The true story about a photo comes to life when it is put in context. I have been working on putting together a portfolio of images for my website and iPad. I started by just putting up the best images that I thought would represent my work but I found myself struggling a bit. I was caught between posting the most beautiful photos I could find and those that told the complete story of what I was capturing. In the end I came to the conclusion that if you want to put together a portfolio of work as a storyteller, you need to put up a summary of the stories you’ve been working on. It won’t capture the entire story by picking just a one-liner or catch phrase from the whole piece.
Below is a quick post from David and Esana’s Civil ceremony and blessing. Both events were done on the same day and in the same venue. I covered this whole event on my own.
