“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
— Annie Leibovitz
Miranda is one of the very first people I photographed, professionally, and in many ways, gave me more than I could ever repay through her word-of-mouth support. I’m hoping you can see the joy she gives off. I’m hoping you can see how much Miranda and Trevor love each other. And more than anything, I hope these images can act as a small repayment of the debt I owe one of my favorite people in the world.
I put the quote from Annie above for a couple reasons. First, it is one of the ways I conduct my business and find connections with my subjects. I want my photographs to be more than pretty, and more than technically sound. I want images that show the personalities of the people in them. Developing temporary, platonic crushes on my clients allows me to get there with much greater regularity than if I were to simply look for good light. I’m always searching for the little quirks and unique qualities that their friends and family love about them. Second, I absolutely fell in love with these two as a couple, so it felt appropriate. I had high hopes and expectations for Trevor, since I have known Miranda for so long, and with a very happy heart I can say he met every qualification you would want for your friend to find in a spouse. I don’t talk this way often, however, it sure seems like these two were made for each other. (even if Miranda has the good common sense to be a Duck fan, and Trevor roots for the Huskies)
Allow yourself to feel the emotion and get lost in their day. “Honk if you think the bride is cute.”
