So You’re Looking for a Wedding Photographer? Part 2
The Look of Love
I am a lucky guy . . .
Call me a late bloomer but I didn’t date until after I left home at 18 years old. The girls I took out were very nice but not into me as much as I was into them. I’ve never been an angel but I’ve also never been the bad boy they were looking for either. We simply weren’t each other’s types.
Being the loner that I have always been, I can honestly say that I’ve never really felt lonely, never rushed into finding love, and never played around but from as far back as my adolescence I certainly did pray to God that I would find someone truly compatible when it was my time.
I’ve always been well aware of how hard it is to find the right person to share life with, and I know I have my own peculiarities. That’s why I always knew that I needed a woman who would take me seriously, and needed me to do so in kind.
Meeting Kim is one of the greatest experiences of my life. She’s the first and only woman to accept me with all the quirks and fanciful ideas that I have, and is pleased to know that I accept her in exactly the same way. Out of all the men in the world, she chose me. Incredible! We courted for several years before getting married, and we tied the knot when it was right.
She once told me that she feels personally responsible for the amount and quality of happiness that people experience in life. She even meant complete strangers, and for all the years that I’ve known her she demonstrates exactly that compassion each and every day. That’s just one more important reason why I know that I have the best girl. She is so rare and noble in character.
Her love is so rare. I need her. She is worth every bit the wait that I endured. Sure it’s cliché but we know our love is genuine just by looking into each other’s eyes and faces, and from the way we touch and finish each other’s sentences. From time-to-time, we wonder how we’ll be when we’ve grown old. We take on all the challenges of life that are thrown at us with a firm grasp of each other’s hands. Our life together is a profound adventure.
This strength of love; manifested in sentiments, behaviour and intimate moments, is what I look for when I do wedding photography. It’s as personal an experience for me as it is for the couple getting married. I aim to make each image proudly display the connection they have with each other, and that their families and friends have with them as they step into their future together. The look of their love captured in still photography.
