Wedding Photography . . .

“A Picture is worth a thousand words besides for the wedding couple, wedding photos are more than that; it consists of love, promise, memory, passion, and joy. That’s what makes them timeless and priceless at the same time.”

Wedding photography is the Photography of activities relating to weddings. It encompasses photographs as well as coverage of the wedding and reception. It is a major branch of commercial photography supporting many specialists. Like the technology of photography itself, the practice of wedding photography has evolved and grown since the invention of the photographic art form in 1826 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce.

Due to the nature of the bulky equipment and lighting issues, wedding photography was largely a studio practice for most of the late 19th century. Over time, technology improved, but many couples still might only pose for a single wedding portrait. Wedding albums started becoming more commonplace towards the 1880s, and the photographer would sometimes include the wedding party in the photographs. Often the wedding gifts would be laid out and recorded in the photographs as well.

At the beginning of the 20th century, color photography became available, but was still unreliable and expensive, so most wedding photography was still practiced in black and white.

Initially, professional studio photographers might bring a lot of bulky equipment, thus limiting their ability to record the entire event. Even “candid” photos were more often staged after the ceremony. In the 1970s, the more modern approach to recording the entire wedding event started evolving into the practice, as we know it today, including a more Documentary Photography style of photography.

Love is our true destiny. We do not find meaning of life by ourselves alone—​we find it with another.

‘ The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.’

“I’m getting married because I’m in love with a girl and want to spend my life with her. You can’t live your life doing what other people want you to or you’ll be miserable. At some point you just have to be yourself.”

‘ It’s about a meaningful moment between two people that’s witnessed by people that they actually really know and care about. ‘


“Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life. A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”

“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life — to strength each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting”

“The highest happiness on earth is the happiness of marriage.The greatest marriages are built on teamwork. A mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration, and a never-ending portion of love and grace.”

The Fountains mingle with the Rivers and the Rivers with the Oceans, The winds of heaven mix forever with a sweet emotion; nothing in the world is single.
