Wow… long title…
Yes, I know. It’s not Christmas and it’s not December. But I still wanted to share some amazing images made by our very own Jon Alexander.
Enjoy and re live the season!!
Happy New Year!
This was a beautiful wedding in Tepoztlán Mexico. It was on 11-11-11. Cool date right?
I love this family, they are a pain to work with but I love them to death. This particular image is very important to me.
I know that it looks just like another small wedding family portrait. And that is exactly what it is.
What makes this image really important is that this is My family. My brother’s wedding day. 5 brothers and sisters, a beautiful bride and my mom. (I’m the one on the left).
What makes this image priceless is that this is the last time we were all together. Three months after this image was taken, my mom died.
This is the way I remember us all. Laughing, happy, loving…
We will always be able to remember this event in detail because of what I chose to do over 20 years ago; take photos, create images, save memories… You know I obviously volunteered to photograph my brother’s wedding. I love the man. He’s my hero. (With the help of my nephews Daniel and Bruno that are great photographers as well.)
Now we have “us” as a family. A memory that will last for ever. A priceless image.
I know that this is WHY I’m here. This is what I’m supposed to do. No doubt bout it. I’m here to help people remember through my work… To remember family, friends and everything that is important to them, to us… to me.
I love you mom.
