Love is in the Air: A Wedding Photographer's Reflection on Valentine's Day

As Valentine's Day approaches, the air is filled with the sweet anticipation of love. For many couples, this season marks the beginning of an exciting journey towards marriage, filled with engagements, proposals, and the joy of wedding planning. As a wedding photographer, I've had the privilege of capturing countless love stories, each one as unique and beautiful as the next.

This Valentine's Day, I find myself reflecting on my own journey of love and marriage, and I can't help but dedicate this blog to my amazing wife. She is not only my partner in life but also my biggest supporter in my photography endeavors. She understands the long hours spent photographing weddings, editing photos, and building my business, and for that, I am endlessly grateful.

I vividly recall the day I proposed to her, a moment filled with nervous excitement and boundless love. I had initially planned to take her to Stourhead, one of my favorite landscape locations, with its picturesque beauty and historical significance. However, as fate would have it, heavy rain threatened to dampen our plans. Undeterred, I improvised and instead took her for a romantic walk along the river in Stratford, our beloved spaniel Ziggy by our side.

It was there, amidst the gentle murmur of the river and the rustling of leaves, that I finally gathered the courage to pop the question and as she said yes, I knew in my heart that it didn't matter where we were or what the weather was like – all that mattered was the love we shared.

One of the things I cherish most as a wedding photographer is hearing the unique and heartfelt stories of how couples proposed to each other. It's a testament to the power of love and the lengths we're willing to go to make those we care about feel special.

So, as we celebrate Valentine's Day and the season of love, let us cherish the moments we share with our loved ones and the memories we create together and for those embarking on the journey of marriage, may your love story be filled with endless joy, laughter, and beautiful moments captured forever.

Being pre occupied by the proposal in a downpour I'm afraid I don't have any photos fro the proposal, I will however include a photo I took of where I had planned to make my proposal the beautiful setting of stourhead. 

Finally id like to finish by wishing my wonderful wife Emily a vey happy valentines day.
