I love capturing special moments. My most memorable wedding moment would have to be when I had the opportunity to capture a photo of a couple with their uncle. They were in a rush to get to their reception, but I had a strong feeling that we needed this shot. A month later after the wedding, the couple reached out to me crying and expressing their gratitude for advising they take that photograph with their uncle because he had passed the following day and that was the last image they with him. As photographers we don’t know how great of an impact we have on individuals; that’s why I give 100 percent in wedding photography and life overall.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many family shoots. I love working with families and my favorite has been shoots for my niece. She has a ton of energy and doesn't always cooperate, which give me a perfect opportunity to be creative and think of ways to work on the fly and think quickly on my feet.
