“Oh no, that’s probably too hard!” I said. “Not as hard as you think! Here, take some of my magazines to read and tell me you get the point!” she smiled and handed me thick glossy magazines. There I was, sitting in a comfy chair of my friend’s home office chatting about her photography hobby. There was a ‘nice’ camera in my possession too but I never bothered to learn more and get off Auto mode till my friend challenged me. The decision to give it a try came quick and the Photography World started to open its secrets to me day by day. To say I was amazed is to say nothing. I was mesmerized! That was 4 years ago… Learning different aspects of this trade is a fun and fulfilling journey! Now I’m thankful to my wonderful friend for giving me a push into something outstanding that changed my life forever! (Oksana, yes, it is you I’m thankful to!)
WHY WEDDINGS? The precious snuggle moments with a person of your dreams, the tears in your mom’s eyes when she’s helping you put on the most beautiful wedding dress ever, the sweet giggles of your girlfriends who are the bridesmaids you dreamt about since high school, the smiles on your guests’ faces when the most precious flower girl is walking down the isle, your magical first kiss at the wedding you imagined since being a little girl…. All those are the moments and emotions I want you to be able to relive even 50 years after you Big Day, looking at the photos of your wedding.
