Chicken Soup for the Photographer's Soul

As creative professionals, we have an affinity for continually scoping out new sources of inspiration that spark our imagination or just pull us in emotionally.

Today I'll just keep it simple and provide you with a few of our faves...

Brian Andreas - artist & storyteller
I came across this guy's work as my mother and I traveled from Orlando, Florida to Madison, OH two years ago. We made a stop at a restaurant in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia (home to a lot of talented, unique artists) where Brian's work was on display. In short, his stuff is colorful, crazy imaginative, and whimsical with each image containing simple poetic truths about life, love, relationships.

Read below some of my favorites of his:

No Words
I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.

Real Reason

There are things you do because they feel right & they may make no sense & they may make no money & it may be the real reason we are here: to love each other & to eat each other's cooking & say it was good. 

New City. New Opportunities.

Hello and welcome to our first ever blog post!! After relocating to Denver, Colorado, we decided that working for ourselves is the best option around. Photography is a shared passion of ours and we work the best when together, complimenting each other's creative perspectives and making each shoot run as smooth as possible. We created Love n Joy Photography to, well, capture the love and joy around us. (Cheesy, we know). Our lives are made up of precious fleeting moments. Why not try to capture some of these moments with beautiful, artistic photographs? Surround yourself with love and beauty! Remember the people you love, the good moments you've enjoyed, and those glimpses in time that draw you back to your past. That is our philosophy here at Love n Joy.

We've decided to act accordingly to the famous words of our beloved Dr. Seuss:

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose".
