Last year before wedding season kicked off I attended the Welcome Home workshop in Glasgow, run by the lovely Emma & Pete of ‘Emma Case Photography’. I’ve been a longer time admirer of their work. Infact, it was their beautiful images that first began my passion for wedding photography all those years ago. Needless to say, I was bloody excited to meet them and they certainly didn’t disappoint.
We all hung out for the afternoon at the gorgeous home of Chris & Gillian, another amazing photo duo ‘The Curries’. It was the perfect, cosy setting. I listened intensively, cup of tea in hand, and let all the inspiration wash over me. Emma & Pete have such a beautiful outlook on life, it’s hard not to fall in love with those two.
Most of all they helped remind us just why we do this job – its about capturing memories, creating experiences and above all showing the real love. It’s sometimes easy to get lost in this current climate of feeling you need to be constantly competing against eachother, chasing that latest ‘must have’ image. Yes, wedding photography is about art and doing what you can to stand out from the pack, but it’s soo important to remember above all it’s about the love between two incredible humans.
This last wedding season was all about capturing ‘the feels’ – getting closer with my couples, letting them relax around me and making magic in it’s simplest, purest form. Thank you Emma + Pete for sharing your wisdom and kind insights with us all. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you more as people over the last few months. You’ll forever be an amazing inspiration to all us ‘Homies’ and we’re all so excited for you in this next chapter in your lives.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes images taken that day (I think you’ll agree what a seriously dreamy couple we got to shoot!) –
