Artistic Sorrento wedding photography // Stef & Niall
Occasionally when I speak to people regarding what I do for work their response is “that must be great.. shame having your weekends all taken up though”. And inwardly I sigh yet outwardly I smile sweetly and explain this:
My job, if you can call it that at all, is something I would spend every single day of the year doing. It’s my passion and my life. It’s a massive responsibility and yet with that you get to make new friends every single weekend, to enjoy in their happiness and cry with them through their sadness. It’s something to completely throw yourself in at the deep end with.
To be able to document the wedding of two of my oldest friends is totally humbling.
I met Niall around 8 years ago through a mutual friend with whom he was in a band with and began to take photographs for them during their live gigs. I remember first meeting Stef not that long after in Studio 24, Edinburgh at some gig or another. That was our life, music. It still is theirs to a massive degree; having met at a gig themselves originally. Music has led them to be Mr & Mrs Hillen.
The one thing that will forever stay in my heart is when I left Edinburgh to move to London I held a leaving drinks not expecting too many people to show up. These two were the first two people there and had come with a card for me. I knew at that moment that I had proper friends for life.
Stef & Niall, I love you both and massive congratulations again. This is your Sorrento wedding photography story:
