Newcastle Engagement Photography // Ellie & James // Saltwell Park, Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne

I feel overwhelmed.

I have so much to do. My head is spinning with the short term tasks, the long term tasks. Big and small. Personal, professional. At work. At home. 

A deep breath.

Sometimes you need to take a step back. To move from 'worker bee' mode to 'CEO' mode. To see the bigger picture. To see the wood for the trees.

What I realise is that I need to simplify things. To strip away the irrelevant distractions and concentrate on what really matters. The core elements.

The heart of the matter.

Wedding photography is the same. The excitement and the drama and the chaos of the wedding day can be overwhelming. Everywhere you look there are photographic possibilities.

Stop.

Be still.

Distil the day down to what really matters.

Two people, connecting.
