I can't remember a time when I didn't have a camera strapped across my shoulder. I have been photographing people, places and things since I was a kid. I always knew I would be an "artist", but I didn't catch the camera bug until I was in college as a fine art student. I decided to take a photography class so I could capture things of beauty to draw or paint. I was completely seduced by the medium and soon realized I could actually make a living with my camera. I've maintained a successful photography business for many years and I am fortunate to have never felt that this is "work" ... it is a privilege to document the most important days of one's life and I am grateful for the opportunity.
A wedding is like a fantasy. People are dressed to the nines, looking their very best and exuding incredible happiness. The smallest details have been given extraordinary care and no matter where you turn, there is something gorgeous to photograph. The joy and love surrounding the couple create the perfect stage for incredible photographs.
The most frequently asked question by potential clients is "what is your style"? It's very difficult to define, but I approach each wedding as the unique experience that it is. I am ready for the unexpected so each significant moment is documented with an artistic flair. I can best describe my style as wedding photojournalism with a touch of fine art photography. I document the day as it unfolds, without pestering you to endlessly "pose". Of course, there are images that every bride "must have". Your family would never speak to you again if you didn't include them in some "posed" photographs. With lots of experience, and careful planning ahead of time, those posed photos can be done quickly so that you and your impatient groom can get to your party.
