For as long as I can remember, I have had a crippling fear of forgetting. The smell of my childhood home, or how to navigate my favorite city, or what it felt like to be a particular age. I found that I could ease the fear of forgetting through photography. That's why for most of my life, I've been the person in the friend group with the camera, frantically trying to hold onto the feelings. Preserving a moment in a photograph gives me the peace of mind of knowing that I don't have to rely on my faulty memory.
Wedding days are full of heightened emotions - joy, and anxiety, and relief, and fear, and nostalgia, and loss, and excitement. I am a firm believer that if you really allow yourself to feel the whole spectrum of emotions, if you really allow yourself to be present with your people, that the photographs that follow will be more meaningful than any staged shot we could create..
