No-one knows more than I do how priceless your pictures are. My dad, (although I love him dearly!), was (and believe me still is!) far too tight to ever pay for a photographer! So my parent's wedding and our births were never recorded on film. I would love to be able to show my own daughter pictures of me when I was little and of her Nana and Grandad on their big day as it's hard to believe now that they where ever young!
Unfortunately the story of my parents wedding, those who were there with them and are sadly not with us any more can never be recaptured.
So that is why to be invited in to your lives to capture these moments for you is a gift. Once all the flowers have wilted and the honeymoon is over, the real gift will be those captured memories.
Those moments that someday won't be just a story, but a priceless family heirloom that your great grandchildren can treasure.
