When we started choosing our favourite images of 2012 and realized:
1. Just how much fun we had with our clients this last year – Thank you so much!
2. Just how much our photographic eye has changed, our skills have grown, our passion has increased.
As we hand picked these images I was struck by how many “candid” images were dear to my heart. Moments where best friends cried together, a couple sneaking away to dance when no one was looking, onlookers reminiscing of days gone by. It reminded me of a consultation we had with a couple a few weeks ago. The couple asked us what our favourite part of the day to photograph was. A few years ago if I was honest, I would have said it was the Portrait session and detail images. These are after all, what we as Photographers live for…right…? Although I do still love the Portrait session with more posed shots, I realized that what I even love more are the unplanned, whimsical happenings.The scattered showers of love and chance that show up at every Wedding. My favourite shot, and the moment that the bride and groom will never see until they receive their photographs is the look in their parents eyes when the couple takes their first kiss. These are photographs I am proud of. They are the moments that can only be told through photos and that often the couple didn’t even know took place. It’s not a 30 second read, you might have to commit more attention than that – but its worth the time. These photos tells stories and evokes memories for those that we were privileged enough to share a sacred day with.
