now thats not to say I wont capture all the details of their wedding. I do. I will. Go see my reviews on here or on Facebook. I get it all. But with a smile. Some might say a swagger. There’s always a lunge!
We headed off to a nearby orchard that Joe knew of. We had 15 minutes left of sun. It was quick and fun. I messed about with the ring of fire and also a prism. I love the results. I know they will too.
As Cecil Beaton said
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
Let me know what you think.
