I photograph your wedding the way I would want mine to be captured - relaxed, efficient, and artistic. I carry minimal equipment because I strongly feel that being caught up in what gear to use when blocks the flow of the day and the ability
to capture what’s happening. I shoot with one Canon 5d mark iii body and swap between three prime lenses. Only during the ceremony do I bring out my longer lens so I can remain discreet.
My ability to listen to what you want really separates me from everyone else. I understand how important it is to be listened to and the big disappointment that occurs when you haven’t been heard. Your wedding day is exactly that, yours. My priority is capturing what is important to you and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I take direction from you as a couple just as much as you take direction from me. If your dynamic feels silly and goofy, I will make pictures that let you be like that. If the dynamic is more reserved, or you feel you need more direction, I am more than happy to put you in natural poses and then let you have your own moment.
My style of photography strikes a balance of fine art and photojournalism. I believe that the candid moments are just as important as the traditional ones. Taking influence from the natural world, I strive to create imagery that celebrates you and the elegance, beauty, and magical moments that make your day.
I am proud to say that I work with all different types of couples. I have worked successfully with strictly religious couples as well as others who opted for small outdoor ceremonies. I have photographed 200-person receptions in lavish ballrooms, as well as restaurant receptions where everyone mingles and there are no formalities. Regardless of what type of wedding my couples have, they are drawn to my emphasis on candid moments and natural portraits.
I love traveling for weddings. Any time spent in the car/train/plane leading up to a wedding, I really see as an opportunity to think about your wedding and focus myself on my craft. Please note that additional travel charges apply beyond 50 miles.
Accessibility and craft once limited who could photograph and who could not, but that is obviously no longer the case. If Uncle Bob wants to photograph your wedding then that is wonderful, and he will capture it in a very different and unique way than I will. Everybody wants a different level of photography and no one way is correct. But photography does come in different levels. When you hire a professional photographer, that is their job. They have invested their time, money, and themselves into making sure they are the best. You spend so much time planning your wedding that you deserve someone who understands that and will honor your effort with beautiful and technically excellent imagery.
Yes! I am happy to call Denver my home but I love going back to New England. I also love traveling, and would happily photograph your wedding anywhere in the world.
I want to have a minimal presence during your day, which is why some packages include a second shooter and some do not. Once I understand more details about your wedding, we can decide together whether a second shooter will be a beneficial addition to your day.
