Listen. Look. Love.
In the myriad moments of life, which ones to capture? The raw material of life is there, celebrated in weddings, the play of children, and the connection of family gatherings. It takes an experienced eye, with discernment at play, to define the beauty that exists in everyday experience.
We believe that the first step in capturing the celebration of a wedding, or the heart-connections of a family is not to look, however, but to listen. A photo that moves someone is the shutter that was snapped at precisely the right moment, in a flash of synchronicity that combines instinct with experience, and an eye for opportunity. The glance of a groom as he sees his bride for the first time, the unfettered delight of a child as she falls into the joy of the afternoon. Those crystalline moments are captured first not by looking, but by listening to what feeling our clients want to freeze forever. So first, we listen to the story our clients reveal to us, and then we design that story in images.
We look. We look into the hearts of our clients as they talk about the events they want to commemorate in photos. Often, when they say, “We want a family portrait”, they really are saying, “I’m proud of my family, and want to share that with the world.” We look to translate that pride into a well thought out setting, resulting in images that uniquely represent that client...beautifully lit images.
Then we love. We love what we do, we love seeing your face when we show you yourself at your most beautiful; your family at their most connected; your children at their most innocent. From the Wanderings of our Eye, we give you memories to treasure.
Aaron Hogan has been listening, looking, and loving his entire life, and took to photography professionally in 2006 to express that gift to a growing list of clients, whose sessions have taken him across the US and internationally in pursuit of the perfect image. He loves nothing more than to spend time with the people he will photograph, laugh with them, listen to their goals, and design a photographic story that captures them perfectly at that moment in time.
While he is drawn toward weddings, portraiture, and has a particularly soft spot for family & high school senior photography, his favorite subject is his beautiful wife, actress Jency Griffin Hogan. They married in 2011, and for once, Aaron relinquished his camera to a friend to document his and Jency’s own intimate wedding. They married on private land in rural St. Francisville, LA in July 2011. To view their wedding photo slideshow click here. To view their 15 minute wedding video, click here.
