I love being able to capture moments in time. Pictures are able to encapsulate more than the image itself, but the emotion and feelings you had when you took that photo. Being able to remember who you were with and what you did that day through an image is a powerful thing.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done a ton of weddings in the past. For each couple I try to get to know them before shooting. I believe that if the couple is comfortable with you before the shoot, the photos come out more natural. You're able to give them better direction on how to pose and they'll have more trust with you.
