Here at Wildair Portraits we specialise in dog and equine photography. Its not often that we photograph a wedding; in fact, I normally try everything in my power to avoid photographing weddings. I feel that you should do what you love, and I love animals and portraits. However, this wedding was slightly different.
I first met jess at the beginning of 2020. She interviewed me and a couple of other photographers for her photography tuition YouTube channel, thattogspot. Since then, we have talked pretty much every week. When Jess told me she was getting married, I was so excited for her. Naturally I started asking all the normal questions; what’s your dress like? Have you chosen a photographer? When she said no to both I instantly started sending her dresses and photo ideas!
For me, wedding photography is about the couple and their relationship rather than the guests and the venue. I had a super small wedding myself. All I wanted really to remember the day was one beautiful image of me and my husband. Something printed to be put on the wall. Jess loved that idea and asked whether I would free to help out! Luckily, I don’t live that far from Jess either, so it was definitely a yes!
It was a lovely small, intimate wedding due to the virus restrictions in place and I feel so honoured to be part of the day. After the ceremony we set off to Jess’s favourite woodlands to capture some beautiful portraits of them both to remember the day, it was a fun filled afternoon with lots of laughter and moments to treasure. It was not the warmest of days either for Jess and Dan with light drizzle for most of the day, but honestly I don’t think they noticed it much.
I wish them all the happiness in the world and a very happy future, with lots of love and laughter. Now back to the day job of dog and equine photography.
