It’s often said that photography isn’t out there in the world, it’s right where you are, and so it was for Emma & Sam who returned home to their childhood memories and most importantly to family.
There was an immediate authenticity to Emma & Sam; an understanding of where they had come from and where they were traveling to.
All they had to do was connect to everything that made them – the church where a grandfather once ministered, the farm & village where they both grew up, the music that played through their respective homes (from gospel hymns to Ólafur Arnalds), a father & sister singing in the choir, a brother leading in the band, bridesmaids painting the signs, friends hanging the flags, parents working the farm and washing down the tables, and a loved one watching proudly on.
This was their story. A story made at home.
