For me there’s only one good reason to photograph all the girls together and all the boys together, at a wedding – it’s bloody good fun! On a slightly different note, I’m damn proud of pictures like these. Look at how everyone has thrown caution to the wind and just decided to go with it. Jen & Gary’s wedding was like 9 years ago and it just goes to show what I’ve always believed to be true for any aspiring (wedding) photographer; people skills are THE most important thing that will determine your level of success. Nothing else comes anywhere near close. Camera gear, studio space, marketing plans, mentors, training courses, millionaire spouse, all of these pale into insignificance next to your ability to connect with other human beings. That’s one aspect of the photography game that you can’t buy. Or even ‘fake it til you make it’. Either you have it or you don’t.
