It all started when we photographed Karl’s sister’s wedding.
Actually, lets take a few steps back.
We’re Karl and Rebecca Welsch.
(yes, we’re married…we looovved our wedding day and now we have a beautiful little girl, Stella. Introductions – done).
Back to Karl’s sister.
We weren’t photographing professionally back then. That day changed everything. It was our first time photographing a wedding. At the end of the day, Karl said “I totally loved it’. So, that was the beginning of our journey. We look back at those photos now and are thrilled at how far we’ve come. Karl’s sister looks back now and asks for a commission. This is a journey that we’ve enjoyed taking together and continue to.
There’s something exciting about photographing a wedding.
We still feel a bit nervous when we arrive at the bride and grooms house. We feel nervous for them and nervous for us – we always want to get that next amazing photo. It’s exciting because there are so many opportunities for awesome photos and it’s choosing the right time, seeing the right things, being relaxed and in the moment to observe. It’s exciting because there is such a special feeling and you’re right there and in it. We used to have other jobs. ‘Other job’s’ is a perfect description as they weren’t love jobs. You know, the kind of jobs that let you be comfortable. But, as they say, life’s short and aren’t you lucky if you can make a living doing what you love. So, we guess, we’re lucky. We photograph weddings because it excites us and we love it.
We often wonder what drives us – to take photos.
It becomes more and more necessary. I guess it’s a way to express ourselves. You may find that strange – expressing yourself through wedding photography. But, it’s absolutely true. It’s the way you see things happening, how you’re telling the story. Seeing things that others don’t see. Interpretation. Storytelling.
That’s what makes photography unique and special.
