Primarily I anticipate the moment; forget couples jumping in the air with balloons, those type of images to me are clichés and already, out of date trends.
As a former newspaper photographer, I use my experience and tools of a photojournalist. I’m an unobtrusive documentary photographer telling your story with heart and soul. Most of what I capture is with available light, not just as a style but as a philosophy of shooting. By taking images in available light, I will record the essence of your day, authentically, beautifully and of course, the real moments.
Photographing ‘life,’ I use composition in the frame, geometry, form, light, and content to how I think and perceive the world.
I hope you enjoy perusing through my wedding portfolio. As you’ll see, I’ve shown only moments that are authentic and not set up by me as a photographer. Many photographers who shoot weddings do indeed hang the dress, or set the shoes, or make sure all the bridesmaid’s dresses are hung up and photographed. I will focus on what I find, and therefore not miss a real moment. Apart from the posed group shots, and a few of you and your loved ones together, my typical clients trust me to document their wedding day in a hands-off approach, telling the real story and as unobtrusively as possible.
My wedding portfolio is pretty extensive, feel free to browse around, check out my updated journal/blog, Instagram I’m fortunate to be listed as a Top 100 photographer in the world via WPJA, twice in the last five years.
