As a photographer you are not just taking pictures, you are capturing time and freezing it forever. 

I would give anything to have a professional picture of me with my Dad who passed away 6 years ago. If you understand how important your role is as a photographer you will understand just how much your clients are depending on you to capture that Grandma, Grandpa, Brother or Sister etc. who migh

t pass away for some reason after the wedding, or any other event that you shoot.

I can't tell you how many times I've had clients tell me that they've ended up using my images of a Grandma or Grandpa for their funeral service because it's the last image that was taken of them.

What you do truly does matter.
