No matter the situation I am always up beat and usually have a smile on my face. I am drawn to those unguarded and candid scenes. I don’t try to pose the couple or model in a situation where they are not comfortable or don't look authentic. For wedding it's about looking for those real moments as that is what will draw me in. With my images I attempt to pass on an artistic feel that reveals feelings of emotion onto the viewer. Capturing the day as it all unfolds and documenting the story in a creative way.
While working I am super easy going with clients on a wedding day, an engagement shoot or a portrait session. My goal is to have them be relaxed and just be themselves as in my experience this creates the most amazing photos all while having fun at them same time.
