WHAT HAPPENS TO LOVE NEXT

PREVIOUS / NEXT

WEDDING by KRISS on 05 march 2016

WHAT HAPPENS TO LOVE NEXT Seldom do we get queries from people who want a couple photoshoot after their wedding.
I am simply stating a fact, we have shot lots of couple pictures but they were always either part of the wedding day or before the wedding day.
We simply don’t get people wishing to immortalize their love in pictures after the big event.
And I had to wonder why.

A very schematic and stereotyped marital life suite of events can help :

- Mr X and Ms Y meet in their twenties.
- After a few months or years of going out they get engaged.
- A year later they get married.
- A few months later Mrs Y gets pregnant with the couple’s first child.
- A few years later Mrs Y gets pregnant with the couple’s second child.
- Mr X and Mrs Y live happily ever after.

Again, this is very schematic but having slipped all of the stinking modern way of life divorces and such, I think I am not far from the truth.
The question is, what makes people want to immortalize their image before they get married and then turn solely into families (at least in photographs) for the rest of their lives ? Maybe Mr X and Mrs Y discovered that a few of months of depraved sleep took a toll on their youth and that they now look older and certainly more tired.
Yes Mrs Y boobs may have suffered from breastfeeding and her belly from the pregnancies.
Yes Mr X probably gained a few pounds and gave up on his looks as well but in a generation with a life expectancy of nearly a 100 years old, giving up on remembering we are a couple after the age of 30 seems a little unfair doesn’t it ?

Often, I bump into people, older than I am, probably grandparents already and they look beautiful.
They walk hand in hand, side by side and I can feel a love aura shining around them.
They attract the eyes and I’d love to candidly shoot these guys.
I’d love to make them stunning couple photographs even better than the ones they got for their wedding day.
And wouldn’t it be nice in their living room, rather than this old formal wedding photograph that only stands there to remind them they once loved each other, to have a recent image that shows them they simply keep on loving each other.

If you want my point of view (and if you don’t want it that’s the same because this is our blog damn it), I would include as a couple’s therapy to make a couple’s session at least once every 5 years, with the same attention to it and the same involvement they put into their wedding or engagement photographs.
Not with their kids and their dog and their house.
No simply 2 lovers, loving each other to remind ourselves getting married is actually the act of stepping of one’s own will (hopefully) into a life of sharing with each other.
