Events are fun, yet often also momentous. I feel honored whenever I get an opportunity to create images that document pivotal experiences and also add to them. (When I see photographs of key moments in my own life that show things I didn't observe happening at the time, my sense of those moments are magnified.)
There are celebrations of achievements, openings, joinings, and endings, and all of them can be enriched by the creation of images that capture and express the emotional life of those present. The best photographers do that well.
