This is my nephew sweeping his new bride off her feet during their wedding dance.
I had the privilege of being the “official” photographer at their wedding and I had a ball. Having done a handful of these I once again found it a full on experience where I learned that I knew less than I thought I did. I have huge respect for photographers who do this week in and week out to run a successful business.
Everyone is pleased with the results and I am proud to have produced a set of images telling a story that will be remembered for many years.
Looking at the pictures I have been thinking that it is really in this sort of image that photography excels. Many other art forms can convey feelings and ideas that we tell of in “arty” photographs but only photography can express the fluid emotions on the faces of happy, or sad for that matter, people.
I am reminded of an often quoted whakatauki
He ahu Te meal Te ao?
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!
What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people!
