Spontaneous Moments

About a week ago, I had the opportunity to attend an event that was close to my heart for a couple of reasons. One, it was a marriage seminar. Two, it involved photography! I love marriage and I'm always reading to learn more about growing into the husband God has called me to be. And If my wife and I can help others along that journey, I am definitely all for it!

So, it was a lot of fun for me to be able to not only attend this event, but to be able to take the photography for the event too! I was able to use the 43" Apollo Orb Speedlite Softbox I purchased recently. I gotta say, I absolutely love this softbox; it produces a beautiful, soft light that is great for portraits of couples. Look forward to a full review in a future post. Feel free to take a look at the gallery: http://www.jasonhemsoth.com/unidosparasiempre

Most of the couples were a little hesitant at first, and after taking a couple shots, warmed up to the camera and then we got really nice, warm smiles from most of them. I was pleasantly surprised with one young couple, though. As they walked up to the area we were shooting, she immediately reached over and gave him a kiss on the cheek. We all erupted in laughter afterwards. It was a spontaneous, yet genuine moment that I was grateful to catch on camera. It reminded me of why I love shooting couples. Celebrating the love between two people is a true gift from God.

It also reminded that you always have to be ready to capture the moments as they arise. You may plan things to go a certain way, but be ready when they take a slightly different turn than you expected - because sometimes that's when the most beautiful things happen.
