If you’ve made it to the about page, you probably like my style of shooting! - I like you already!
My approach is a little different from that of a ‘traditional’ wedding photographer.
For me, wedding photography is about telling a story, and to do that there needs the smallest amount of interruption possible. The absolute last thing anyone wants on their wedding day is a bossy photographer.
Reportage, documentary, photojournalism, and Candid. However you word it, it's about capturing the moments that happen naturally - Moments that won't ever happen again. Moments that you’ll look back at in years to come and will still evoke the same emotions you had when you were living it.
There are so many moments on a wedding day, that are missed because the photographers spend the entire day telling everyone to smile and coaxing horrendously cheesy grins out of people. I like to shoot the day as if I wasn’t there at all. That way natural emotion, whether it be smiling, laughing or crying, all happen without the influence of me. It will be a moment that will actually mean something to the person in the shot.
That being said, one of my favorite parts of the day, as you can probably tell by my portfolio, Is the couple shoot! Time for the two of you, to break away and have some more intimate pictures. This can take as little or as long as you want. Some couples only want 5/10 minutes whereas others prefer to take a walk through the wilderness. It's completely up to you.
All of these elements come together to form a perfectly rounded set of images, both art, and memories, for you to look back on for the rest of your lives!
