Alea Lovely translates emotion into art.
One should never have to sacrifice emotion for beauty. Being a photographer is more than taking great photos. For me, it means seeing what a moment feels like, and falling just a little bit in love with every person that sits in front of my camera. Their crooked smile, the way their eyes light up, seeing them how someone who loves them would. I look for those beautiful idiosyncrasies that make them unique and fall in love with them, because it’s hard to see flaws through the lens of love. Wedding photography for me is not about taking pretty photos of the "stuff" but capturing images that move you emotionally and will stand the test of time.
Your dearest moments...
It's not rare that you'll see me cry at a wedding. Being empathetic and emotional is part of the job. I care about these moments just as much as you do. How you remember these moments wholly depends on how the person behind the camera sees you. Who will you bestow that honor and responsibility?
