T + H | Wedding
"Do you know how hard the photography business is?" I was asked one day, by an established photographer.
"Well, I know about the long, unconventional hours, and the competitive nature of the industry." I replied.
I graduated as a graphic designer and have seen my fair share of all nighters, where I've literally not slept. *FlashBack - HSC Textiles Major Work Submission*
I've concluded that I'm just more productive at night.
She's probably right. I don't know how hard the photography business is, especially the wedding photography business. But so far, I'm loving it and I'm willing to take the risk, treading unknown waters in unfamiliar territory, because that's the only way to learn and grow, in the deep end.
There are alot of people who think photography is no more than just pressing a button. "They're just photos," my significant other said. I could've swatted him. What else can remind you of how the groom looked when the bride walked down the aisle? Or what the flower girl was doing when no one was watching? Or the single tear of joy that was shed by the "macho" older brother of the bride. For me, it's not only the main attractions like 'The Kiss' or the 'Cutting of the Cake' which are important to capture, but also the smaller moments which are missed my majority of the people. For me, it's the little details.
