What will working with me on your wedding day be like?
There are a lot of different ways to answer this question, but the easiest way to describe my wedding photography approach is in a ‘photojournalism’ style. Documenting the day is more of a hands-off approach; for the most part I will be observing and photographing events as they unfold with little intervention and direction. I prefer to photograph a wedding organically as it happens, as opposed to creating posed or inauthentic moments. Throughout the day (and when necessary) I will occasionally step in and offer my advice on placement, location and lighting, but I avoid outright-directing a wedding so that you can experience your wedding day as you should – I want you to be able to truly live in these moments. To create image diversity, I will add in traditional photography as well as creative and artistic photography.
How I approach wedding photography
I truly believe that establishing a closer connection with my wedding clients is a key ingredient to creating genuine, emotional storytelling. Photographs are one of the few remaining tangible artifacts from your wedding. Being able to reconnect to those emotions through photography will bring you back to that special place in time, over and over again.
When telling a couple’s story, I believe capturing the details and surroundings are very important. I take time to photograph venue and architectural images along with the smaller details that are often overlooked, but provide context to your wedding day.
Whether you and your guests are in a place of reverence or jubilant celebration, I want to capture those moments in a personal way. While some elements of photography can be subjective – the emotional connections are what will ultimately prevail through time.
Let’s be real – weddings can be overwhelming to plan. There are so many options, so many vendors, so many moving parts – coordinating all of those variables can be so stressful. But it doesn’t have to be! Throughout the planning process, I will be there for you to offer advice and help you construct a wedding day timeline that incorporates all of those important moments, while allowing you time to relax and enjoy your day.
Make time for creative photography
If there is anything I would implore – please make ample time for creative photography. Most of your day will be covered in a more photo journalistic and documentary style; I will primarily photograph events as they unfold. To create diversity throughout the day, we will plan several segments dedicated solely to creative photography. Let’s work together throughout the timeline planning process to ensure we have scheduled “alone” time for us to step aside, find a beautiful setting and landscape, and work together to execute creative images that will amaze you.
