I believe the hallmark of a good photographer is their ability to connect. A good photographer should connect with their subject, and the resulting photo should connect people to a moment. That’s what memories are, after all — a link to a moment, framed by what we saw there. These connections are what make a good photo a great one. These connections are what I live for. I think you’ll find my enthusiasm is evident in the quality of the photos I take. I also believe the best photos – the moments you hire me to capture – are created when they’re sincere.
I don’t interfere, arrange your guests, or make you change your plans. I wait, and I take every effort to make sure the only thing you hear from me is my camera’s shutter release. The guests at your wedding are people you know and love. That’s all there is to it; that’s my craft, my passion, and my reason for doing what I do. I don’t follow trends or mimic styles. My framing, lenses, perspective, composition, and editing – these are my artistic valves. These are what I fine tune to tell your story, honestly, effectively, and unobtrusively.
Sushi, croissants, monty python, sound of a guitar, smelly cheeses, running, asian cuisine, minimalism, eggs benedict, traveling, smoothies, home made french fries, smell of coconut sunscreen, sea salt on my skin, long summer evenings, bonefire, excitement, sound of crickets in the summertime, looking for shapes and faces in the clouds, live music, cooking, wine, nordic design, smell of a freshly cut grass, Super Mario, summertime, astronauts and beautiful fonts.
Raisins, the sound of a ticking clock at night, 3D movies, too large restaurant menus, annoying mosquitoes, heavy traffic, rainy days, software updates, taking things for granted, cockroaches (yuck!), umbrellas (they’re mostly useless) boredom (terrified of it!) and airplane toilets.
