Sunday 17th March, St Patrick’s Day, but yesterday’s gathering of suppliers at Alexander Park, near Ledbury, was to show off their flowers, gowns, top hat and tails, transport, sweets and of course photography.
Over the weekend there were several wedding fayres, with Hereford High Town hosting the most accessible with three separate venues all in the centre of town. Then on Sunday, the stunning Wilton Castle and Alexander Park venues became home to lots of suppliers for a few hours.
With the increase of these fayres there is no shortage of idea’s, inspiration and people to talk to. This brings me to something I think is very important – talking to people, face to face, making eye contact and making that all important first impression.
You can’t beat that personal service, after all if you are choosing someone, me as your photographer, to spend the whole day (usually in close quarters) with you, you need to feel comfortable with them, trust them and also have some fun. These are things you can gauge from that all important first meeting which can’t get from the internet. You can see if they are paying you the attention you deserve.
I am a big fan of meeting people. I like to ensure that my clients get what they wish for and for me to capture images to treasure forever, may it be a wedding or lifestyle session.
I look forward to hearing from some of the lovely people I spoke to yesterday to discuss their “big day” plans further.
