Photographing weddings is the honor of my life - I don't take this role lightly and put my heart into photographing your wedding authentically, with a balance between attention to detail and letting moments happen naturally. Essentially, I am close enough to capture it all, but leave space for you both to embrace the intimate and chaotic, once in a lifetime moments with your people.
Put simply, my philosophy is to deliver a gallery that allows you to relive the celebration of your marriage and to edit the images in a way that will stand the test of time. Photos that you'll always look back on with a smile, hang on the walls of the home you share together, and can pass down for generations.
I prioritize the little moments as much as your first kiss.
I specialize in documentary-style photography - photojournalism.
I don't fabricate your wedding experience, because that would be a disservice to us both. In portraits, I prompt you. I read the room to catch a vibe of the love you share, your friendships with your bridal party, and how you interact with your family. We'll be goofy or vogue, or whatever is true to you.
While shooting, I'm thinking a million miles an hour. Dreaming up ideas and moving around to capture a different perspective. All the while, I'm calm and collected in demeanor. I'm not the type of photographer who will jump up and down waving my arms or being the center of attention.
I am someone who balances guidance and observance. I will give my best artistic discretion about where to stand for lighting, where to put your hands, and anything else that would make you feel most comfortable in front of my lens. But you are the stars of the show and I am there to observe and preserve.
After the party, I'll head home and tie your images up with a bow. I edit each image by hand with care and attention to detail. I edit true-to-tone, my images don't heavily lean toward warm or cool, unless the natural sunlight says otherwise. I love the vibrancy of naturally occurring colors and the mood of B&W - there is always a mix in each of my galleries.
I am not a heavy re-toucher, but will do my best to X any distractions or correct a blemish. You can see years of samples of my work on my Instagram. Over 4 years, it hasn't changed too much. But, art is ever-evolving.
