Let's Dance and Smile.
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
To the song they're playin' on the radio
While color lights up your face
Sway through the crowd to an empty space"
Let's Dance - David Bowie
This image of Nicco and Rachel is one of the images I have on my Home page. I chose it for that page because of the fun they were both having in that moment. I asked them to dance and they did. It is one of my favourite images. It was a cold, wet day but that didn't stop this couple from smiling and thoroughly enjoying their day. I had met Rachel before but I did not meet Nicco until the day of the wedding. Rachel had told me that he didn't really enjoy getting his photograph taken! But I would never have known that if I hadn't been told. Quite a number of couples tell me that they do not like getting their photograph taken. Neither do I, if i'm being honest. But this couple were a joy to photograph from start to finish. If I was to give any couple advice about their approach to the photography on the day it would be this.....relax, enjoy yourself and smile. There was a real energy from this particular couple that I feel came through in the photographs. It made my job so much easier. Their love for each other spilled over and infected and affected the whole occasion. They literally did not stop smiling especially when they were dancing.
