My Journey as a Professional Wedding Photographer

Weddings are special events and that is why I put in lots of hard work and efforts to provide my brides and grooms with the best possible photography. I love people and shooting their photos. I like to be a part of someone’s special day and reach on time being a true professional. Recently, I was capturing Claire & Karl’s wedding when a gray haired person came to me and asked: What makes great and soulful marriage photographs? Well, it is your love, hard work and passion that encourage shooting the best photos. Photography that believes in capturing unique nature and personality of the bride or groom, their emotions, their personal connection, their journey through the day will deliver the best.

Important Message to Aspiring Wedding Photographers

As an experienced photographer, I feel that one needs to documents couple’s journey, their story, love, emotion, fun, tear, hugs and important scenes of church and lovely images of brides and groom getting dressed, without missing  any single crucial moment.  If someone works that way, I bet, he/she will be able to shoot unique images. I started shooting weddings for friends and relatives and quickly fell in love with wedding photography. It was very difficult to set up this type of business. It was not easy to get accepted and know how to talk to clients, build a website and start blogging. But I loved the moments and the challenges, worked under huge pressure and successfully dealt with ups and downs.

And I have done all this because it was my dream to be the best wedding photographer. I always love learning new things. You cannot just copy what everybody is doing, since you are selling yourself and your art, your time, talent and skills; you need to be very reliable professional. You need to be happy, caring, emotional, hard working, friendly, social and talkative to taste the success. Remember, during the peak season you will be working nonstop for long hours, but you will be your own boss. Though there are times of high pressure and stress in wedding photography, I am enjoying improving my skills, creating the best pictures and building my reputation.  I find photography a rewarding career.

Early this month, I met couple to be Marie & James at Marriott Hanbury Manor in Ware and talked about their marriage details. I am looking forward to taking more great wedding photographs and creating that gorgeous imagery full of emotion ahead.  I will soon post some of best pictures of weddings coming my way this year. Watch out for my next wedding pictures within few days.
