"What makes a photographer great, in my opinion, is his or her ability to capture the moments of authenticity- the fleeting glances, the subtle graceful gestures, the raw exchanges. A great photographer's images take you by the eye and lead you back into the scene. They make you feel. Such is the photographer I found Ernst Jacobsen to be as I scrolled through the images he took of a wedding I recently attended."
