I'm going to assume that if you're reading this then you are as serious as I am about wedding photography. It's become a real passion of mine. Photography has always been a passion of mine. I really was that kid that was given a camera at an early age and got super excited about creating something with what I had in front of me. I used to bug my parents and grandparents to develop the film I'd spent hours meticulously using up - granted, most of the pictures were of my feet, or had a finger over the lens, but still, I knew I loved it.
Luckily, things have progressed somewhat since then... my passion was reignited when I found out I was expecting my first child back in 2008. I purchased a camera and set to work reminding myself how to use a digital version of the camera my grandfather gave me all those years before. We obviously live in a digital age so I still have the first picture I took with that camera.
Alright, so I'm not going to win any awards for it, but I knew that, once again, I had to take pictures. My daughter was born the following year, followed by my son three years later, and both provided me with plenty of opportunities to feed my passion - along with some other inspiration along the way.
Around when my son was born I launched BGS Photography, this allowed me to take pictures for families in a number of different locations and settings; and I love it! It remains something I love to do, I really enjoy interacting with people, big and small alike! (my partner may say that I am on the same wavelength as the kids, but what does she know...). I have captured countless number of children and families since I started this venture, and have loved every minute of it.
So then came the next portion of my life. I met an amazing woman, a truly amazing woman who taught me a lot; about life, love, folding fitted sheets, all that jazz. Since then I have had an even greater desire to go out there and capture the loving moments that occur throughout a wedding.
So that brings us pretty much up to date. That's me. I'll be keeping this blog updated with various things that are going on. I hope to show both the business side, as well as our home life - with four crazy kids that seem to follow us around everywhere.
Hopefully I will get to meet you soon, for a consultation or a pre-wedding shoot, and we can discuss exactly what you want from the pictures of your day. I will of course take the more traditional group shots that people want, but where I shine is the mixture of photojournalism and artistic shots which capture the essence, and love, of your day.
