Ask any bride to describe her wedding day and chances are she’ll respond, “It was all a big blur”.
That’s why you want capture the entire day on film for posterity (especially for your future children, who will get a big kick of seeing Mom and Dad back in the day). Photographs ensure that you will be able to relive the day decades from now.
The Wedding Day is absolutely the most exquisite moment in a person’s life. Nothing that has happened to them until then, and very little after will ever have more excitement, sentiment or meaning to them.
I will document your wedding with natural photographs that capture the true moments of the day, from putting on the brides veil to the last cheek-to-cheek. With my unobtrusive photojournalistic style, mixed with just a touch of portraiture, and my responsiveness to your wishes, I create memories that are as unique as your wedding.
The moments that define the spirit of a wedding day may not always be the most obvious ones – a telling glance between sisters, the ritual of dressing the bride, a quiet moment between newlyweds. All this may be just beyond the circle of celebration. I tell the story a wedding with the same insight and freshness that distinguishes my work as a leading portrait photographer. Clients come to me for wedding photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime and for images that bring back the natural beauty of the moment.
I take a very personal approach to weddings and to my clients. I make sure that I understand your expectations and what is important to you so there are no unhappy surprises on your wedding day or when you first see your photos. I accomplish this by making time to talk with you about your wedding day, understanding the photos that are most important to you, and making sure that we are on the same page before your wedding day. This ensures that you feel confident in your choice of photographer, and it is one less thing you have to think about on your wedding day.
If you know this person, wouldn’t you prefer that they enjoy your wedding day, and not have to worry about photographing it? Speaking as someone that takes their camera with them everywhere, there’s a good chance that while your uncle/cousin/co-worker etc. will take quite a few photos at your wedding, there will be a point when they just want to dance, eat, drink, mingle, etc. They should be able to enjoy themselves!
-While someone may be an excellent landscape/street/macro photographer, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll make a good wedding photographer. Aside from having experience shooting weddings, I am also always looking at wedding photos, browsing wedding magazines, attending workshops, keeping in touch with the industry, etc. This gives me a specific set of tools that other photographers may not have.
-Backup! We’ve all heard of Murphy’s Law. Since weddings only happen once, your photographer needs to be prepared for anything. I prepare for the inevitable by having multiple cameras, multiple lenses, multiple flashes, etc. If I drop a camera, I have another. Break a lens? No problem. Flash dies? I have a replacement on deck. I make sure I have plenty of charged batteries on hand and gigabytes worth of extra memory cards. This ensures that there is not a single point of failure.
-Backup! Since accidents can happen on location and at home, I always make sure that I have multiple copies of your wedding photos on separate hard drives, one of which is off site. I have a system in place for transferring your photos from memory cards to hard drives, and I am always over-protective when it comes to data loss. Again, there are no do-overs for wedding photographers; best to be prepared.
