You are about to embark on a journey and I want your photos to represent you. As a couple. On the happiest day of your lives.
I promise to capture your wedding as it happens. I will take photos at your request. I will hold your bouquet. I will fix your hair. I will tell you where to stand. Or I will do none of these things. I am there for YOU.
Your wedding is the time for me to creatively capture your day as it unfolds. I will start when you want me to start and end when you want me to end. I will lie on the ground, stand on a chair, or hide behind a bush to get the perfect shot.
I try my best to stay out of the way. I do not want to be seen as a distraction and one of the best compliments I can receive is that someone barely even noticed me at the wedding. I try to be stealthy.
I love developing relationships with the bride and groom. I want your personalities to shine through the photos. I want someone to look at your pictures and say "That looks just like so and so...".
If I had to brand my style of photography, I would say it is a creative mix of photojournalism and contemporary photography. Or...
I love interesting angles and locations. I do what I like to call "minimal posing". I will scout out a location, put you in it and let you go. I tell my couples to be relaxed and do what comes naturally to them. Kiss, hug, snuggle, laugh or talk.
Show me who you are.
