What this photograph means to me.
A Father and his Daughter. Their dance.
Being a father, this images brings a lot of emotions. We try to stay strong as fathers. Whether that being the man of the family, the provider or the Dad to our children. It's not always easy working countless hours, struggling to make ends meet and doing our best to make something of ourselves. We want our children and family to be proud of us.
This photo takes all of that away and simplifies it. A father sending his daughter out into the world. As a wedding photographer I know that one day I'll be in this position and some day, someone will be taking a photo of me dancing. I can hope that day is very, very, far off. Haha. The happiness shown here, not only in their faces but in the people around them is amazing. It's what I want to be able to photograph at every wedding. Moments that turn into memories.
