Capturing moments in time...
For the last six years I’ve been photographing weddings around western and central New York as well as in the Finger Lakes region and I can honestly say that six years on I’m just as full of excitement and enthusiasm for each wedding I photograph as I was for my very first one. I still get such an immense feeling of pleasure from spending a wedding day with a wonderful couple, capturing all those genuine emotive moments that unfold throughout the day.
When it comes to wedding photography I’m a collaborator and a storyteller.
Before the wedding I’ll take time to get to know you and to understand what you really want from your wedding photography. From our first meeting, through to the wedding day and beyond, I’ll be with you every step of way. On your wedding day I’ll take a mostly unobtrusive approach to capture your day authentically, there will be moments where I’ll need to get up close and personal but wherever possible I’ll observe from a distance. That’s not to say I won’t give a little gentle guidance where it’s needed. For instance, during the wedding preparations I might direct people into those parts of the room with great light but I won’t stage moments to create a story, I prefer to capture the genuine narrative of the day.
At some point during the celebrations I like to take you away for a short time and create some romantic portraits, your first portraits as a married couple. I’ll give you a little direction to help keep you looking natural and relaxed but I won’t overly pose you, unless that's something that appeals to you. There’s no need to worry if you don’t feel comfortable in front of a camera, that’s quite normal and I’m used to putting people at ease.
I take the same approach to your family and group photos, my intention is to take your guests away from your celebrations for as short as time as possible. We’ll photograph the essential groups and those people that matter the most and then everyone can carrying on enjoying themselves and I’ll be once more be in the background, quietly telling your story through the little moments.
Some couples prefer a more extensive or stylized portrait session for themselves or the wedding party. I’m always happy to shoot a longer or more posed session but you will need to set aside some extra time during your celebrations to make this happen.
