Initially drawn to the fashion industry, I began working commercially as a photographer in 1993. Although fashion shoots were thrilling and creatively challenging, the first wedding I photographed changed my path. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed capturing real moments and how meaningful the images were to my clients. Eventually, my focus shifted entirely to wedding photography, dotted by the occasional request for a portrait, corporate job or event.
How I Work
I like to meet with a couple beforehand and share all our ideas – it’s all very personal. We discuss everything – the location, times, key people and moments not to miss. I also provide some insight and expertise. For example, I don’t need to see your location in advance because it’s better to react with the light in the moment on the actual day. If it’s rainy or cloudy, hiring a professional photographer will make the difference between getting poor quality photos and stunning ones. An iPhone can’t handle bad weather, no matter how many lenses it has.
At the wedding, I’ll follow you around like an invisible shadow, capturing both planned and spontaneous moments. For the posed portraits of the bridal party and families, I only need about 20-30 minutes. Unlike some photographers who take 1-2 hours, I won’t disrupt the momentum of the day, and we can do it whenever the timing feels right.
A full day consists of 6 hours of shooting, or so, give or take depending on the couple. I shoot everything in raw photo format, then retouch and make a first selection. I send all the photos to you, whether you make an album with me or or not. You can always decide that later.
Shooting a portrait is a process. We decide on a location, indoors or outside, and then just let it unfold. It usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and it’s good to bring a few wardrobe changes.
