Something you should know off the bat, my approach to wedding photography is very different than what is typical in the industry. I’m sure you’ve already seen some of the gimmicks while planning the day. I am all about relationships and the ‘things’ that stir within us. People will be comfortable around me. They’ll feel calm. I won’t have to tell them what to do, where to look, what to do with their hands.
You won’t find me running around telling people what to do, hauling flashes and umbrellas from room to room, setting up shots I’m good and familiar with. I try and walk in with a sense of naivety and genuine curiosity. I capture the events as they happen. These events all have rules in some way, they can be incredibly orchestrated. But every wedding is completely different. You won’t see me fabricating moments for my own good, telling the bridal party to jump together, or hear me tell dad to hug his daughter before walking her down the aisle. He probably will anyway and if he does, I will capture that moment, because that is the moment that matters.
Planning an event of this nature can be headache inducing at times. After 200+ weddings, I have encountered almost every obstacle imaginable. I would love to help you in planning a wedding that is as stress free as possible – perfectly YOU – with plenty of time for loved ones, equal parts slowed-down and carefree, intense fun.
I offer all day coverage because the most memorable moments are usually unexpected. My goal is to tell the complete story. The most meaningful photos I’ve taken aren’t photos of a cake, table decorations, or the invitation you already sent out – they are photos of the in-between. The unscripted. The moments not on the itinerary. They are those small, breath-of-life moments few see.
