Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
APW is a direct link to my dream clients. I am so inspired by weddings that are filled with unique and personal details from the bride and groom's life together.
I approach wedding photography as a documentarian with a deep love of family and a great respect for ritual. A wedding day represents a rare and courageous event where two people choose to stand in front of all those they hold most dear and declare their love for one another. A wedding day deserves to be documented beautifully, as a sacred testament to love and life; recorded with the same care and compassion that the two people have for one another.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
My images are a blend of formal photographic training, an intrinsic interest in storytelling through photography and a love for classical, painterly compositions. My images speak not only to the details of the event, but to the sentiment woven throughout the day. I compose minimally orchestrated pictures that articulate the occasion with unobtrusive simplicity, while capturing the gravity of the moments and the larger meanings they represent. I feel the best pictures are achieved through making a genuine connection with my subjects and by being fully engaged in the magnitude of the day.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I am also a certified yoga teacher and have recently embarked on a new journey into the wide world of ceramic arts.
