So its been almost 4 years now since the launch of BASSEM.CA and a lot has changed since then, in particular my style and company focus. Going from shooting 60+ weddings a year to a little bit over 20 has been the best decision I’ve made. I tried so hard to get to know each couple, going beyond simply being their “Wedding Photographer” but with that many weddings it was proving to be challenging. I guess the biggest question is “why?” Why only do 20 weddings a year? If you think about it, it only makes sense. A wedding is the biggest celebration of a couples’ life and only their closest family and friends are there to share and witness this intimate setting. So for a stranger to show up and capture this significant day never made sense to me, it would only be natural to have a friend document this joyous occasion. Someone a couple could trust, that would blend in with everyone but most importantly someone they could feel totally comfortable with.
Now how does this tie into my new website? As much as I loved my past website with all its elegance, mystery and regality, it just wasn’t me. I felt I needed a website that was a reflection of my personality because it doesn’t matter who you are, you can’t help but have passion, love and your personality come out through your work.
Speaking of passion, nothing has been more rewarding than being a part of my couples’ lives for their wedding and then being asked to capture their growing family. I LOVE weddings and through the process of getting to know my couples and capturing their big day, I’ve come to realize that I also have a passion in family photography.
I would like to thank my family and friends for all their help, input and feedback. Also a BIG shout out to Nick Miller of N2 Productions for making the video, thats right!! Im still getting used to hearing my own voice! *lol*
AND WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO…..(drum roll please)……. OUR NEW WEBSITE
