So… people it's official, Setfour Photographers is now 2 years old. In the midst of busyness, we didn't want this day to go in vain. We clearly remember when being able to "live off" photography was just a distant dream, something that only the incredible and the most talented people in the world did. We never grew surrounded by "creatives", our parents were too busy trying to give us the best life they could give so we could go into the world and become productive and successful people, and by successful they meant making lots of money.
We used feel that we had no right to photographers since we never attended an art school, or have a certificate that validates our "professionalism", but we discovered that photography is not profession, but a way of life. We are still in the middle of this journey trying to discover ourselves, and it hasn't been easy. And the reason that it is not easy is because this project is not even about photography. If it was, we could probably find the solutions by Googling or by buying another book about "fine art photography".
One thing is certain, we are truly thankful. There is not a better way to live doing what you love the most. Which for us is sharing conversations with strangers we meet every weekend, making new friends, being able to be present during one of the coolest day of people's lives.
We truly want to thank all the couples that inspire us every weekend with their genuine and honest stories. Everybody who trusted us and opened their hearts in front of our cameras. Our friends and family that have been supportive during this time. All of the creatives on the internet that inspire us every day through their stories and work, we hope to meet all of you one day.
