If photographs are important to you I would like to become a trusted advisor on documenting your special event. Start with an engagement photo session that is meaningful to you. I will get there on my dime to make the photos in the continental United States. Looking for great flowers, a good DJ, tasty food, or an awesome live band? There's a chance I've worked with them already. Need help with designing your invitations or ideas for party favors I can help too. Your wedding day doesn't need the stress of highly engineered photos, we can plan your schedule to leave you the maximum time to celebrate with your friends and family, and include just the right amount of time to make photos that are valuable to you.
It wasn't so long ago that wedding photography was constricted by technology. Medium format cameras were great for posed photos and cookie cutter wedding albums. Today's digital cameras produce amazing photos in all sorts of lighting conditions making it possible to document a wedding and produce traditional photos and those cherished spontaneous and decisive moments.
While it is likely that someone you know has a pretty good digital camera your wedding is too big an event to leave to chance. Let your friends and family have fun on your big day and leave the photography to us.
So, what is it like to have me photograph your wedding?
You will see your photos in person before the buzz wears off from your honeymoon. No one likes to sort through hundreds of photos online, not even photographers, so we'll make it easier to experience our work and select the photos you love.
My style of photography is based on strong compositions, spontaneous moments, making images that are timeless and producing keepsakes of the highest quality. Whenever possible I like to show a preliminary edit of photos of the day so far at the reception. I prefer a light touch to photo editing/retouching, and clean album designs.
Traditional photos have an important role in wedding traditions and I enjoy making them. I will also put extra energy into making art for your home that you'll be proud to display, and images that will tell a story in an album. My years in television production have a great outlet in still photography. Great films are a collection of great stills, but getting great audio and video at a wedding is nearly impossible. We will manage the production of your photos so you don't have to worry about the quality.
I have posted a range of my wedding and photojournalism work online for you to browse, but we need to meet in person to see if there is chemistry between us. We'll be spending a fair amount of time with each other so we better click.
Picking a photographer isn't something people do very often, and there are more ways weddings are different from each other than alike. Seeing a photographers' absolute best work needs to be balanced by seeing more images from entire weddings to get a better sense of what you will be getting.
In the long run my goal is to help you get off on the right foot with documenting your life together. Answer your questions about photography. Be there when your next major life event needs to be documented. It is part of the reason I'm working to get 1 Life, 1,000 Words off the ground, because we all have a documentary photographer in us waiting to come out.
