My philosophy of shooting is based on one very simple concept: Follow your heart. I feel that photography is about capturing life the way your heart sees it – that innate sense of what makes a beautiful and intriguing photograph. Without this “sense” wedding photos will be boring and cliche.
The greatest wedding photography will capture the true substance of your wedding - and will do it with style and a sense for timeless beauty. It will capture what you actually felt and experienced on your wedding day in images that don’t look like everyone else’s.
My approach is to blend in to what’s naturally occurring and let you be yourselves, then I document what I see with an eye and heart for meaning and beauty. I use photojournalism as my starting point, but my coverage is more than just recording what happens – it’s documentation infused with fashion and fine art. I call this approach “Fine Art Documentary” photography.
My work emphasizes real emotions, personalities and details. I rely on my instincts to be at the right place at the right time, my heart to envision the meaning, my mind to read the light, and my experience to do it well every time. These are the intangibles of good photography and are not things that can be itemized in a photography package – but are the most important elements of wedding photography that will stand the test of time.
