Wedding Photography for Pippa and Sudah - 12.12.13 & 14.12.13

In August 2013 Sudah contacted me on A social network of Facebook.

Sudah had said he liked my photography from my facebook and instagram catching moments at mutual friends weddings and just every day to day life. Pippa and himself loved my style of photo and capturing the moment. I take this back to my passion of capturing the bliss of life in photos. Add my background in animation and I know about the motion of life helping me to know when to press the button.

I was very humbled by his request...

But I was heading in to my last months of school, after 4 years of intense study. 
I was unsure if I could give it my full attention. As I often give over to what I am creating. I find it gives me a favoured result.  I had also had a wedding and know that taking wedding photos aren't easy. So I declined his offer.

This was then accompanied by a "To bad, I like your photos. Tell me your daily rate and get back to me". 
I then gave him a list of well priced friends who do a similar style and are actual wedding photographers humbly declining again.

Sudah did not accept this. Receiving a more similar and firm reply. I then put a quote together for the two days of photography. Sudah instantly accepted. I met up with the excited couple in October. They could not wait.

I took about 700 photos across both days capturing their love and family. Both traditions so strong. I adored being their. Being myself, capturing wat I felt important. Enjoy my pictures. I have selected my favourites from both days.

 I know Sudah from recording a band I played in called NEVER REPENT. We played metal, intense melodic death grind. He is an amazing sound engineer.
