Photography is not simply documenting what is in front of you. It tells a story or sets a scene. Photographs have the power to make someone feel something.
I enjoy meeting a new couple, learning about them, and making their photographs reflect a little bit about who they are.
Do you enjoy viewing other people’s wedding photographs? Me too. I don’t think we look at them time and time again just because they are pretty. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I know the people in the photographs. I can connect with them and feel a little bit of the emotion that they must have been feeling. I find myself smiling when I view pictures of people laughing together.
You can sense the anticipation before the groom sees his bride for the first time.
You can feel the special connection a father and daughter share during their dance.
You can tell the mother’s personality during her dance with her son.
I love photography because I am able to capture the emotion felt in that moment. When photos are delivered, I know heartstrings are tugged when the couple or family sits down to view them together. It takes them right back to the instant the photo was captured.
I also truly enjoy documenting my own life in a pretty, but powerful way. Follow along on Instagram to see regularly posted photos of my own life!
