In my experience as a wedding photographer, I found that there is one major concern that couples will usually share with me during our first meet-up. And that is “will be there enough materials to photograph if my wedding is simple?"
My answer, “hell yes!”
I don't deny that the number of things/events happening during the wedding day will affect the quantity of photos taken. But there are so many more elements of a wedding that a photographer can focus on. It’s never about the quantity of events but the quality.
To me, the meaning of quality is more than just beautiful decors and lavish setups. It is the raw emotions of human interactions - the laughter, the tears and the gratitude.
I truly adore simple weddings. The less cluttered the wedding day is, the more quality time the couple get to spend with their loved ones, and the less stress the couple will give upon themselves. This allows me to concentrate on the important moments, in order to capture the emotions of that big day so my couples can look back on these memories and relive them.
Mike and Zenne’s wedding was a straightforward one, consisting of the morning preparation, Buddhist solemnisation and lunch with their loved ones. And what I love about their wedding was the genuine emotions of the couple. They weren't shy to wear their hearts on their sleeves. I felt touched that I had the opportunity to witness these first-hand, and did my very best to capture every precious moment.
To the lovely Mike and Zenne, despite the short notice period of confirmation, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautifully simple wedding celebration, and for giving me my very first Buddhist solemnisation. I’m in love with it!
I wish you both a harmonious and blissful marriage.
