A year ago I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of Elizabeth and Atilla, two teachers from Northamptonshire. Elizabeth really prized her photography and had made all sorts of sacrifices in other areas of her wedding to ensure that she got the images she wanted, and that included finding the photographer that was right for her. Fortunately, that was me.
When she told me that she was a music teacher and that she was selling her cello to pay for the photography, nothing was going to stop me taking them on as clients on the spot. It was so refreshing and heartening to find a couple that knew the true value of recording their memories and that put that above the price of expensive details such as chair covers or sweet stalls. It was a small and simple family wedding, but in terms of fun, love and emotion, they were the richest people in the world that day.
Following their wedding, Elizabeth sent me this lovely testimonial.
” Thanks Bob for your contemporary artistic approach to our wedding day! Unobtrusively photographing the key moments, you were a great guest and true professional! Absolutely stunning results for any discerning bride and groom; thank you again for recording our day in such a beautiful and meaningful way!! We would recommend Bob Owen Photography for any key event: beautiful, classic, natural photography. Excellent!
Happy anniversary Elizabeth and Atilla, your wedding still makes me smile!
