My favorite style of shooting is in a photojournalistic way. Catching all of the expressions in between the posing and crafting shots. There are those great candid photos when people aren't trying to look their best for the camera. They are unaware that their picture is being taken and really, genuinely, just having fun being themselves and enjoying time connecting with people they care about the most.
Some of the deepest connections I have been able to see through my camera are the ones between a bride with her parents and also the groom with his parents. A lot of the time these photos are not the most technically correct or the lighting may not be perfect but in my book expression always wins, hands down. If there is no feeling behind a photograph it can feel dead or un-alive. Once in a while you can catch a look, touch, or a hug between two people that requires no words to be said. You can tell whats in their hearts just by seeing whats been captured.
As a parent I can empathize with the feelings rushing in during this great event in their lives. I know when it's time to give my precious daughters away or hug my son tightly before he stands at the alter to say his vows, I will most likely be showing some of these great emotions. I won't care what the lighting was like or if I was showing my best side. I just want to look back at those photographs and be able to remember how I felt at that particular moment in time.
