What is my approach?
There is more to this than just some pictures at your wedding. There is a connection, love, an emotion that is captured, there is a need for me as a photographer to capture these things for my clients and it excites the shit outta me! I love wedding photography, I love how each wedding day is an experiment. I love the challenge of trying to make more amazing images, each and every single time.
So, for the most part, your day is captured as it happens. I want to capture genuine moments that are real. I want to tell a story of your wedding day as it naturally happens.
While working with the creative portraits there is a some direction from me. This is a good thing, because composition, posing, angles and light are very important parts of a unique image. I know that not everyone is a model or has experience in front of a camera and that having a camera in your face all day can be daunting.
You won't find me asking you to move your thumb a certain way or freezing you in poses too much either. 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 which helps create natural, candid and real reactions.
Outside of the portrait photos, 100% of the images from a wedding day are documented as they happen without any interaction from me. No props, nothing fake. Real People and Real Weddings.
