Falling in Love and getting married to the man of my dreams- a Photographer, was all I ever wished for. And when it happened for real I considered myself blessed, like it was my biggest achievement in life. It’s been almost half a decade that I’ve been married to my talented sweetheart.
But to tell you the truth, like most marriages mine has been a roller coaster ride too. Filled with some obviously insane and awe-struck moments and experiences.
Trust me you won’t believe how tiring and relaxing (Yeah, That too at the same time!) the life can be with a Photographer as a partner.
How I manage my marriage with a photographer
1.No fixed hours of job, Means less ‘My time’!
My wedding photographer husband made sure to have the best candid moments of ours at the day of our marriage. Obviously he had to! That’s his profession. And when at work front, he burns his ass the entire day. (I know, wedding photography is a seasonal job!)
But still, what about my long list of ‘to-do’ things and activities that I plan with him? And otherwise! It annoys me as I get less me-time, because he’s not at home, and sometimes even away for outdoor shoots.
2.Exotic and dreamlike vacations and Outings – Gets my thumbs up!
Well, he is a photographer. And being one sound professional photographer he knows what light, background, and setting will make for a beautiful picture.
His knowledge of visiting such picturesque places makes my mouth drop wide open. And sways me to fall in love with him all over again!
3.Money sometimes takes center stage
In our small nest, when everything is going fine, Money does come to play havoc. (Like the super villain!)
I do understand that photography is a creative and demanding recession free profession, but being a homemaker I need fixed INCOME to run home too.
Let me tell you how he tackles the situation. He makes a super cute face. And flatters me with his childish charm.
But still comes across as a responsible man. And makes up for our demands with his creativity and love.
4.I am beautiful for him all day long
This is the plus point of marrying your photographer boyfriend or would be partner (in an arranged marriage setting). My sweetheart with his gadgets on likes to click me every now and then. Whether I have just woken up, or cooking his favorite meal, or enjoying a serene landscape, or in tears missing family or sitting in untidy clothes.
For him, I am his own personal muse, who is real and beautiful. Not fake like the masked faces that he shoots. He even clicked my beautiful baby bump. (I love him for this adoration!)
5.Have to be on toes with him even when not feeling so
He being a terrific timer never misses out to click the sunsets and sunrise, the early morning beautiful beaches, the evening flocking of birds, and flying back to their nest and more!
Being his companion, I have to stand in support with him, whenever he shows such eagerness, and passion even when I don’t feel so. Looks like love do cost a thing!
6.Give me space, but that at times gets on my nerves!
He is a free spirited soul. Neither questions me nor do I. He spends time on the shoot, lets me shop, be with friends and sometimes allows me to be completely aloof and alone. But more space given by him too tends to get on my head and disturbs me.
Should I really feel this way? I think these are rather shaadi ke side effects with a photographer!
7.Shopping loads, with him around, don’t pester me!
Hah, this comes easily to him. He carries his heavy camera and equipment that by now even his biceps are visible.
And my shopping bags weigh nothing to him, so I too don’t worry about them. I just shop, and he lifts!
8.Home feels like office with photo print work & urgent assignments
The mumbo-jumbo on his desk makes my home his office. He eats, sleeps and drinks there and completely forgets about the place. And leaves the unused and scrap sheets for me to collect. I feel like a house maid with murderous intentions when he does this with me!
9.Love gadgets more than me, Freaks me out!
He spends more time with his cameras, tripods, lenses and other equipment. Like he is married to them and not me!
Loves and care for them as his second wife. And this completely gets on my nerve. How much I hate him for this!
10.Unusual gifts make my day
He makes my special days even more special. Because first and foremost he remembers all my important days (an envy topic for most ladies!). And secondly, he always gifts me something beyond my imagination.
Gets creatively involved in making the treasure trove of memories that we can wear, cuddle in, eat or just see in wonder!
Managing my husband is a daily chore. A struggle I cope with much love!
‘And we are happy twosome, crazy souls totally in awe of one another!’
This brings me to state the words of caution – All men are same. My one is no different from the lot.
And marriage is not a cakewalk. These talented souls have a unique perspective on everything that surrounds them and have strange habits.
They make you feel amazing one day, excite you with their tantrums, give you frights with crucial workloads and another day you become the mad partner. So tie the knot if you too are a hell of a crazy girl.
