ART


Where art and emotion
collide.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. 

Aristotle

Your wedding photography should not be compromised. When the day comes to end, you exit the venue, and you reflect on how fast the day went by. The memories in your mind will be forever, and the beautiful photography will paint the picture just as it once was that day.

My goal is to not only tell the story of your day, but to create incredible images that balance art, storytelling, drama and emotion. I strive for a unique style that is inspired from movie cinematography. Lighting is the most important aspect of great photography and with years of experience and knowledge in how to craft lighting in a way that invokes us within. Posing and prompting my subjects brings together the chemistry, emotion and natural feeling to an image. Take just two minutes to watch this heart warming video that showcases my work from last year.

Your Wedding Day


Wedding Day

As the day begins and families prepare for the big day of celebration, getting ready has to be one of the most emotionally fueled portions of the day I feel. It's the last time where the parents see their child as a single person and taking that next step in life. Mothers helping their daughters prepare, fathers seeing daughters for the first time. Parents filled with pride and joy of their sons. 

Photographing the bride and groom has to be my favorite part of the day. When I get on location I try to seek out atmosphere and lighting first. Or visualize how I can create the light for that space with some trickery. Many people find that I bring a dramatic, enduring and natural look to the finished image. I really want the audience to feel what they are feeling in that moment. My goal is to make it look like a screen shot from a movie. Many people thinking posing is stiff and awkward. People say, oh, I just want candid. Candid rarely ever makes any one look great. If that was the case we wouldn't all be taking selfies looking up at the camera! Great direction/posing comes from lots of experience and learning. I like to call it setting and prompting. Getting them in the scene, letting them get comfortable, set the body positions (no double chins, posture, etc)  and prompt them for emotion/action/reaction. When I get the shot, I launch into the air with a big F_ yeah and they get pumped. This excitement carries on and we plunder around find interesting spaces and making beautiful images.

Ceremonies can take place in so many various locations. From the bright beach settings, to the intimate lighting in a church. The goal here is tell story from not only what's happening at the alter, but also in the audience. Mom wiping her tears, children playing in the aisle and bridal party patiently observing. From wide angle to super tight close ups to see the emotions. When you have photographed as many weddings as I have, you can pretty much anticipate every moment and where to find them.

Bridal parties come in all shapes and sizes. From the charter bus of 26 deep, to only their best friend. Some are wild and crazy and some are low key. Generally I observe the bridal party and the synergy early on to get an idea of the energy I need to show in the images. I go with the flow and aim to make everyone look more great than silly. Classic, cover style group shots and images that show the energy of the party.
