I have been photographing weddings since 2000, which is eighteen years ago as I write this. I have photographed large elaborate events, where people invested a lot of money and time, and simple backyard weddings, where, for reasons financial or otherwise the couple chose to go small in size, but big in heart. To me, there is no difference. The key is in the connection between the two people in love. My job is simple, to be in the moment, their moment, and capture on camera the story of their day, of their love. Details, gestures, a smile, a tear through the lens can at times communicate what words cannot.
No matter the size, weddings are very personal affairs. For this reason I enjoy meeting with each couple and getting to know them. It is important for me to connect, to know what matters to them. Documentary style photography is about authenticity, about capturing the moment as it happens. This makes each frame timeless. The moment is real and so is its visual record.
My photography has been recognized through many awards and publications, but the only award that matters is to be able to say that I have connected with the couple, that we established a bond of trust that shows on the images. I am grateful to still be in touch with so many of the couples that I have photographed a long time ago and enjoy seeing their families grow and their lives evolve. As you are planning your very special day, I thank you for stopping by my page and looking at the images. If you like what you see, send me a message and lets connect. I look forward to getting to know you.
