A big thank you to the editors of Love Wed Bliss for publishing Melissa and Aaron’s Engagement!
Melissa and Aaron are an amazing couple. When we met in the Berkeley hills to shoot their Engagement, it wasn’t difficult for me to get them talking about their love story. They gushed about how they met, shared knowing glances when they spoke about their feelings for each other and Melissa blushed with joy as she told me about how Aaron filled their home with roses when he proposed.
When I meet a couple I try to see their romance through their eyes, I try to feel what they are feeling in the hope that I can transfer the love between them to the camera, so that, in some way, I can freeze a moments in time that are much bigger than pictures – they are the preservation of memories. Earlier this year I attended Jax Grandmothers 90th Birthday – the most precious things floating around were her pictures – most especially the pictures of her and her husband. Their memories. Preserved. Good photography is priceless – I take my job very seriously. Engagement and Weddings are a time in the life of a couple that will never be repeated, but will always be remembered. In fifty years from now when my clients look at the pictures I took of them I want them to know that I did it with my whole heart, that the preservation of their memories was very, very important to me.
Photographing Melissa and Aaron’s Engagement was an honor. When these two look in to each others eyes……… you know its the real thing.
