I love evoking an emotion through art. Indeed a picture is worth a thousand words - but it is also worth a thousand laughs, a thousand tears, and every emotion in between. What I do allows me to capture special moments in peoples lives - provide a brief glimpse joy or even an account of events that is genuine, unique, and artistic. There is an immense sense of pride seeing my clients faces when viewing their album for the first time - seeing their eyes light up as they remember the moment. An additional happiness knowing my photos helped generate enough interest to close the deal for a real estate client.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done very few weddings in the past and, for me, it is the most difficult as well. Recently, I've photographed a wedding for a friend I haven't seen in ages. She was nervous for obvious reasons and really couldn't provide me the minute details I needed to feel confident (over prepare and over gear remember?). All she told me was "please capture the moments". "Capture the moments" was my mantra for the entire wedding. It was a HUGE pay off. I created a special engraved wedding album with roughly 25 of the "choice" moments during the wedding and my client...my friend was completely speechless and over the moon!
