After 2 months looking for the place for us, we only just confirmed our Wedding this week for Now Jade in May 2013 and we are both so excited!! Mark & I will be travelling over to Mexico from little old Ireland for our 'wedding-moon' on our own. After much thought, we decided we would both love a beach wedding & to venture a little further afield for our special day. We also decided that we just wanted it to be the 2 of us, as it is our special day and it will be so much more personal and romantic. We had toyed with the idea of some immediate family coming, but for a few reasons, that's not going to happen.
We are very happy with our decision & our family & friends are happy for us and very supportive. As no-one will be there with us to share our special day, we really want to have the photos to tell the story of our day as it unfolds.
I am a photographer myself, so a wedding photographer, to me, would be one of the necessities of our wedding day I love to take natural, candid, un-posed shots, so that is the way I would like our day to be captured. I want someone to capture the emotions - the happy tear, the anxious wait, the little details, the stunning backgrounds, the beautiful turquoise of the ocean & blues of the sky, the rich colours of nature. I'd love for Mark to see me excitedly getting ready and I'd love to see him, waiting anxiously for me, but the only way that can be done is if someone captures those emotions on camera. As soon as we had decided on Mexico, I immediately started looking at Wedding Photographers there, as not every photographer captures images in a photo-journalistic style that I love. Mark is happy to go with whatever I decide as he knows how passionate I am about photography.
Life through a lens is amazing, you can see so many things in such different ways. I love how photographers can see things not everyone else can and also, make beautiful everyday things that not everyone would readily see the beauty in.
