Can you define love?
It’s not so easy to do is it? Google it if you want and you’re going to get inundated with definitions and philosophies. Love isn’t easy to explain, but it is possible to observe. Hopefully, you’re one of the lucky people who can see love in the eyes of your partner. There’s no doubt when we see people in love; there is just something that radiates from them. Photographing weddings and people who are truly in love has been the honor of my life. It has always been my goal to capture couples in photographs that will serve as a testament to love for the rest of their lives. Understanding a couple is crucial to being able to capture those moments. A photographer can’t just show up on the wedding day and hope to get lucky. If your wedding photographer hasn’t spent time getting to know you as a couple, how are they possibly going to know what to look for on your wedding day. The connection with your photographer is one of the most important parts of preparing for your wedding. At JSPStudio it starts with our first meeting, but it continues with our Editorial Engagement Sessions.
The engagement session is the first time that I get to observe a couple through the lens of a camera and I learn invaluable things about them. Each session is unique for the couple and represents some aspect of their story together. Seeing them in a relaxed, meaningful environment teaches me what to look for on their actual wedding day and, just as important, gives the couple a chance to know me and get comfortable being in front of the camera. My brides and grooms are always amazed at the photos from their engagement sessions and their wedding. Without the connection that we form together, none of it would be possible!
