When I’m chatting about wedding photography with my Clients they often ask me if I had any learnings from my own wedding day. Now to put this into context my marriage to the very awesome Mr NKP is now well and truly into its second decade so this all happened a long time ago. And long before I thought about becoming a wedding photographer.
Well over a decade on and I still adore Mr NKP! He’s my rock. And when we got married we were right at the beginning of the trend for documentary wedding photography which is what we all love now and what is really the norm in wedding photography.
I also wasn’t a professional wedding photographer back then. I loved photography but didn’t have a clue when it came to wedding photography. And why would I? I had never organised a wedding before. I had no idea what to look for and what questions to ask.
Did we have high expectations? Not really if I’m honest! Neither of us love having our photograph taken and are known for avoiding the camera!
However what we did want were gorgeous photographs of us on our wedding day. A collection of images to treasure for the many decades of marriage we hope to have.
Did we get that? No we did not! We were absolutely gutted.
Deep breath… I’m going to share with you my mother of all wedding photography stories. Let my mistakes be the road map to make your wedding day awesome…
