I was recently in Victoria to photograph a maternity session for my other passion, Baby Bliss Photography, and it brought back a tonne of memories on my road to becoming a Kelowna Wedding Photographer.. I saw one of the locations that I used for my very first Wedding and I had to smile….although my style and talent has grown over the past 9 years, the anticipation and excitement I get in the pit of my stomach right before a Wedding starts, remains. I am always excited, nervous and curious as to how the day is going to unfold. I then always race home to start importing them into my computer to see what we created and to pick out the images that stand out to me. Those stand out images usually demonstrate a great moment, glance or location when everything comes together for a split second and it is captured forever in time with the click of a button.
I think what keeps my passion alive for Wedding Photography, is that I am capturing a relationship that will be recorded for all time and will be then passed down on through the generations. Even when we are gone, our images will remain and I am creating a historical record of a couple that lived, laughed and loved each other so much that they couldn’t wait to get married. And I am the honoured guest who gets to witness it all and put my artistic, creative spin on it.
Having returned home, I was curious to see some of those first Weddings in Victoria. I hadn’t seen the images for a long time. 9 years in fact. It was interesting to see that although I am obviously much more proficient and confident, some of the things I was trying to accomplish back then are still a part of my style today. Details images, having fun with my clients, finding a gorgeous backdrop and getting some fabulous portraits of my bride and groom.
The art of being a Kelowna Wedding Photographer will always be evolving and changing and I look forward to seeing what inspires me and how I create that art, 10 years from now.
