Elegant,Contemporary & Artistic Wedding Photography

 "If you're going to portray love, you have to feel it. You can't do it any other way." -Audrey Hepburn

 Wedding photography is my absolute passion. There's something very powerful about creating an image that captures the most defining moments, the ambiance and feel of the day. Getting to know new people is one of my favorite things. Each couple has their own story and I try to communicate this in their photographs. A personal connection can really help bring out the story and character of the couple in the photos. I'm still in touch with many people years after their shoots and not surprisingly have made some friendships along the way. I strive to produce the most carefully crafted & artistic imagery possible. 

  My style simply put can be described as a mixture of Contemporary and Photo-journalistic photography. Photojournalism on a quintessential level is storytelling using photographs. I keep my photography clean, natural looking and vivid capturing the emotions of the moment. A contemporary style borrows a small touch of inspiration from modern fashion photography, advanced portable studio lighting techniques, and has clean "magazine like" or editorial feel to it while retaining an authentic natural look. My philosophy is to emphasize true natural beauty and keep my pictures true.  

          "There will be a point in time where you will want to look back at your wedding photos and remember what it was really like. Truth is photography that captures the essence of the moment and real emotions will naturally never go out of style. "  

    My goal is to make story telling imagery that is artistic and timeless while providing an enjoyable photography experience. As any form of art, photography requires patience to master and to develop different ways of seeing things. It is a continuous and expanding journey. Pushing the shutter button on a camera is one thing, but mastering control of lighting and evolving artistically is really what makes a great photographer. I look forward to chatting with you and learning your story.
