I’ve noticed this years ago when photographing weddings and engagement portraits on location. Everyone loves water. And love the idea of being photographed near, or on the water.
My guess is this….water is a symbol of life. More specifically, new life. Which can be a metaphor for a new life as a couple or the promise of bringing forth new life with babies and a family.
Who knows? It’s my take…what’s yours? We love water…
And it makes a great backdrop.
