Then came married life. My wife and I have been blessed with three beautiful children – two boys and a girl. Since their births, we realized that certain moments in life are fleeting. Their first words, first steps, their giggles are always etched in our memories. However, they can be more visually recalled if shown with beautifully captured photographs. With that, I decided to study photography in depth. I bought my first DLSR. I learned photography by reading books, joining workshops, joining photography groups and reading blogs.
The photography style I have been cultivating is to create photographs that evoke of emotions. I want every image to be a story in itself. Although I pose my subjects, I always wait for the moment they interact with each other. People who are in love may initially be directed to stand in a certain way but their gazes to each other are what makes a photograph magical. They can be asked to kiss but the moment before their lips touch and eyes closed is what makes a photo exceptional.
My love for wedding photography grew when I saw the juxtaposition of different disciplines of photography in a wedding. Details, product photography. Moments, photojournalism. Bride and groom portraits, portrait photography. These challenged me to explore wedding photography deeper. I am elated when I capture the moment expressed by the groom who sees his bride for the first time on their wedding day. I am elated when I see the father dances her daughter for the last time as single. I am elated when I hear experiences shared by the best man or maid of honor. These things reveal how weddings can be bittersweet.
For these reasons, weddings should be well documented and I will be delighted to capture these for you.
