I’ve been taking photographs ever since I can remember and I’ve been lucky enough to do this for a living for ten years now. In addition to hundreds of luxury weddings, I’ve had a wide variety of assignments over the years, from celebrity portraits , fashion shoots, major national sporting events to stadium concerts. You’ll often hear there’s a distinction between wedding photographers and commercial photographers (click here to see my commercial work). People start their careers in weddings and then move on but I have been able to float in between. I have use my gained knowledge in one field and applied it towards the others. The reason I have done this is that there’s something unique about photographing weddings, it’s an opportunity to capture one of the most important days of someone’s life. There is no reshoot on a wedding day, either you have the eye for the moment and the skill to capture it or you don’t.
Enjoy your wedding day
Because of my experience on a wedding day, I work with my clients to help them feel comfortable in front of a camera so that the photographs will reflect those moments that will stand out years from now. I let my clients breath and capture the true moments of their wedding as they unfold with out my influence. Yes I will give little pointers along the way, ” you might want to put your dress on this is room the light is amazing”, or ”lets go off the beaten path and shoot some portraits in a not portrait designated spot ” things like that.
Getting comfortable in front of the camera
I do shoot my fair share of portraits on a wedding day but I understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of a camera in that situation. I’m very sensitive to a clients needs on a wedding day shoot. I work as quickly as possible and walk my clients though simple natural movements that don’t require a lot of set up time or awkwardness. I want my portraits to look as natural and genuine as possible, so tend I give my clients space and use longer lens to capture portraits.
