On your wedding day, I have the privilege of being able to tell your story through a series of natural, thoughtful and emotional photographs. These photographs will show a great deal about the spirit of your personalities, your love for each other, and the love among your family and friends. I will create a legacy of that day so that your children and grandchildren will be able to appreciate what you are all about. What an honour.
My goal is to send a shiver down your spine when you look at your photographs. I want you to be thrilled with the way I captured your interactions and emotions. I achieve this by being in the right place at the right time, and by pressing the shutter at the pinnacle of the moment. I work to see the world from your perspective and then use my own style combined with a respect for light, composition and form to preserve that day forever.
My approach to portraiture is the same. I believe photography should accurately reflect who you and your children are, capturing you in your best light. I find the rhythm of your family. I study the qualities of your children that make them so precious. This helps to make the moments I photograph more meaningful and timeless.
As a photographer, I am a keeper of the spirit of people. Could this be the greatest job on earth, second only to the job of mother? Perhaps.
