A while back a friend of mine got married, both of them being old and good friends so you could only imagine how excited and euphoric I was for them.
Especially since I was photographer for their pre-wedding.
Whether I was asked or volunteered or volunteered myself for the role; I don’t exactly remember, but either way I enjoyed every second of it. Given, I’d never done it before and it would be my first foray into photography for other people and one of, if not the most, important event in their lives (no pressure there) but really, it’s fun to try new things.
And I did have fun. It was all so beautiful and wonderful. The place we chose was a very quiet park in Green Community DIP, a place teeming with life and colorful flora, so there was practically no need to decorate. Bright and cheery was the theme, things that reflected the nature of my two dear friends and their relationship but also quaint and simple because truly it doesn’t take extravagance and material possessions to nurture a good relationship.
I wasn’t nervous if I remember it right (on wasting their time and mine and of course the “moment”) , because these two were my friends, people I care about and hold close to my heart. It was a labor of love.
