Fathers

My father, even after being gone for thirteen years, still inspires me to create.

My dad was a creative himself and always encouraged me to think deeply with my photography. I have a card on my desk from him that reads, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

This year I’ve wanted to put more of myself into my wedding work and make the images more personal to me. I decided to spend time creating portraits of each father I meet—because it’s what I would want if it were my wedding—and because I wish my sister and I had a portrait of our father from our wedding days.

This is Katy’s father….my favorite so far this year.
