I received an email inquiry a few days ago with some very kinds words. The bride-to-be described my photos as "heartfelt". I had never really thought of my work in this way; at least, I never used those words. But that was truly a wonderful thing to hear. As mechanical as taking a photo might be with all the technology and the science, somewhere between the shutter and optics, there is a part of me, it seems, that shows through. I suppose this is what I had in the back of my mind when I met up with Sheyanne and Dan last Saturday evening. Here are a few of my favorite shots... I'm hoping there is a little extra heart in these... (and some cheesy-cheese mixed in) or they came from simply having a good time at the beach with some new friends. All I know is I'm going to keep looking for more of that elusive hearfeltness.
