Before becoming a wedding photographer, I did a few photo shoots for some major national and international magazine. Some of them are: Rolling Stone, Elle, FHM, Esquire, Go Girl, Bella Donna and a few others. I liked it but I felt that I did not belong to this kind of photography.
Then on day, a friend of mind asked me to do the photo shoot of his wedding. I really enjoyed doing the photo shoot and I realized that I fell in love with wedding photography.
Marriage is a life time commitment that I think should happen only once. I am a photographer who is married with 2 kids. I know the feeling of being in a wedding. The happiness, the love, the laugh and the new beginning of another life.
This is why I love taking photos of weddings. To see people with smiles of happiness, tears of joy and the whole day just makes me happy. It’s not because of the job, but I am happy to be a part of the weddings.
I have never seen a sad wedding ever in my life. And it should not be. It should be the happiest day of our life.
So, what could I ask more? I do what I love and people love what I do for them. In the future, while looking at their wedding pictures I take and tell the story to their kids, they will remember me. That’s what makes me feel special as a wedding photographer.
