Wedding story part three
Thankfully, a change is swirling in the air around the wedding photography industry. The move towards photojournalism is bringing with it a change towards letting go of being in control. a change towards allowing the bride and groom to express their individuality by creating their own ceremony within the bounds of whatever religion they choose, without us “professionals” trying to force them into out own overworked perception of what a wedding should be.
We must remember that the bride and the groom hired us to create a beautiful record of their wedding, not to create the wedding itself. We must also remember that the purpose of a wedding is to announce publicly the couple’s agreement to be bound together as a family for the rest of their lives, and contrary to what some photographers seem to believe, a wedding is not a photo shoot.
In writing this blog, my wish is that new generation of photographers will continue the current trend of working in a more discreet fashion throughout the wedding day.
I am looking forward to capturing the beauty and emotion of the day without spoiling its uniqueness by trying to control it.
