WHY I TAKE PHOTOS AND HOW I CREATE STORIES
I believe the characteristic of a good photographer is their ability to connect. A good photographer should always connect with their subject, resulting in a photo that connects people to a moment that was captured. That’s what memories are, after all — a close and personal link to a moment, framed by what we saw there. These connections are what make a good photo a great one. These connections are what I live for. I think you’ll find my enthusiasm is evident in the quality of the photos I take. I also believe the best photos – the moments you hire me to capture – are created when they’re sincere.
I shoot quietly and from a distance which allows me to shoot the wedding from a guests perspective. I don’t arrange your guests or change your plans. My role in your wedding is an observer. I wait to capture emotions as they unfold, the only thing you may hear is my camera’s shutter. I don’t follow trends or mimic styles, My framing, lenses, composition and perspective with my editing style – these are my artistic values. I use these values to fine tune and tell your story in my most effective and natural way.
