It’s hard to find a category that defines what I do. I don’t think you can pigeon-hole me into one style or another. My focus is simple. I want to create images that convey the emotions that exist between two people and those around them. I look for dynamic expressions of those emotions that truly communicate the depth of feeling between my subjects. Every wedding and every couple has a unique spirit, and I strive to capture it in still images. When all those elements come together, I know I have captured the soul of the couple, the family, and the day.
I use different techniques to get these results. First, I am a photojournalist; seeing and anticipating the events around me and reacting to them. I try to stay invisible, unobtrusive, in order to capture the real image, not influence it. Second, I am a portraitist. There is a place for those “posed” images – The art is in creating posed images that flow, that look natural, that look….well….UN-posed. Finally, I am an artist. This is the most important aspect of my style. I am not content to shoot the same thing, the same way, everytime. I create images that are unique and special to each couple that I photograph. My posing style is free and easy, it’s about making you look your best – not stiff. I ask you to be yourselves, to flirt, to joke, to dance, to love, to kiss, to make sure this is the best day of your life….
