A few days ago a lovely lady named Tanya contacted me through Facebook. She was announcing she recently got engaged, had booked her venue and was now looking for a photographer. She then complimented me by saying she had always followed and loved my work. Which was just one of the reasons she was contacting me first. She then told me that here and her fiancé were big Liverpool fans and they both knew I was also a Liverpool fan myself. Yes I know we are still to win the Premier League. Her next comment I think filled me with more excitement than when Steven Gerrard last lifted the European Cup (yes I know that was 12 years ago!):
“We are getting married at Anfield. Actually inside Liverpool Football Stadium. Will you be our photographer?”
My actual response was “Are you kidding me? Even if I have to walk there, I will be there!”
We arranged a date shortly after for me to go and meet the happy couple. They actually live local to me but Kevin, the groom, is from Liverpool and all his family live up there. They had their deposit ready and were as eager to secure my services as I was to confirm the booking.
I’ve even been invited to stay after the wedding and join in the party. Well, it would be rude not to wouldn’t it! 😉 lol
