Putting this on Ello a few days ahead of anywhere else. I've just started a photos series titled "Moments." Given its nature, I'm going to try not to ruin it with my too many of own words.
Moments is a photo series dedicated to telling the stories behind the photos I shoot. While I’m the one capturing these images, I think their true value resides in what they mean to my clients. This series is my way of bringing those meanings to light. Wedding photography today is so focused on dresses, details and things that it often obscures the human stories that are at the center of every wedding. These are those stories, at least bits of them, told by the people who know them best. Here's the first photo of the series. You can check out the full post at the bit-link below.
We got married in the backyard of our first home.
I was wearing my mother’s dress (updated from the 70’s), our old neighbors made the cake, friends made punch and appetizers, our friends that played in bands came down and sang. Our wedding was built on a community of friends and family. We had our wedding party marry us, chopping up the ceremony so everyone would share a piece of the day.
This is a great picture because it will always remind us how important that community is.
