Time flies by. Espeically the rare moments of pure joy.
As a Wedding Videographer I know this more than most. So many wedding days pass by so soon.
When I look back, the memories at the forefront of my mind aren’t all happy. Major Spine surgery to the death of my father to name a few.
Although the happiest of memories occupy the majority of my minds eye. For example, the times when I used to watch and wait for my older brother come home from school. Or the sunny days in the 80s ,washing up bottles filled for water fights with my little sister. My Mum and Dads excited cheering as I scored a goal in the semi final of the Devon Cup. The waves of uncontrollable emotion as I looked up to see Sarah in her wedding dress. The absolute devotion I felt the first time I held my sons after they where born.
I can’t explain exactly how I felt in these moments. But if I had a camera and a time machine, I wouldn’t show you Birthday or Christmas gifts. I wouldn’t show you academic success or the decoration of a new home.
I would show you the moments that shaped who I am. For me it’s not important to prove my mastery of a camera. My obsession with shadow, light and composition. Or elaborate events I’ve covered around the world.
It is just important for you to know, if you trust me with these precious fleeting moments. I will know how much they mean to you.
I promise that when I share your wedding film with you…you’ll know that I felt how special they where too.
