Some time ago, a Bride met me at the Studio door and - before entering - emphatically quiried, "You do Photojournalism, right? Because I don't want anything posed!"
I assured her that, having photographed weddings for other studios where "PJ" was their exclusive style, I would be more than happy to "collect" images for her throughout her wedding day, if that was what she really wanted.
Relieved, she entered the RCP Studio - whereupon she saw a gorgeous portrait of "Kasey" statuesquely featured in front of a huge bank of stained glass windows. "Oooooh, that's beautiful!", she exclaimed.
Hmmmm. Should I tell her that Kasey didn't just "happen by" those windows and that the image she so liked was more than just happenstance, or say nothing? I gently told her that the large print in front of her was the result of the Bride working together with me to create something fantastic which otherwise wouldn't have been created had she only wanted "collected" images - instead of "created" images as well.
Just a few weeks ago, RCP had the oppotunity to photograph Erin & Zach's wedding. We worked together to create some beautiful images which we both loved. Why not take the time to create beautiful, mind-blowing images which you'll treasure for a lifetime? Here are a few of Erin & Zach's images:
