A Grey Day to remember

Yesterday was my last actual wedding day shoot. It was a tough day to shoot under grey skies but at least the rain held when I had to shoot outdoors. My clients Mark and Nellie were very pleasant to work with too. After hours of intermittent rain and the Justice of the Peace (JP) arriving late, the sky opened up to welcome the JP at 6pm, and the solemnisation was lit by a warm sunset. It was great for Mark and Nellie, and a great way to end my days of shooting weddings. Strange, but my last two bridal shoots were done under grey skies which opened up in the evening for the final section in Sentosa. Maybe it is nothing, but I hope that it is a sign that I am doing the right thing.

I once thought that I would be satisfied shooting weddings for the rest of my life. I also thought that I would always be a black and white film photographer. Something in me changed and is searching for more. Somethings outside me changed and I have to embrace the new digital age. Whether from the inside or the outside, changes are sweeping me to an uncertain future. Yet I cannot deny it. I can only go forward till the day that I will also pass into memory.

Hi, I'm Lorraine. Nellie's cousin. A very insightful blog you have. There's always more to the photographers than the photographs they take. =) Hope to see the photos soon too... though I'm not as eager as Nellz to see myself!

Sad to hear I won't be seeing you on the wedding circuit anymore. But congrats on stepping out in faith and courage

For me, weddings has always been about the ungaurded moments of emotion people have at weddings. That is why I love weddings in a closed up society. That is also why I have a special love for kids who are so natural at living. Yes, I will miss those moments of joy. I will also appreciate more sleep. :)
