i wanna capture love. ♥


As an aspiring photographer (who is still a wanna-be, rather), I have many broad pathways before me. And if I am truly serious about this art, or passion, or career--or whatever it turns into for me, I believe that I should have goals. Goals make things realistic; worthy of time and effort.

 So what are my goals--my aspirations for this pursuit of mine? Well, I want to capture beauty: everyday life, tiny delicate parts of God's unique world, people and places who He sets in my path...

..but most of all, I want to capture love. A.k.a., weddings + engagements. Happy people in love. Because there's so much beauty in all of that, and to have the opportunity to seize such moments...I think it would be bliss.

Now, I'm talking to fellow aspiring photographers here: have you ever come across pictures so gorgeous that you immediately think,

 "That's what I want to do. That's what kind of photographer I want to be--how I want to capture moments." 

Well, I had one of those "inspiring instants" when I found the "French Farmer's Market" ^^ engagement shoot via Green Wedding Shoes. I've seen a lot of engagement sessions, but this has to be one of  my absolute favorites. The stunning layout, lighting, poses...this is just exactly what I want to be doing, someday.  

Take a look..pure eye candy, folks.

Anyone else dying out there?? ;]

 Love is pretty. It needs to be captured. And someday, Lord willing and with much saving, working, and experience along the way, I'm going to do it.

  3. Aww! Cool pictures, I love her dress (though I wish it was a wee bit more modest :) And photography is so much fun :) Not that I am a photographer. A beginner is pretty sufficient for me :) I never really thought about which kind of photography I would want to do. I will think about that :)

    God Bless!

  6. I am sooooooo dying over those pictures. ;) Only I wish the dresses were less... skimpy. Those pictures would look so much better if they were a bit longer on the skirt and higher on the top. :/
    They were still BEAUTIFUL pictures.

    By the way, I'm an aspiring photographer myself, and I wonder if you would have rather gotten the Canon Rebel T3 than the one you got, the Nikon D3100. Just leave a comment over on my blog. :)

  8. This was so unbelievably gorgeous.

    You see, I have this thing with colors. So many colors on clothes you see out shopping (and this is one of the reasons I happen to strongly dislike shopping, actually) are flat and lifeless and old paint-esque. These, though...there's softness here that isn't in the flat colors. And brilliance, too. I love that so much. :D Thankee muchly for posting. This seriously made my day.

  12. So gorgeous!!
    I love taking pictures, and I've considered being a photographer once. But I still want to be a singer/songwriter. That's the one thing that has been on my heart for a very long time. And I think it's what God is calling me to do.
