“The only thing of importance, when we depart, will be the traces of love we have left behind.”

That’s a famous quote of the great philosopher Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965). Although this may refer to all kinds or forms of love, I found this fits in well when we talk about the love between couples and valentines.

I want to apply my documentary or photojournalistic approach to what people usually call ‘engagement’ or ‘pre-wedding’ photography. Obviously, it’s very different from any traditional approaches. Instead of dressing in a wedding gown and tuxedo, and being photographed with similar poses, in an environment setting up by a photographer, you'll spend time with your better half just as usual, while I’ll capture those intimate and candid moments.

It could be done anywhere, without any pressure. You can relax and enjoy yourselves, and I will be a quiet observer who will not interfere the unfolding romance. With this set of documentary photos, I hope it will be an honest reflection of your love story in real life. You may still want to have some traditional engagement type of pictures, but I’m sure your love story deserves an authentic record, which I believe you will treasure for many years to come!
