My Style

BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER ALLOWS ME TO BE A PART OF AN INCREDIBLE MEMORY. RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES I GET TO WITNESS THE ART OF LOVE. LOVE IS NO LONGER JUST A FEELING, IT BECOMES SOMETHING TANGIBLE. TWO FAMILIES BECOME ONE. A COUNTLESS AMOUNT OF SMILES AND TEARS OF JOY, AS LOVE RADIATES THROUGH THE AIR.  WEDDINGS MARK THE BEGINING OF TWO PEOPLE STARTING A LIFE TOGETHER. PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING IS AN ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE, BECAUSE YOU GET TO PLAY A SMALL PART IN SOMETHING THAT IS SO IMMENSELY LIFE CHANGING, AND BEAUTIFUL.

Wedding photojournalism is key. The day needs to be documented properly so that years down the road we can look back and relive the moments through photographs. When it comes to documenting a special day, I have to be precise, paying close attention to my surroundings and interactions.  I try my best to properly document your day with purposeful photos so that when you look back it's as though you're celebrating all over again.  Shooting weddings is a specialty of mine however my roots run deep with landscape, seascape and just about anything that this world provides with its beauty. Lets just saying I've been chasing sunsets since the polaroid days. But what brings out the beauty of an environment better then anything else? Life. Life and people who are in love. I can remember my first time shooting romance under the stars and it truly gives me goosebumps to see the interaction between the beauty of nature and the beauty of love. I have always been greatly inspired by fine-art photography.  So I can say with confidence that creating a piece of art that brings out emotion is always the overall goal.

I would like to say that my photography is rooted in these ways...
