How I Work
My career as a wedding photographer began in 2005, and in the years since, I have been privileged to capture over 300 couples’ special days. Though every wedding is unique, some moments remain constant – the love between partners, the joy of gathering with loved ones, the tears and laughter that punctuate these momentous occasions. Even after photographing hundreds of ceremonies, I still get misty-eyed witnessing a couple’s vows and their loved ones’ reactions. Each wedding tells a different story, and I strive to document those stories in a photojournalistic, fine art style – focusing on authentic moments that will transport couples back to their wedding day for years to come. The photos of loved ones crying and laughing along with you will be treasured memories, capturing not just your wedding day but your distinctive love story. I feel honored to play a small role in preserving those memories for you to cherish.
My style strikes a balance between candid emotional moments and artfully composed portraits. With a relaxed, unobtrusive approach, I blend organically into the day’s events and interactions. Drawing from my experience in bridal fashion and fine art portraiture, I also try to use lighting to create dramatic, magical images at dusk.
My goal is for couples to feel comfortable being themselves, such that raw emotions and natural moments unfold genuinely. By the end of the night, I like to have hugs and high-fives with my couples!
To provide unmatched focus and care, I strictly limit the number of weddings I photograph each year. Shooting only 10-20 celebrations annually allows me to devote my full energy and attention to each couple. I never book more than one wedding per weekend, ensuring your special day has my undivided dedication. From start to finish, I am personally invested in capturing and delivering the highest quality images to represent your wedding. By selectively photographing and individually editing a small number of weddings per year, I can pour my all into providing an exceptional personalized experience. You will have my complete focus and commitment from capturing each moment to artfully finishing every photograph. My approach ensures you will receive an extraordinary set of images showcasing your wedding day story.
I love to edit your entire collection myself, rather than outsourcing the work. This guarantees consistency with my artistic style and aesthetic. You can expect professional editing and processing tailored to bring out the best in every image.
If your wedding venue is new to me, I’ll typically do a scouting session before the big day to scope it out. That way I can explore the site and find some great spots to take photos when the wedding rolls around. I’ll get a feel for where the best lighting is at different times and make a game plan for where to capture the ceremony, portraits, candids, and all the big moments. When it comes to ceremony locations, I’ve got you covered – doesn’t matter if it’s a traditional church wedding, backyard, ballroom bash, or outdoors in nature. Indoor or outdoor, huge or small, fancy or casual…I can adjust and shoot amazing photos of you and your partner tying the knot no matter what the setting is.
