Couples, Engagements, and Elopements
I am a romantic. I crave amazing love stories, maybe it is because I have never had my own. I am madly in love with love. I love to photograph authentic love. Watching a session with couples unfold is pure joy. In the beginning of a session with couples, you will often hear me say “pretend I am not here, yea, me with the big camera in your face, pretend I am not here and be as you are when you are alone together. Relax, let go and let love guide you.” In order to capture the authenticity of a couples love during a photo session, I should be able to literally feel their love burn through my lens and pierce my soul.
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
– Don McCullin
