Passion is what I feel this image I photographed for this couple emotes. I was being interviewed for an upcoming issue of Engagement 101 where I was asked “What is the most important element for a successful shoot?” and some might reply that it look pretty, or have the couple involved in their favorite activity or that the setting be special. But my answer was that it must evoke a mood. Only then does the image resonate. And that you can’t expect the mood to come from anywhere else but from where it is, there, in the couple’s heart. And as the photographer, to receive that; to be open to it. And to show their passion back to them.
