I have changed this page time and time again and won't ever be satisfied. I don't really enjoy talking about myself, and I have even thought about getting rid of this page entirely. But, in an effort to help you get a small idea of who I am, I'll leave it.
Choosing a photographer for your wedding day is a daunting task, and getting to know each other a little is important.
I am a photographer, I shoot weddings, and high school seniors. My goal is to make images that will last lifetimes. Photos that you could put on your wall today, that will have a place there in 50 years.
Over the years I have been lucky to work with so many amazing people, when I go through old hard drives and files of images I have created I am blown away by the thousands of people who have put their trust in me to photograph them. It is a very humbling experience to be honest.
I'm a husband to a very understanding and patient wife and father to an incredible 11 year old boy, Ben. I have lived on Cape Breton Island my entire life and love it here. My wife and I own a CrossFit gym that is filled with the most amazing people you can fit under one roof. Keeping myself, my family and my community fit and healthy is one of the most important parts of my life.
I started photographing weddings in 2004 after a close friend convinced me to start. Over the last 14 years I have figured out exactly who I am as a photographer. It has been a long road, but one that I am fortunate to have.
If you can see yourself in my photographs then we should work together, if you have questions, please feel free to send me an email and let's chat.
Style is an expression of imagination.
I often am questioned on what my style is. This could be the hardest question of all to answer, because I don't know.
What I can tell you however, is how I photograph a wedding day. For the most part your day is captured as it happens.
While I want to say that I don't pose wedding photos, there is always a little direction from me as the photographer. Which is a good thing, composition, posing and light are very important parts of a great image. Not everyone is a model or has experience in front of a camera. Over the years I have learned that most couples want just a little help, to feel comfortable and most importantly to have fun.
Positions and guidance are part of the game, I do direct just a little bit and let you take over. Nothing stressful.
Outside of the portrait photos, 100% of the images from a wedding day are documented as they happen without any interaction from me.
Just be yourself on your wedding day, have fun and enjoy.
