In my humble opinion, the art of photography is best produced when there is nothing in the way between the eye, the heart, the subject and the inspiration. Kinda like a golf swing, the best ones come with little thought, just a relaxed reaction, no analysis, just swing. It’s the analysis for me that creeps in at times, interrupting the calm for the litany of details, concerns and questions, such as,“ is this the right lens, am I too wide, too long, flash, no flash, drag the shutter, white balance, ISO, bounce, hard light, where’s the light. The short hand that photographers speak speed through my mind as bride and groom meet for the first time or have their first dance, embrace their parents, love their friends; a thousand moments and a thousands choices. It’s at this time when the anxiety has built and rush of the day has peaked that I take a deep breath and pray, “show me God how to best bless them, direct my eye, be the best in me.” Some would say that the photography of capturing genuine moments is something left to chance, I would say it’s taking the chance. Faith is the key. With all that said here are some images from Erin & Ryan.
Their wedding was a beautiful blend of glamour, fun and a little funk, thank you both and God Bless.
