Extrait

Foreword

Imagine my surprise when I received a message on Twitter not long ago from my childhood pal Kathryn Hamm, asking me if I would be willing to write a foreword for the book she was writing with photographer Thea Dodds. My response was a flattered “yes,” only because I knew that anything Kathryn was a part of had to be amazing.

Even so, as I considered the book’s title and flipped past the cover page, I began to experience some writer’s remorse. Quite honestly, I was thinking to myself: Yes, I’ve been married (twice), but I’m a musician. What the hell do I know about photography? And more importantly, what do I know about same-sex weddings? Absolutely nothing. So, I went into this feeling very insecure, like maybe I was the wrong woman for this job. Seriously, did Kathryn not remember that back in school, I was the queen of CliffsNotes and skipping class?

But as I turned the pages, it all started to become clear. I had an emotional revelation. This book is about capturing and celebrating LOVE. And I DO know a little about love, as it is one of my favorite emotions! I write songs and sing about it all the time. It is all encompassing, knows no limits, and is the most universal and equalizing virtue of our humanity.

Like love, I can’t imagine our world without artistic expressions like music or photography. They offer powerful truths about ourselves and our pasts; where we were, what was important to us, and how we felt. And in the case of this book, how far we have come! 

The New Art of Capturing Love moves me. It sings to me. The images are beautiful, and filled with an urgency for expression. Ever so important because, as on any wedding day, the moment is now, and then it is gone in a flash. When the wedding is over and the guests go home, the photos and the memories are all that remain of the day.

But this book not only offers an amazing collection of images of love between two people, their families, and friends, it also offers a practical and insightful step-by-step instruction for photographers on how to capture these unique wedding moments. It breaks down a million and one reasons why approaching a nontraditional wedding may require a different set of skills and considerations, and in this book lie many ideas and solutions. 

The photographs in this book are not snapshots. They are poetic statements, curated by Kathryn and Thea, and crafted by photographers who know precisely how to combine the essential elements to bring forth an image that stirs a deep emotion in us. Just like a songwriter, this is a photographer’s gift, and when accomplished so finely, the viewer’s experience is like hearing a great song that instantly becomes an important emotional thread, woven through your life forever.

Having spent some time with The New Art of Capturing Love, I realize now that I do know something about photography and same-sex weddings. And that is this: there is no better time than the present to celebrate and demonstrate love in its many beautiful expressions, and this book offers an engaging path toward that end.
I hope you’ll be as inspired by it as I am.
—Martie Maguire

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, useful and inspiring for gay & straight couples alike! 10 mai 2014
Par nycbucky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This gorgeous and inspiring book should be a must read for gay, lesbian and straight couples (and their wedding photographers) alike. It beautifully frames (pun intended) so many issues surrounding capturing authentic and captivating images of same sex couples many of which I wasn't even aware in planning my own gay wedding. The book will open your eyes to how so many of the engrained norms of traditional wedding photography simply don't work for couples of the same gender. And that should be an eye opener for straight couples to challenge those assumptions as well. At the end of the wedding day, any bride or groom wants to have captured pictures that last a lifetime - and this book will help them do just that. On top of it all, the photography of couples included is just beautiful -- always giving me a smile as I marvel at how far we have come as a community. So glad this useful tool also serves as a document of our progress.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Understanding fresh perspectives the world of LGBTQ Weddings 28 octobre 2014
Par Andrew R. Ebon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The New Art of Capturing Love represents itself as The Essential Guide to Lesbian and Gay Wedding Photography. That is true, but the book is far more all-encompassing. Certainly, it is written, in large part, through the eyes of a wedding photographer and all interesting possibilities in LGBTQ weddings.

The Co-Authors are:

Kathryn Hamm, President of GayWeddings.com, the pioneering online wedding boutique and resource for same-sex couples. Kathryn also serves as a member of the WeddingWire Education Team.

Thea Dodds is an award-winning photographer and Founder of Authentic Eye Photography.

The overall tone of ‘Capturing Love’ is warm, thoughtful, and illuminating. While the world of heterosexual weddings, including various religions, cultures, and ethnicities, have roots and practices dating back thousands of years. The presence of same-sex marriage, from a legal standpoint (in the United States), is a product of the new millenium. In a flurry of legal proceedings during recent months,

“Same-sex marriage is legal in a majority of U.S. states and recognized by the United States federal government. Same-sex marriage is legal in 32 states, the District of Columbia, and ten Native American tribal jurisdictions.”

Source: Wikipedia

Both, in words and pictures, the authors share the nuances, challenges, options, and potential land-mines that are faced by the wedding couple and wedding professionals that surround them. As expressed by the authors, you will feel the many points of view, converging on the event.

Assume Nothing: There is nothing boilerplate about a LGBTQ wedding. Even the most seasoned wedding professional, reading this book, will think, “Wow, I never considered that!”

Some examples cited include:

PDA – Public Display of Affection – Is the wedding couple comfortable with PDA? Have they ever kissed in public? Will they be comfortable with it?

Family Acceptance – What are the parental politics? Are they accepting or not-so-much? How about other family members?

Wedding Attire – These decisions are as varied as can be. Explore softly, listen intently, understand.

Rapport between the wedding couple and wedding professionals is paramount.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Kathryn Hamm and I are both part of the WeddingWire Education Team. As of this writing, we’ve been part of four out of five WeddingWire World conferences. Kathryn has a gentle way of addressing tricky issues, without making people feel uncomfortable.

And sometimes, she is direct. At our second WeddingWire World in Washington, D.C., Kathryn pulled me aside and said, “There’s something I need you to do for me… (without missing a beat) Stop saying Bride and Groom, and begin saying, Wedding Couple.”

The de-programming of 35+ years in the conventional wedding industry was going to take some time. I realized, immediately, this was good advice, and it wasn’t about being politically correct. It was about being inclusive. Now, when I complete a presentation, I flashback to remember how many times I got it right, self-corrected myself, or missed the brass ring. I’ve shown a lot of improvement :)

Understanding What is New to Us

Every wedding professional should read ‘Capturing Love’, not just for business reasons, but to see the world, more clearly, through the eyes of others. That is the meaning of empathy, and it’s a powerful thing.

I’d tell you more, but absorbing the narrative and images are a personal growth experience. Enjoy it at your own pace.

Great insights into the potential differences between what some may call "traditional" weddings and "non-traditional" weddings. These terms are not meant to offend, by the way. This is a must-read for professional wedding photographers who have a diverse clientele.
