Verity & Gavin, England Destination Wedding

I’ve never seen a first reaction to a slideshow I’ve made until this past October. I probably won’t ever forget it. I was exploring Scotland after shooting Verity and Gavin’s wedding in Chipping England, and Verity, Gavin and their girls Alice and Beatrice were on a family honeymoon in the very same place.  We sat cozy in a stone building probably older than the country of Canada in the city of Edinburgh, as a true Scottish downpour accosted the streets and tartan waterproofs outside. Warm in a coffee shop, the computer loaded and I forgot about the nerves of sharing my work as Alice waved her hands like an eight year old does as she told me tales of the Edinburgh zoo, penguins, and tree houses.

I’ve made close to if not about 30 slideshows this year between engagements, weddings and family shoots and I always email off a link. The hours I spend rearranging photos into a cohesive story to share are wrapped up with digital ribbon and sent into space. I get emails back – excited ones – and they make me smile, but that afternoon in Edinburgh, made me beam.

There was nothing like seeing Verity and Gavin in front of me, watch their wedding day from my perspective. There were tears from Verity, and as I sat and watched all four of their expressions as they watched the screen, I began to get teary as well. I remember so distinctively after a photo of Alice standing on her tippy toes to speak during the ceremony, Verity said in a quiet voice “oh Alice look at you on your tippy toes” and the next photo I had put into sequence was a tight shot of just that. Verity looked at me like I had read her mind, in photos.

It was the most gratifying moment in my wedding photography career, photography matters, and I felt like it was such a privilege to be there.

 

It was a wedding day, and a trip over the ocean I’ll never forget.

Thank you so much for having me Verity, Gavin, Alice and Beatrice.
