This is one of my favorite wedding photos. It’s a snapshot. An authentic moment. It reveals the character of the couple and their relationship. The couple in the picture are my grandparents on their wedding day. March 4th, 1960. For me this image represents so many things. It represents the beginning of their lives together, it represents life as I know it. It represents value. The value of a photograph. This image validates what I do and its importance.
The photograph of the two of them will be passed down from generation to generation. It's an heirloom and one of their first. No matter who photographs your wedding, print your pictures. A photograph isn’t a photograph until it’s a photograph. Make an object that you and future generations will hold, pass around and enjoy. The most important thing I can do for my clients is create heirlooms, images that will age well and reveal something about the character of the people with in the photograph or capture a fleeting moment on a once in a lifetime day.
