Share the love; plant some trees

rsz_lindsay&dave_log_cabin_ravensheugh_scotland_thomas_beetz_photography_181 That day, where custom dictates you reveal your affections to your sweetheart, has rolled around again. Thought to have been established in 18th century England, Valentine’s Day has become a tradition aimed at spreading the love.

However, while it’s become an occasion for many to revel in the handing over of cards and presents, and gorge on glorious food, we at Thomas Beetz Photography are sceptical of the increasing pressure to undertake ever more extravagant, and expensive, gestures.

Despite our cynicism, we wanted to mark the occasion. How could we share the love, though, without buying into the commercialism? And could we perhaps include planet earth in our plans, and demonstrate our appreciation for this amazing world with its many fantastic offerings?

Then we had it: Our Valentine’s gift to all the couples out there planning to celebrate their love by getting married. From this day forth, for every wedding photography booking we receive, we’ll plant a tree. Not only will each wedding couple have a fantastically branchy buddy dedicated to them, but we’ll be helping the planet stay beautiful!

Let us know your thoughts on this subject, or of any green projects you’re involved in. Maybe we can work together!
