"Togetherness" sessions are close to my heart. I am deeply in love with photographing couples that have been together for years and married for longer than a minute. There's something raw and genuine about these shoots because I get to photograph the heart of their love, catch a few glimpses of their relationship/marriage and hear their story. I always leave those sessions feeling so humbled because it's a real privilege to photograph their vulnerability to each other and for one another.
Photography is important. Not because it is my life - it's not. But simply because of the beautiful tool that it is in helping us remember the things that we so quickly seem to forget as we walk through life. Life is busy for you, for me, for everybody. Things happen. And as the years go by, we often take the people we have around us for granted. I think it's fair to say that it's human nature. And this is the very reason why I think those couple's sessions are even more important.
I did a session like this one a few years ago and got an email back from the husband saying: "Thank you for helping us remember what is the most important thing in our lives through those photographs. It's so easy to forget until you stop and look."
I suppose that is why I do what I do. Those sessions are more than just taking pretty pictures of beautiful people! It will enable you and your husband/wife to connect in a beautiful place... just you and him/her. No distractions. And as you connect heart to heart, I'll be around to capture the essence of you both. There's no "posing". There's no "fake" and "pretending". The photographs are the cherry on the cake as you get to see them together and remember all over again the things that you perhaps forgot.
- “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
Contact me if you would like to know more about these special sessions. I would be honoured to photograph you and your spouse. I look forward to hearing about your story, your journey and your love.
Enjoy this beautiful couple. It is always a delight to spend time with them and photograph them. I will be doing another session for them again in the coming weeks so you will see them again soon!
