Let's give this "posting every day" thing another shot.
A photographer's perspective is very unique.
If you're doing your job right, you'll disappear into the background, and when that happens you get the chance to see life happen.
We don't often get to stop and watch life being lived -- we're busy living in the moment. And that's ok.
But life is poetry, and that poetry is written in the smile lines, and the curve of our bodies and the way that we walk, and the way we hold one another, and the way our fingers lightly touch. We smile like we never smile in photographs. We laugh and dance -- we let our guard down. We love with our whole hearts. Every smile and tear, each breath and embrace, writes another line in the poem of our lives.
And, as a photographer, I get to enclose myself in a small box, and watch the epic world story being written -- one child at a time, two lovers at a time. It's a rare opportunity, and one I've come to cherish more and more lately.
For many years my great photographic joy has been capturing the lives and adventure of my children's lives. But lately, I've found new passion and fulfillment in capturing the blossoming of young love, in the eyes and smiles, and embraces of couples starting out on the long, difficult, wonderful journey that is marriage. Each couple is unique, but they're all writing the same story.
I hope you enjoy a few pictures from the Engagement session with Kelsey and Matt.
