So this was an interesting one, our second last wedding of the season, starting to chill a bit more than you would like just after the sun dipped behind the hill to the west, and it’s one of my best friends from school days’ sisters wedding. Apparently they were quite surprised that I turned out a photographer, and I guess rightly so. I don’t think I ever really stood out as the creative one, and especially in high school I was more known for fishing than anything else. Reconnecting like this at a wedding is a bit like Facebook on steroids; delving into the lives of friends seen long ago, reconnecting memories, and discussing the current affairs of those who were also once part of the connection.
Erika looked stunning, and I couldn’t help but feel a burst of pride as I witnessed her and her team getting ready for the big moment. I guess the idea of sharing a small part of her life before the wedding (albeit a long while ago) made me realise again that this is a big moment for a family, and not just a compositional trick with fancy light.
In any case, in between the hugs, the handshakes and small talk, photographs had to be taken, and below is a collection of my favourites for the day. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
