Okay now, let’s get deeply personal and it’s only fair because, on your wedding day, I will meet the most important people in your life.
I was an only child, a boy in a family made up of women only.
There was my mother, an architect, my grandmother, a tailor (she also did wedding gowns), and my aunt, who loved me like I was her own child. I was given unconditional love, and everything I am, I owe to these three women.
My mother gave me the passion for photography. She spent 20 years traveling and taking pictures. But the love for raw emotions was inspired by my grandma. One particular day will stay forever etched in my memory; I was sitting quietly in grandma’s studio as customers were coming in to try out the dresses she had made, and there was this soft light falling through a small window in the somewhat dark studio. I looked at her huge tailor mirror, and in that mirror, I could catch each customer’s emotion – this unique emotion when people are getting ready for something joyous, happiness mixed with hope. I was maybe 7 years old at the time but right then, I knew I wanted to keep capturing that perfect moment for the rest of my life.
