Wedding Photography Musings

Being a wallflower armed with a camera is my calling in life.

I don’t ask for poses, I don’t manoeuvre and manipulate life to look beautiful. I wait, ready, for when life is beautiful and I take that moment and share it with people.

It’s not easy to aspire to be self employed, never mind in a saturated industry such as photography.

I know I can’t just graduate, get a studio, magic up some clients and start living my dream. I’m not deluded. I am very well aware that I’ll be working minimum wage jobs to support myself for the majority of my life but I am more than prepared to do so.

Showing somebody a photograph of themselves that they genuinely love is the best feeling, I can’t describe it. In this society where most people are comparing themselves to celebrities, social influencers, models etc, it’s almost impossible to be happy with your appearance. Blessing a person with even just one photograph that they can keep for the rest of their lives and feel nothing but joy when they look at it is what I want to do forever.

  • […] Charlotte & Lee’s wedding photos! I finally finished them, handed them over and received the best feedback I’ve ever had from photographs. They’re so happy with them which makes me love the images even more, I’m so proud of myself! My last post was a very honest post about photography, especially weddings, feel free to check it out here. […]

  • Gorgeous pictures! I am just starting to really play with my camera more now that I’m taking photographs for the marching band that I work at as a music instructor. I think I have found a new hobby, although I give SO much credit to those of you who make the effort to make it a career!

    • That sounds amazing! Thank you, it means a lot to me when people actually recognise how much hard work we do, it’s not just setting a camera on auto and taking photos of fields hahah x

      • Photography is a skill! I take photos for the marching band I work with and I have tried a few times to explain to people the challenges in taking pictures of the group on parade when we are all moving at the same time!
