We – wedding photographer like to think of ourselves as storytellers. We are telling a couple’s love story. This is one of my favorite things about being wedding photographer. However, my expectation, perception and experience sometime make me to create something I want but not telling the couple’s story.
I was very excited when Kristie & Alan engaging me to take their pre-wedding photo in New Zealand. I was expecting to take some stunning natural scenery shots – something like I have seen on travel TV program. But after getting to know them more and listen their story, I know that it is not what they want. Kristie & Alan lived and studied in Auckland and they want to have their photo shoot where they met (School) and where is meaningful to them. So I just “let their story guide me and tell their story in a unique way” !!
