How long have you been in the photography business?
I’ve been lucky enough to be working as a professional photographer for more than eight years now. I’ve always loved photography but it wasn’t until 2004 that I began to think of it as a possible profession. It took a while for me to really get started and initially my work was a combination of writing and photography. My images began to appear on blogs and in magazine columns.
That early work gradually made me realize that it was telling people’s stories through images that really fired my imagination. I had a talent for getting to the heart of what was being expressed – it was the ability to capture not just the facts of what was happening but the very spirit of it.
Naturally, my passion for telling stories through images led me to begin offering wedding photography as one of my services. I realized that I could tell the individual stories of couples on one of the most important days of their lives. I could practice the craft that I loved while presenting the happy couple with photographs that captured the true essence of their wedding and that they could cherish forevermore.
What motivates you to keep going every day?
That we produce great things for extraordinary people – and that can include everyone. Each person’s story is unique. Our approach is simple: “Have vision!” As a creative agency we can work with a huge range of individual’s and each person’s requirements are different from the next. It’s a case of being able to adapt to allow each individual customers’ vision to truly flourish.
How do you prepare to capture a wedding or engagement session?
I’ve realized I’m good at telling stories. Whether they’re long or short, mine or other people’s, there’s nothing I love more. The wonderful part is that I don’t need to do much other than see the story that is already there in the right way. You won’t see me creating moments, telling the groomsmen to “fight” with the groom, telling dad to hug his daughter before walking her down the aisle. They’ll do those kind of things naturally as part of their own particular story and those are the moments that I capture, but it’s all worth it when you see the final images bringing the individual tale to life before your eyes.
What sets you apart from other photographers?
You get what you pay for! It’s an old adage but it definitely applies so far as professional photography is concerned. Ask every potential photographer to show you his or her Wedding Look Book, website, Facebook page and more. Look carefully at the kind of pictures that are presented – wedding, fashion, special events –and at their style: classic, pictorialism, photo journalism, and see if the images ‘speak’ to you. They should be able to stir emotions up and let you ‘live’ the event through the images. If they do, then you know the photographer is worth the money. Your photographs will be treasured for life and then passed down to the next generation, so it’s worth spending what’s required in order to get the best.
What would you like couples to know about you?
My approach is simple; it’s your day, your story and I am there to tell it.
