Photography is so about so much more than an “instagramable moment”.
Imagine this- You open your gallery and you are immediately transported back to that moment.
The way the sand felt between your toes.
The way your baby smelt resting on your chest.
The combination of butterflies and absolute calmness you felt locking eyes down the aisle.
You have some amazing images you immediately want to share and print.
But you also have your story.
Images of your guests tearing up at your vows and laughing at your speeches.
Your toddler throwing a tantrum and hiding behind a tree, but also the comfort they seek in your arms.
The way they looked at you when you weren’t looking.
The gum showing, nose scrunching, pure joy and laughter face you never see because it isn’t something you can replicate in a mirror.
Even the hard tears that fall as you hear your Fathers voice again in a recording during a first dance with your brother.
Your moments, exactly as they are.
