Professional Divorce Photographer – Mini-Mocks

December 21, 2019 0 By Peter Engel


Photographs capture the most formative moments
of our lives, positive or negative. My job is to document that special day when
one becomes two. I’m Tom Byrd, and I’m a divorce photographer. For a lot of people, the day their divorce
is finalized is the new happiest day of their life. They feel reborn, unshackled from years of
resentment and lies. I encourage people to get personal, vulnerable. Before we get to the “I don’ts,” sometimes
the couple and I will return to location of their first big fight and rekindle that energy. Occasionally, we have to deal with a divorce-zilla,
but who doesn’t get a little crazy when planning their first divorce? There’s no wedding party, but there are lawyers,
and they’re often more enthusiastic than maid-of-honor that I’ve ever seen. We’re gonna be rich! I’d argue that the glow returning to a woman’s
eyes after a long and sexless marriage is more beautiful than a sunset. Reconciliation does happen and when it does,
I’ll capture it. But those photos don’t go on the website,
and I charge double. You guys just going to give up like that? I’ve even watched divorcees surprise their
ex by bringing a new lover to the shoot. Couldn’t wait to see you. What’s going on man? Will you marry me?
