FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A COLLECTION OF COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
My style is simple but I believe that my images should speak volumes - about who you are as a person, about the relationship between a husband and wife, about the subtle nuances of everyday life. I strive to create images at each and every wedding that illuminates the relationships; both of each individual family and the new family being created that day. My goal is to provide you with a documentary-based illustration of your wedding day with minimal guiding or posing. It's not my intention to just "make pretty pictures" but to truly make images that capture the relationship between two people in love.
