I love exploring who people are. Genuine interactions, real moments, and pure emotion are what I love to capture. Getting to know my couples is the best part of my job. I get to meet so many amazing people, bond with them and share their wedding day with them. It's the best experience watching your friends get married and I get to do that every single weekend. I can't imagine living a life without photographing people. Photography is as much a part of what I need to survive as food and oxygen are - there is no me without photography. It cracks me up when people ask what my retirement plan is because it's the same as my before-retirement plan - photography. Creating art is what I do, it's who I am. It isn't just a hobby or past time - it's my life.
I approach weddings with a few goals in mind. I want to document the day, the moments, and the little events that happen - but I also want to recreate the emotion of the day in my images. I focus on creating artwork that places the viewer not only in that moment, but also within those same emotions. It's not just enough to document but there has to be a vision. Just like beautiful weddings take a lot of planning and work, so does beautiful wedding photography. It's not just enough to photograph a beautiful moment, person, or piece of decor but it has to fit into the story of your wedding day.
Robert Frank was an American street photographer, and his words express exactly my approach to wedding photography. Realism, or documentary photography, is not enough. There has to be vision as well. I'm not just taking photographs of your wedding - I'm telling the story of your wedding day, capturing your relationship, your love, and who you are. I want to give you personal artwork, a beautiful and emotional experience, to forever be able to travel back in time to your wedding day and relive it.
