Wedding Photography

Chronicling the Big Day 

I can't think of a higher honor than being asked to photograph a wedding.  It's one of the most important days in a person's life.  Being entrusted to capture memories of the experience is an enormous responsibility.

I want my images to be clear and direct.  I think about that one person who couldn't make it to the event for whatever reason - there's always someone like that, a frail aunt who lives far away, for example.

If that person were to see the photograph that I am about to shoot, would it help them get a sense of what it was like to be there?

If not, then the image hasn't succeeded, and neither have I.

There are no second chances at a wedding.  There are only moments, and those moments pass by very quickly.  You need to work fast, and your skills need to be up to the task.

When it all comes together, there's nothing more rewarding than photographing a wedding and capturing special memories for a couple who are about to embark on their new life together.

Light happens.  Be ready.  Shoot hard.
