I would just like to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. My photographic style can be described as photo-journalistic combined with traditional and (my favorite) editorial. I capture the story of the special day as it unfolds. I pay specific attention to the details because it shares the personality of the bride and groom with their guests.
MY FIRST CAMERA
My first camera was a Sedic. It was a hand-me-down, but I cherished it! It is a camera that uses 110 cartridge film. If you Google it (which I did) you’ll see that it is now a collector’s item worth $10-$30. (Good thing I kept it all of these years!)
As a kid, I brought my camera everywhere: family vacations; on class field trips; to the mall. I had a special camera case, but the case was too big to fit in my kid-purse. The photo that I remember best from that camera, is the one of my best friend in 2nd grade. She lived a block from my house and came over on the weekend. We were hanging out in the living room and decided it would be a good time for a photo. Back then it took a week to get photos developed. One week is like a month in kid-time - that is almost forever! How did we take pictures with no immediate feedback?
WHY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
While photography is something I have always been interested in, I am particularly passionate about wedding photography.
A wedding is the moment in two lives when two people affirm each other as family. It doesn’t matter if you have been together 10 years or 10 months. That is the moment, you are declaring to the world, that you are FAMILY. (Wow!)
As a wedding photographer, I get to document the extraordinary moment when two people promise themselves as family. (Double Wow!)
