To me, photography is more than simply snapping a photo, it is an emotional tie to a particular moment in time......a moment in time that may have otherwise been lost forever ...a moment in time that may have otherwise been lost forever.
If anything I have learned in my 6 years of professional photography, is to not get so lost in the technical aspect of the art that you lose the very essence of why you were hired in the 1st place. It is very important to me that I capture your memories just the way you want them, so I often meet with my clients in the studio before the session, have a phone consultation, and/or set-up Pinterest inspiration boards so that we can share ideas. I find this to be very helpful so that the client can see what I am envisioning and more importantly, I can see what their vision is as well!
My favorite shoot to date involved a couple that was seeking an expert photographer that could capture the essence of their love for one another. They’d already had a photographer in mind, but kept their options open. After a very brief discussion, I took the couple into the studio to work on their engagement session. The atmosphere was truly magical as the love between this couple filled the studio. It was like something out of a storybook. That allowed me to just let the camera do its unscripted job and create that magic I felt in the room. Breland a nd Latrell were spontaneous and so natural. I felt as if I just disappeared into the background and let their love take over! When Breland and Latrell saw the proofs they were completely blown away. They hired me to photograph their wedding, and although I balled from all the love in the air that day, I managed to capture the essence of that special day as well.
