Why do you want to work with APW Couples?

APW couples tend to be couples who are unique and are excited about planning a wedding that will encapsulate their personalities and individuality. I find all of the personalized details inspirational, and capturing these creative details in order to tell a couple’s love story is actually thrilling. A wedding is extraordinarily intimate, and when a couple wants to plan a wedding that is a celebration of their personal and unique relationship, I am honored to capture those moments and forever preserve them on film.

Describe your artistic approach to weddings?

I like to custom tailor my style dependent upon the couple. Often I get a shy couple who feels uncomfortable in front of the camera, so I have to let the day play out and get the shot black ops stealth style. Other times I have a couple who wants to get rock star photos on the dance floor and will pose for the camera all day long. Ultimately, depending on the personality of the couple, I have to behave and photograph accordingly to truly capture the essence of that couple. However, regardless of the couple, I always love making sure I get plenty of detail photos. Couples work long and hard to design details that will infuse their wedding with aspects of themselves, so I make sure to capture every last one in order to tell the complete story.

What are your non-work-related hobbies?

I love getting away when possible; particularly backpacking and camping in the amazing Northeast National parks. My fiancée is an actress, so I find myself going to plays and musicals more and more. It is off broadway now, but go see Peter and the Star Catcher.

What’s your favorite book?

Into Thin Air and Tuesdays with Morrie.

What’s your favorite movie?

Vanilla Sky and Igby Goes Down; however, the documentary 180 Degrees South is great! You can find these on Netflix right now!

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

I have been rocking the 80’s music, (Take me Home Tonight ), while editing and at times having my own dance party… I think it is ready for the public stage.
