Over the last couple months I’ve been really insecure about my style; mostly due to scanning so many bright and airy photographer IG pages. I wondered if I was going against the 2018 photography grain, and also wondered if that was a real bad thing.
I battled back and forth for awhile, and finally decided to confidently embrace my voice and learn how to express what I felt inside, fully and powerfully, in a picture.
That’s when I realized it’s about the shadows, highlights and contrast. The details, movement and colour. It’s the ability to mix broken darkness with extraordinary light. It’s how I see the world, and maybe that breaks the 2018 code, but I’m alright with that. So I’m gonna say peace out to the comparison game, and embrace this authentic, documentary and dramatic photography style.
There is so much I could say about this styled shoot, but it makes me even happier to let the photographs tell the story. 2018 brides? I’m ready for ya.
