I never wanted to shoot a wedding. It wasn’t in the cards. When I first picked up a camera it was to make a statement about our world. I started when I was young, political, bold, I had an unchecked bias opinion, and I wanted to set the world right. Lives twist and turn, as mine did, as the video below shows, and now I find myself shooting weddings by an enthousiastic choice.
The power of photography in our personal lives immediately, and into the future is part of the statement I want to make with a camera.
I’m still young, not as bold as used to be, and what I do now isn’t about setting the world right. What I do now is about showing people what is right in front of them. Sometimes that means a far way from home but more often than not just around the corner. I shoot and share what my unchecked bias opinion thinks should be paused on and appreciated in a world of rapid scrolling feeds, click-bait news and the selfie.
This video speaks for itself and needs no explanation, it is just another reaffirmation for me on what I’ve decided is important to shoot.
