I do not do 'documentary style' photography of weddings; I do documentary photography of weddings. I approach each wedding as A Day In Our Life, as a fly-on-the-wall with a photographer’s eye and a documentarian’s head. I will capture all the special moments, all the details, all the nuances that make your wedding day, or days, special, including those moments and events you may not even be aware of when they occur. I will take some quick, simple, group shots, but I otherwise will not direct you or the flow of your day in any way – the highest compliment you can ever pay me is to say after your wedding, 'I don’t know how you got these photos – we weren’t even aware you were there.'
But why take it from me? Here's the unsolicited note I received from the mother and father of the bride at my latest wedding:
'What a pleasure it was to have you at our wedding. You did such a fantastic job capturing every moment just PERFECTLY!! Everyone has said you did the best job ever seen. You were everywhere, but never 'in the way' of anything. You were like family to us and we loved having you as a guest. Your personality is so kind and patient - especially with nervous parents and the bride!
'You captured our special time. We are so thankful. It was a pleasure to have you. Let us know if you need any high recommendations!'
I offer a wide range of services and packages, and if you are having a large wedding, and it is appropriate, I can offer to engage a second photographer whose shooting style and behavior will compliment mine.
Please contact me to discuss your wedding needs.
