Why do you want to work with APW Couples?

APW readers want to make a ceremony that is uniquely their own. Each one is unique.
APW readers are from the city and the country. Working in New England often means being fluent in both settings.

Describe your artistic approach to weddings?

I am documentary photographer, photography editor, writer and digital media professional. I love creating those images that brim over with emotion. You know, those images that you can feel even if you weren’t there. Those are the photographs that become heirlooms passed down and cherished. Images that remind you of the textures, the feelings and most importantly, the memories.

My goal is show the beauty, the moments and the feelings that define your day so you can remember it for the rest of your lives. The emphasis is on documenting the day more than setting up portraits. My photographs reflect the spontaneous fun and joy of your day. Please get in touch to see if this approach works for you.

What are your non-work-related hobbies?

When I am not taking pictures I can often be found in the mountains (sometimes still taking pictures) climbing, hiking, skiing, depending on the season (or not). I cook a lot, but baking kind of scares me.

What’s your favorite book?

I have been re-reading Raymond Chandler, looking for one-liners along the way: “It must have been Friday because the fish smell from the coffee-shop next door was strong enough to build a garage on.”

What’s your favorite movie?

At one point my two favorite movies were “The Blues Brothers” and “Witness for the Prosecution.” A musical comedy with some of the greats of soul music and an adaptation with Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton. I don’t watch as many movies as I used to, especially since there is so much great writing and production on TV in the last few years.

If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?

I love the harmony in the B-52s’ “Roam.” “Love Shack” is on the regular wedding playlist, but “Roam” almost never is, but it’s so fantastic. “Around the world the trip begins with a kiss.” There’s so much in that line.
