HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My approach is to shoot mostly in a photojournalistic style throughout the day. I see my strength as a documentarian; and have an ability to connect with people very quickly. This creates a fun and casual atmosphere for my subjects which allows me to slip into the role of a peripheral observer. Ill be talking to your mom and your aunt but I observe and see special moments that happens in between that I think takes big part to tell the story of the day.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My connection with couples is the most important component to my business. It allows me to document them in the most honest moments they have together. I want you to remember the real smiles, expressions and the moments that happened. I will be there to capture these moments and help you remember how you felt every moment on your big day!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WEDDINGS?
I am truly honored that couples invite me to one of the biggest day of their lives. But the biggest reason why I love weddings is because I get to capture truthful moments with movements and emotions that tell your story.
WE ARE SHY IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA
I am the same but I usually tell people in the first 30mins you will forget the camera. Maybe its me talking to you two or maybe its going to places where you two have special memories that helps you two get in the zone. I promise you that we’ll slip into moments where you two can just be yourselves and engage with each other. I aim to catch in between genuine moments you two share and I don’t like to interfere in the natural flow of things.; maybe its just a giggle, or a quiet moment where its just a hand hold. Whatever that is, I’ll be there to capture it.
