Laughter-the best medicine

They say laughter is the best medicine.

Looking back on all of these images it really does put a smile on my face. Everyone should laugh regularly and better still with abandon. You know the kind of laugh I mean;  that hearty one that emanates deep from within your belly; the one that makes you squeeze your eyes shut and open your mouth.

Now that’s the kind of laughter worth its weight in gold.

When I shoot weddings I am of course looking for these and other moments.  Sometimes I just get lucky. And sometimes I sense something is about to happen, a frisson of excitement or movement in the corner of my eye. Other times I simply start the ball moving. A simple bit of direction and chat.

I don’t tell jokes. In fact I’m terrible at them. Just ask my friends. No sense of timing at all. But what I’m good at is making people comfortable and letting them being themselves so that I can tell their stories my way.

Many of you will say that, for different reasons,  2016 was a tough year . So let’s promise to laugh little more this year.
