Why We Do What We Do
Since this will be my first blog post on my new website I thought I’d take a post to tell you a little bit about Pink Dahlia Photography and what it stands for.
PDP is about relationships. How we relate to one another and how we relate to the world. Photography is, to us, a way to showcase our relationships, whether it’s with a boudoir session between the happy couple or a family shoot with a small or larger family we want you to look at our photos and see your love for one another in the way you are looking at each other, looking at the camera or just the relaxed nature of your pose.
We want to capture what you only see in rare photos in every shoot we do.
Looking at it written out like that kind of scares me, scares me because it’s a tough goal to live up to every day, it’s a touchdown at every game, a half-court swish at the buzzer, a perfect over-easy flip at every breakfast (or brunch, or lunch, or dinner, who are we kidding?). We know it’s a lot to live up to but the truth is we are pretty patient photographers. As long as you have a moment when you let your guard down and feel comfortable (we’re good at helping with that too) we can capture that beautiful shot.
These are a few of my favorite shots because I had to be patient, I had to wait for a connection and it worked out.
Right before she said, "Yes."
Right before their daughter said, "I do."
This was just after a joke about being new parents.
Right before she stopped spontaneously spinning
That’s what sets us apart from the rest, we will wait for that one special moment and SNAP! It doesn’t come around very often in a shoot but when it does it’s almost transcendent. When I see it later on a computer screen it almost makes me want to leap out of my chair (and sometimes I do). It’s a great combination of feeling like you did a good job and the joy of being able to give that back to someone, proof that you saw what they see every day: love and adoration.
That’s why I’m a photographer. That’s why I love what I do.
