In Love

March 27, 2015  •  5 Comments

This B&W series emphasize the soulful, loving connection that the couples shared. Removing color untethers the photographs from the realistic view we are accustomed to. It draws our attention to a smaller set of expressive elements and details.

 

I requested that the newlyweds keep their attention on each other, and asked them a variety of questions while photographing their responses. Can you guess what questions I asked? Please leave your thoughts here on the blog.

 

Approaching portraiture in that way enabled me to capture the couples interacting naturally rather than posing for the camera.

 

When I was asked, "what should we do?" my replies included, "Get closer", "Look at each other", "Switch sides"...

I can look at the photos over and over again and notice new details each time, so fascinating. Without the glitz of commercial weddings, the photos touch at the essence of the two people, and allow the viewer to look at genuine moments.

I love the black and white versions of this project. The images succinctly capture the bond between your subjects, and they capture a fascinating diversity. Very nice work Mark.
