Photographs are what we leave behind as we age, our legacy – they are snapshots in time, which can take you right back to a particular moment, when your precious babies were small, when they held their arms up to you to be picked up, when all they needed to make them feel better were Mummy (or Daddy) cuddles. Often they can evoke the senses, much like a piece of music, and bring back the smell of the wedding cake, the feel of the brides dress against your skin, the butterflies before you walked down the aisle. It is such a precious thing, to have your day documented in an accurate way, which makes you feel happy and like you belong: to the family; to this day; to this life.
When you take the leap and decide to invest in a photographer for your event, do make sure you shop around a little – and I don’t mean price necessarily. As with all trades, photographers differ in style and personality, and there will be one that you feel fits you and your family best. So contact a few, have a chat, and check out their portfolio before making a decision.
Professional photography is not something you necessarily prioritise for a family event (except perhaps weddings), when there is the food to think of, the kids, and even aunty Joan (and yes, Uncle Bob) to think about. It’s all too easy to forget, or to think it is not important, and then end up disappointed. However, if you decide to invest in a photographer for your special event, and find someone whose work you are happy with, it can really make a day extra special and create memories that will last forever.
