The moment in which a father sees his daughter in her wedding gown for the first time and he wraps his arms around her. The moment when the emotions of this same father are written on his face by the first tear drop trickling down his cheek. The moments, the little gestures, the emotions are all of the things I try to capture on the day that you have dreamt about since you were a little girl. A day on which you want nothing more than everything to be perfect and will remember forever. Later in life, you may be sitting with your child on your lap, looking at the photographs from the day on which you were the center of attention. You will be so proud to show them and tell them the story behind each of the photographs. Each one of them has a story behind them. A beautiful story about two people that love each other and that will be alongside one another forever. It is my duty as a wedding photographer to capture this day and your love story. This is for you and for your future generations.
As a wedding photographer in Chicago, I have always put a huge focus on the moments between moments. Maybe the fact that I was a photojournalist for many years has helped me hone in on my ability to anticipate these particular moments. They are the moments that more often than not go unnoticed because they are not the main focus.
Last but not least is the most important aspect of a photograph. It is the one element that a photograph cannot exist without. It has the ability to change that photograph from ordinary to extraordinary. THE LIGHT! I am not referring to the amount of light. I am referring to the quality of the light. Light is what has the ability to change a photograph. It makes what makes it a photograph.
