As a photographer, I'm unobtrusive yet involved. I've attended and shot possibly over a hundred weddings and I fall in love with my subjects every time. That's a good thing though, as it has allowed my lens to deflect and then reflect their natural beauty. However, I never direct the couple nor the attendees of the wedding. I merely observe at the sidelines, wait steadily for the spectacle to naturally take place. And then I click the shutter button.
Like an energizer battery, I go the extra mile. I like keeping things fun and interesting even if the means to do that is by lying on the ground, or climbing up a ladder or bending over backwards. And I never put my camera down.
I don’t just take pictures. I try my best to capture the moment, not just what things or people looked like, but how alive they were, how heart-felt their emotions were during that moment. And I preserve memories.
That memories don't fade cause they're powerful enough; that the mind may forget but the heart cannot - I agree with both statements. Ain't it better, however, to capture it in film and preserve it, just in case those mechanisms fail.
That's where I come in. That's what I do best.
