I love weddings.
I love the anticipation of the day, the mindful preparation, and the growing level of excitement leading up to the main event.
It is both beautiful and magical to watch people from all walks of life come together to celebrate a couple's happiness and their commitment to one another.
As a wedding photographer, my goal is to capture the moments as they happen to try and preserve the feelings of the day for years to come. More often that not, it's "the moments between the moments" that prove to be the most memorable.
One of my favorite past times is to go through the shoeboxes of old photographs my mom has accumulated over the last 50+ years. If I have a friend or family member with me to share in the experience it makes it that much more special.
There is something about old photographs, particularly the ones from the 60s, 70s, and 80s that just feels so authentic to me. One look at an old Polaroid and you instantly tap into the emotion of the setting. Nothing staged. Nothing planned. Just captured and preserved.
When I shoot my goal is to capture the emotion as it happens and in turn, try to preserve the ambiance of the setting as much as possible.
I like to take a natural approach to photography - I believe life as it happens is so much more interesting than anything you could stage or contrive.
I think there is a little bit of voyeur in all of us (maybe that's not the right word, but you get my point...). If we weren't fortunate enough to attend a friend or loved one's wedding or special event, we'd still like to take a peek inside and see what the guests saw through their eyes.
At the end of the day, that's my goal.
