“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams
As a photographer, I have always been motivated by capturing those milestone moments that people wish to cherish for the rest of their lives. Let’s face it – it is easy to remember something as special as a wedding. But we only remember the big events…the “I do’s”, the cutting of the cake, etc. What we don’t remember are the expressions of our loved ones, the way our spouse looked at us the altar, and the many other small things that seemed to go by way too fast. After following my passion to photograph great moments, I realized how much weddings had an everlasting impact on my career.
Moved by Memories
After my first wedding, I was inspired by the amount of love I saw. Not just between the couple, but the love and joy shared by the bride and groom’s parents. I loved seeing the love amongst the guests, and the love for the children that danced on the dance floor so carelessly. Photography can capture those pure emotions that we want to hold onto forever. Memories often fail us. But photographs can act as our memories by being something you can hold in your hands and share with friends and family.
One thing I learned about weddings is that all of them are different. Of course there tends to be a general similarity between them. However, times and traditions are changing, so I am always kept on my toes. I have noticed that people are wanting uniqueness. They desire to stand out from the others. When planning a wedding, personal touches are added that make the memory of a wedding even sweeter. Because of this, I have gotten great experience with learning new techniques in order to capture moments in a way that is personal to my clients and without missing any special events or details along the way.
As a Washington DC Wedding Photography artist, I am drawn to and motivated by the love my clients share. Capturing that love is such an honor! If you are interested in booking your wedding with Rodney Bailey photography, please reach out! I’d love to discuss your vision with you.
