“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” Karl Lagerfeld
In this day and age, everything is digital. Mobile phones are the gatekeepers of our souls. There is an app for everything – from your bank account to your energy bill – even dating. Gone are the days of printing boarding passes, writing shopping lists or having to book your holiday on the phone. We have a lot to thank technology for.
However, there are some experiences, which are better in real life. Like a family day out at the beach. Things like Christmas shopping – that festive feeling only Christmas lights can induce. Wandering along a brightly lit high street, escaping from the cold and ordering a romantic dinner for two inside a 5* restaurant with top-notch table service – something HungryHouse will never be able to deliver. Or how about that feeling when you find the perfect dress? Somehow, the more hours you’ve spent looking for it, the better – it’s as if you’ve had to work for it.
Sites like asos.com are great time savers; a tap or a click later and you’ve spent over your budget without really knowing what you’re buying, no idea what it feels like, how it will look or whether it will last. Nothing quite beats the sense of achievement of finding what you’ve been looking for, of holding it in your hands and knowing it’s yours to wear whenever you want and live out your dreams in, time and time again.
That’s why we at Coloroworld Imaging will never stop loving photographs. Like Christmas lights, they fill you with anticipation or nostalgia and never fail to bring the memories rushing back. Looking through photo albums as youngsters, always manage to transport us to cherished places from the past.
Technology has moved along in what seems like light years’ but there are times when one just wants to pick up a wedding or family album and sit back, relax with a cuppa and let the memories flood in”
Weddings are difficult to plan. They take time, love and money to pull off. The smallest details are pored over with such great care – from the exact colour of the napkins to the last curl of your flower girl’s hair. It takes tenacity, craftsmanship and perseverance to create a perfect wedding day and it sure deserves to be captured on camera.
How many times have you said to yourself, ‘I wish I had printed our holiday photos’ or, ‘if only I’d brought a disposable camera?’ We all love having photos around us – to remind us of loved ones, the good times and years gone by. Apps like Instagram or Facebook make it easy to take pictures and add our own filters to show our friends – they are great for nights out, quick shots of our day to day lives – nice to have on our mobile phones to flick through on the train. Not for your special day.
In years to come, how do you see yourself sharing your wedding memories? Whether it’s with your family, your friends or maybe your children, I am sure you have it pictured. For some people maybe it’s on an iPad or mobile phone but for the traditionalist, it will always be a photo album. The flowers may fade, the dress may fray, the cake will most definitely be eaten, but like your marriage, photographs last a lifetime. Whatever comes your way, photographs have a habit of reminding you of the best times and are one of life’s greatest pleasures.
