My Photography Style

My photography style would be summed up as a combination of Traditional Wedding Photography and Photo-journalistic Wedding Photography.

Traditional Wedding Photography is classic and posed, such as group shots of the couple with the entourage and their families, shots of the cake cutting and wine toasting, and the first kiss of the couple as husband and wife. Though photographers have been practicing this style for decades, both shooters and clients find that it’s the best way to achieve 'key shots' of the day and timeless photos of the couple’s friends and family together. This style typically requires my second shooter and myself to get involved in guiding and directing and posing the wedding party for photos. But to take more priceless photos, it helps to also capture real and unguarded moments, thus Photo-journalistic Wedding Photography.

This style resembles reportage and documentary shooting, in which the shooter takes on a more informal approach in telling the story of the day. A lot of creativity is required for this wedding photography style, not to mention some serious skill in quickly aiming, adjusting camera settings, framing, and shooting as moments unfold . This style requires us to blend in, sometimes with a telephoto lenses to easily capture candid moments from afar. The results are real and natural images that will evoke a flood of emotions.

As we are there to capture your wedding the way you envision I'll ask you prior to the wedding to let me know which of these styles best meet your needs, typically most couples like a combination of both. I will also send you a shot list so you can fill out and send back to me so we won't miss a photo you want. Do know with over 265 weddings to date your hiring a seasoned professional team. I work with my Better Half of 20 years.
