As I'm sure you know, the wedding photographer you choose greatly influences how your day is documented and portrayed. Each photographer creates their own version of your wedding as seen through their unique filter. Some photographers have a story in mind before they even arrive. Brides and grooms who end up choosing me do so because they want something REAL, not another formulaic bridal magazine story. They desire artistic, documentary style imagery that captures and conveys the essence of themselves, their families and friends. My newlyweds often comment that they didn't even notice me during their ceremony and are thus a little perplexed as to how I captured some of their favourite images. This is the way I intend it to be, discrete, because it's not my day, it's yours. However, when it comes time for receptions, groups shots and after-parties I'm not afraid to get right into the mix. Interacting with guests is really the only way to capture things from their perspective. If you think our workings styles are fitted for each other, I would love to tell the story of your wedding day.

FAQs

How much editing do you do on the photos? I believe taking the photo is only half of the job. The other half is the editing process. I strive to create a unique, natural look. This means I review the exposure, contrast, saturation, clarity, cropping etc on every picture to ensure it fits my vision. I don't do heavy cosmetic retouching. My rule of thumb is: if it distracts me from what is important about the image, I make it less distracting. So, if I see a pimple that popped up or bit of chapped lip, I'll fix it. I'm not the the kind of photographer who smooths out every pore, thins bodies, and elements every stray hair. To me this can lead to fake looking images. I can do these
