If you’re searching for a wedding photographer specializing in a documentary, fly on the wall approach, then you may have found the one for you. I’m a San Antonio photographer specializing in wedding photojournalism and a former news photographer hailing from the UK, living in San Antonio, Texas
The really cool thing is you can just be you, and we will handle the rest. I believe in documenting your day as honestly as possible. I hope you ignore us. I prefer to observe and photograph your experience quietly. Of course, I’m happy to help you direct some group photos and pics of the two of you. All I ask is for your trust that we will capture all the moments organically. After all, it’s not my day. It’s yours—your story.
I met my wife, from The Alamo City, on a cruise ship in 2002. We both were employed on board and started dating. We dated on land, crossing The Atlantic many times, visiting each other’s country, lots of Skyping, and miraculously, somehow, it all worked out. We tied the knot at Chapel Dulcinea, just outside Austin 2006. We live just south of the Hill Country, San Antonio, Texas.
I have over almost thirty years of professional photography experience and an interest in the arts since I was 13 years old. I drew and painted in an endless supply of joy and sketchbooks. I picked up my first serious camera when I was 15 and stayed hooked.
I believe photography is a unique medium. Wedding photojournalism is comparable to how other forms of photography capture. The following descriptions of my work also describe my particular way of thinking and are often described as documentary wedding photography or reportage wedding photography. I capture the fleeting and instant moments of life using dynamic symmetry, diagonals within my frame. In essence, dynamic symmetry, or more precisely, the Gestalt psychology principles, creating an atmosphere of balance, harmony, simplicity, and unity. When these all come together in a click of a button, I know I have captured exactly that ‘fleeting moment’ and geometric composition.
Typically, a precisely timed, one-off shot, not a repeatable moment on a wedding day or any other day. These ‘wedding life’ captures are unobtrusive and candid moments, without direction from me, your photographer.
