Anyone who knows me, probably realizes that it doesn't take much for me to cry....I cry at commercials or at the sight of anyone else crying, whether I know them or not. Now, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can happen at less appropriate times. At each wedding I've photographed, I end up crying during the dances, especially the the parent dances. Most likely, it's because I am a parent myself and the emotion that I witness through the lens touches my heart. We are privileged to glimpse into their little private world as they exchange loving words and hugs. At one of the weddings, as I pressed the camera to my face intent on getting "the shot", and as tears ran down my cheeks, I heard someone say, "Look, the photographer is crying!" Yes, I was. Good thing cameras don't rust! Just another reason why I love photography, being able to capture those moments that touch your heart. Just remember as you are packing up for the event with your camera cards, flash, batteries, lenses.....make sure you bring kleenxes!!!
