BEHIND THE LENS
Maybe it’s my penchant for cheesy 80’s movies, but to me a single photograph can save the day. Though often only a piece of paper (or even a digital image), a picture is a time machine allowing its viewer to relive the human experience of a moment past. The power captured by the click of a shutter…that lucidity you experience when the onrush of senses and memories hit you; that is why I love photography.
I would classify my style of photography as “lifestyle” or “photojournalistic”. One of the things I enjoy the most about event photography like weddings is that I’m surrounded in those instances by unscripted human emotion. Undoubtedly some of the best images I’ve ever captured come when the subjects don’t even know I’m there. Honestly, the feeling of capturing a genuine look of love and adoration or an ear-to-ear grin is one that never gets old.
That said, I wholeheartedly adore portrait sessions as well. Getting a chance to spend an hour or two with a subject in a beautiful location and really connect with them is what I do best. I like to laugh and smile with my clients…trading stories, telling jokes…and ultimately I want my clients to be comfortable in front of the lens. I’ll do anything crazy and adventurous for a great shot. I do my very best to capture the inherent beauty in any moment in time.
In my professional experience I continually find the most success by focusing on a positive working relationship while exceeding expectations when delivering projects to my clients. To that end I pride myself in working tirelessly to ensure they’re comfortable with the overall process and are happy with the final product.
