I’ve always steered clear of wedding photographer, the pressure in relation to the big day seemed daunting. I have shot a few weddings for friends and not really taken the feedback on board, but when one tells you your photos were better than the professional wedding photographer they paid thousands for, maybe I should have sat up and listened then. But I didn't.
Today I have the absolute honour of photographing a dear friends parents Vow renewal, 34 years to the day and time since they were married, and I think the timing is right to look at this is as the potential beginning in to Wedding Photography. I have hired a beast of a lense (Nikon 70/200) and I think I will cry when I have to send it back.
Newborn Photography has been my passion and forte for the past 3 years and will continue to be, but if I can be lucky enough to enjoy today as much as I hope I do, then I will be excited to embark on expanding Helene Simpson Photography further :-)
