Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
APW couples seem, well, practical. Genuine, grounded, and informed. My approach to photography and what I deliver is not the average, and I feel that APW couples have the kind of mindset and goals for their day that fit very well with my work.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
I am an observer and an image maker; a photojournalist and a documentarian, (not a director!). I love everything about photographing weddings: the excitement, the pace, and the overwhelming goodwill.
I’m laid back yet I pay an enormous amount of attention to detail. To me “detail shots” means something a bit different though – it’s the first time your dad sees you all dressed up, your great aunt’s reaction to the best man’s speech, the looks between you and your partner–these are the details you’ll never want to forget.
For most of your day I work in a relaxed way, ready to capture events as they unfold naturally. Of course, there needs to be a little direction from me for the portraits and formal parts of the day, but I have fun with it, and hope you do too. It’s my passion to make beautiful and powerful images that document your day in an artistic way and let you see the love and joy that surrounds you.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
When I’m not behind a lens or in front of a computer screen, you might find me cycling, paddling, at CrossFit, playing bocce at the park, or hanging out with my little sister.
What’s your favorite book?
Any & all Sherlock Holmes.
What’s your favorite movie?
A single favorite is impossible. I love anything Wes Anderson or Stanley Kubrick. Other favourites are Labyrinth, The Score, Lost in Translation, Groundhog Day, LA Story and Rio Bravo.
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
If I had to pick only one, I’d say something by David Bowie or the Stones or Lady Gaga or Daft Punk. If I *had* to pick. Really though, this question led to a 30 minute dance party at my desk so I can’t decide.
Explain your travel policy:
I often offer great deals on destination weddings depending on time of year and availability – inquire for more info.
