{interesting article}

I ran across this article on another blog. The credit to the writer is listed below. I have to admit, it made me chuckle because it is SO TRUE! I could relate to pretty much everything he wrote about, and I could add my fair share of even more. ;)

Nevermind the Photographs - Why your photographer could be the most important part of your wedding day!

Nobody is better placed to help your wedding day along than your chosen wedding photographer. A bold statement, but stay with me.
You’ve paid out a small fortune for other people to look after everything, and you’ll be a little bit pre-occupied of course, what with getting married etc.
The groom will go along with whatever you want, darling. As will dads. Men, huh? Mums will help a little, enough, or a lot…I’m not going there.
And your friends have come for the party.
Your cake and flowers will be delivered. The DJ will set up later.The venue will feed and water you.
And the 90 other people you’ve invited. But not at the church, or on the boat, or even the dancefloor.
Only your wedding photographer will be focused on you through all of it. To record the day’s events, we have to always be there…around…watching. Not in your face, in the background. Experience tells us when to expect things to happen, when to nudge them along and when to stay out of the way.
We might take photos of your flowers, your table plans, your decorations, but we will always know where you are and when. Right up until it’s time to leave.
We’ve joked with grooms and best men to calm their nerves.We’ve told the bride she looks wonderful seconds before she faces the world. We’ve asked the flower girls to jump on the page boys, just to see what happens. We’ve filled-up when your dad’s voice cracked during his speech. We’ve worked out which is your mum and which is your stepmum.
We’ve made friends with your labrador!
We’ve taken you both aside for a few minutes to give you a breather and remind you you’re there for each other.Oh, and we’ve taken a few photographs too!
