When I first moved to Melbourne in 2007, I got a camera from a vintage shop as a birthday present. To my surprise, the camera had a roll of film inside. Curiosity got the better of me & I decided to develop the roll and learnt that the film was from the 1950s. In the roll of film were 6 images, 3 of which were wedding photos. This was one of the images.
Earlier this year, I was with a couple of friends having lunch and one asked, “How often do you look at your wedding photos Dave?”
Dave paused for a while, looked at his wife and said, “In the first year of marriage, quite often. But after that year, maybe twice a year?”
“But I imagine my kids would want to look at photos of us. Or maybe even your kids.”
And then it struck me.
Wedding photos are not just for the couple.
Wedding photos are for those we call friends & family, and for the loved ones that are yet to come. Looking at those few images that I chanced upon, my imagination kicks in and I find myself being transported into a different time and place. After which, I start to remember my own grandparents’ wedding photos, and the stories that accompanied it, & instantly, my heart is full. And I say to myself, this is why I want a story of my wedding day captured and sealed in time.
Maybe the words “wedding day” scare you a little. It might be because you don’t like being the center of attention. Or maybe it’s because you don’t like the fact that weddings can sometimes be a big show filled with obligations & meaningless traditions.
But you light up at the idea of all your closest friends & family being together in one place. And the very thought that your wedding is just going to be one big party puts a smile back on your face.
If that’s you, I hope we get a chance to connect, because we’d probably get along really well.
Wedding day coverage starts from A$550 per hour & packages start from A$4500, while Engagement sessions start from A$1000.
Every story is different, so don’t be afraid to say hello, and maybe we can design a package just for you.
