Contemporary, Photojournalistic & Timeless Photography
Photography is my absolute passion. I strive to produce the most carefully crafted & artistic imagery possible. My philosophy is to emphasize true natural beauty and keep my pictures honest yet flattering. There's something very powerful about creating an honest and timeless image that captures the true essence of the subject.
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 look forward to chatting with you and learning your story.
"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. So it rained on your wedding day, what's more beautiful than a newly married couple laughing and all cuddled under an umbrella making a run for the limo? I keep my photography clean, natural looking and vivid capturing the emotions of the moment. Contemporary photography on the other hand is a more broad term. For me it borrows a touch of inspiration from modern fashion inspired poses, portable studio lighting techniques, and has clean "magazine like" or editorial feel to it while retaining an authentic natural look.
"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 imagery that is artistic and timeless. As any fine 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 an incredible photographer.
