How did you get into weddings?
I had been shooting ads for several years (adidas, Microsoft, Princess Cruises, etc.) and was often asked by friends to photograph their weddings. I eventually obliged and surprisingly loved it. It was so refreshing to photograph real life moments as opposed to photos driven by layouts and marketing strategy. I still photograph ad assignments, though I always look forward to the next wedding day.
How would you define your style?
Refined. Timeless. Inspired. My work is photojournalistic in that I am pretty quiet while shooting. I document all I see in the most flattering way I can find so an intimate personal story can be created. My images are well composed, uncluttered and have a way of stirring people's emotions. When people see the photos I want them to feel like they were there if they weren't and those in them to feel like they have never looked better.
How many weddings do you take on each year?
No more than 20. I have very high standards and my workflow requires a lot of time and attention to details.
Do you family group photos?
Yes. A wedding is a rare opportunity when people come together from far away. That said, I make these shots happen quickly and efficiently so everyone can enjoy their time together and I can focus on photos of your wedding day experience.
Do you work with an assistant?
I work with a second photographer. My colleague is a skilled, wedding photographer, not simply an assistant. Her job is to capture secondary photos. If necessary for a larger wedding, I will also bring an assistant.
