To encapsulate my photographic approach, it melds photojournalism's candid essence with the grace of elegant portraiture. This fusion ensures you cherish authentic, natural moments alongside beautifully crafted portraits. Our editing process meticulously refines every high-end digital capture, aiming to mirror the classic allure of film. We consciously avoid transient, trendy filters, ensuring your images remain timeless and never appear outdated.
Your wedding day stands as one of the most significant moments in your life, a timeless celebration of your shared love and the start of your journey together. My aspiration is for you to be utterly enchanted by your photographs. We seek out and capture the inherent beauty in every aspect of your wedding, from the anticipatory moments of getting ready to the vibrant energy of your reception. My team and I meticulously record each detail, adopting a candid and photojournalistic style to elicit genuine, uncontrived moments. Combined with our flair for elegant portraiture, we ensure a blend of spontaneous, light-hearted moments and exquisitely staged portraits, creating a tapestry of memories that resonate with grace and emotion.
A: I DO. I DESCRIBE MY STYLE IN ONE SENTENCE: “I AM A PHOTOJOURNALIST WHO MASTERFULLY COMBINES CANDID IMAGES TO CREATE ELEGANT PORTRAITS.” I BELIEVE THAT REAL MOMENTS ARE THE BEST, AND THE MORE ORGANIC YOUR PHOTOS ARE, THE BETTER.
A: MY FIRST YEAR IN PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL I ASPIRED TO BE THE MODERN-DAY ANSEL ADAMS. DURING MY SECOND YEAR, HOWEVER, I FELL IN LOVE WITH A LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER’S WORK. IT WAS SO EDGY AND CANDID. HIS NAME IS BIL ZELMAN AND AT THE TIME HE WAS STILL SHOOTING VERY HIGH END WEDDINGS (NOW HE ONLY SHOOTS COMMERCIAL WORK). FOR MONTHS I BEGGED HIM FOR AN INTERNSHIP, AND AFTER ABOUT SIX MONTHS OF RELENTLESSLY SHOWING UP AT HIS STUDIO, HE FINALLY TOOK ME ON. I WORKED MY BUTT OFF FOR HIM, AND IN THE PROCESS LEARNED HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS FROM ONE OF THE BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS OF OUR TIME. THE REST IS HISTORY, AND BIL AND I ARE GREAT FRIENDS TO THIS DAY.
