Love. People sometimes say that you must believe in feelings deep inside, otherwise you’d never be confident of things like ‘My wife loves me’. But this is a bad argument. There can be plenty of evidence that somebody loves you. All through the day when you are with somebody who loves you, you see and hear lots of little tidbits of evidence, and they all add up. It isn’t purely an inside feeling. There are outside things to back up the inside feeling: looks in the eye, tender notes in the voice, little favors and kindnesses; this is all real evidence.
But capturing love with a camera? How is this done? Can this be done? A wedding day is a day of celebrating love. Pure and simple. It is nothing more. Nor should it be. Recognizing moments between two people whether it be Bride and Groom, husband and wife, father and daughter, mother and son; to capture pure emotion is a wedding photographer's ultimate goal. To look at an image and be able to recreate the emotion of the moment. This is the goal. Nothing else. If I have done this, I have done my job.
