Do you really have to know anything about weddings to be a wedding photographer? Well, if you are in a Hallmark movie, not necessarily. Listen, I understand that I should not expect every movie that features a photographer to portray the profession accurately or in depth. However, one could expect the portrayal to be somewhere in the vicinity of reality.
On this episode of the podcast, we’re talking about the Hallmark movie “In the Key of Love,” where a singer-songwriter becomes a wedding photographer and, let’s just say, she’s not exactly the best at in the business.
Who doesn’t love a good Hallmark movie? Wait, is “In the Key of Love” a good movie? The film follows our protagonist, Maggie, as she tries her hand at wedding photography after having left the music industry. When her ex love interest and song writing partner shows up on the island where Maggie is the sole wedding photographer for his sister’s wedding, the hilarity ensues.
In this episode, we will be discussing the comedic aspects of the movie and how it portrays the world of wedding photography. We will also be delving into the challenges and realities of starting a new career in photography, especially one as demanding as wedding photography.
So whether you’re a fan of Hallmark movies, interested in the world of wedding photography, or just in the mood for a good laugh, I have a feeling you will enjoy this episode. Join us!
