Love and I
When we are young, we discover the very things that will define us as adults. I happened to find my first Love at a short age, and it was the forever-kind-of-love: my camera and the magic I could do with it; I was able to freeze chunks of my life, those around me and forever store the memories and experiences that otherwise, would’ve been lost in time, like tears in rain. We have since, been inseparable, just like the two of you are!
From your wedding day, few things will last forever, fortunately, it’s the ones that matter the most that do:
- The very essence of a wedding: your eternal love for each other.
- The unforgettable experience though timeless photographs.
Pretty much everything else will be gone (well, maybe the hangover will stay for a day or two).
I’ve firmly believe in the power of photographs, and I like to translate that belief into powerful images that you will cherish forever.
Seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another.
We dream, we plan, we rehearse, and things will simply happen, but the emotions and how you react to it has no plan, no rehearse and cannot be dreamt.
We ensured to had the right person to capture the big and small moments. Such as a classic Dino-Moment, one of my wife’s favourite photos of me, realizing I forgot to remove the tag off my tux jacket, minutes before our own wedding.
It is by self-experience one learns it’s not only the big planned moments that count, but also the small, unscripted and natural ones that will touch you.
I’ve been on the very journey you are only starting to devise and it is with that empathy from being in front of the lens rather than behind that I approach each project, listening to what you want, looking for what you cannot see, feeling what you’re living.
My love, my closest friend, my lover, my partner-in-crime, my muse and the most challenging model I’ve had; she was camera-shy, and didn’t really liked being photographed, so, she became my sensei, and it was through the process of gaining her trust while I photographed her, that I learned: a great photograph isn’t enough, if the person being photographed isn’t blissfully happy with how they look in said image! In photography, that was the biggest lesson I got from her, a non-photographer, but the one I cared the most when I took photos.
Today it is paramount in my photography, to ensure I get not only beautiful images, but making sure through that process, that my clients look at their best on every image!
She is my cherry, the cake and everything in between for me!
