I can’t begin to tell you how much I adored photographing these two and the honour I felt in being witness to their seriously-outstanding love for each other.
I often contemplate how photographs can “lie” by exaggerating intimacy through the manipulation of body language and light and catching a fleeting moment. In many ways it’s the skill to capture (or create) feelings with these tools that makes a great photographer. It also means that when the feelings of love are palpable and even on full display there runs the risk that the photographs don’t nearly go far enough in proving how real the love is.
I experienced such great great love this day and it was both easy to capture and a challenge to do it justice.
Here are some sneak peeks from our photoshoot. Can you see the love? Is it there, in the eyes, in the tenderness and naturalness of the touch, in the subtleties that you might normally miss in an average lovey dovey photograph?
I hope so. It’s impossible for me to judge as I can’t remove the feelings I experienced whilst taking the photographs.
