That is keep it simple. I put a lot of information on my wedding site about styles and process, but the reality is my wedding photography process is not complex by any means. I have had the privilege to photograph other photographers weddings, photographers children’s weddings, and have many brides who are aspiring photographers. I have learned that some people want a lot of information and want to read about about styles of wedding photography and my take. Others want to keep it simple. I am humbled by the fact that other people see my work and call it inspiring, especially from other professionals.
I find some people will read every word, and then there are people who will just look at the pictures (thats’ me). For this reason I have incorporated a lot of pictures on my website which is contrary only showing your best work. This is to share the diversity in styles that I create in wedding photos. In the end, I have a lot of people who just hire me and say “just do what you do as we trust you,” and others who love to talk ideas and styles.
In short, I keep the process relaxed, simple and fun.
If you made it this far thank you for taking the time on my web site. I hope you’re enjoying my work. I am grateful to be a full-time creative professional working in multiple fields and for a pretty diverse group of clients. What drives me? Pretty simple. It is creating.
Whether photography or video, I could never work in a cookie cutter process. It’s about enjoying every opportunity and every person I get to work with. It’s about investing my time, experience, and talent into you and your families who expect my best in every moment.
I am an image-maker. My hands are on every image from start to finish. I shoot certain scenes very differently in camera because I know what I want to do in the creative post production. For me, handing my pictures over to someone else for post production does not feel right. They did not see or feel what I was doing in camera so I can not expect them to have the same attachment, responsibility, intrinsic reward that I have when creating something that I started. For me, it is finishing the creative process of what I started in camera.
Taking pictures with a camera is only half of the process to create art. Even though most my images only need a little color correction and sharpening, there is still an interpretation in the simple post production (what we used to call developing). My creative works and “Signature Photographs” are a completely different process that is very organic, and very different from one to the next. I can spend hours on one photo that captivates my attention. It is not uncommon for me spend 12-14 hours a day in the creative post process. It is not work..it is a passion that brings an intrinsic reward. So there it is, one short answer of why I think I am different. You will have to explore my website to get the answers to this question.
The one thing you will find is there is not any one style of photography on my website because I am not any one style photographer. For me, the styles & moods change especially with light. So my style will change and that is how I create. It is taking any given situation and creating something special, rememberable, one of a kind.
I always tell people you need to trust your photographer, not only with your image, but with the details. There is more than operating a camera to being a complete professional. I have a lot of fun at what I do and make a lot of friends along the way. My reputation is everything and I go above and beyond to make sure your experience and pictures are world class.
