There are so many photographers you may choose from. We come from many difference walks of life from Urban hipster to a quiet country shooter. So many options, so many different prices.
I have learned as an experienced shooter that to capture the intimate moments we desperately want to document, a couple needs to feel safe in our presence.
At our first shoot, usually an engagement session, I take time to get to know my "subjects"
I know how difficult it can be to be in front of a lens, waiting for that awful click when you just. know you made a bad face. I know how self conscious it feels to stand still for what seems like a eternity. I know how bad we can feel when we see a less then flattering images of ourselves.
The one constant comment I hear always is" That was so much fun" and "I love these, how did you make us laugh so hard?" "I actually love these and I hate all pictures of myself"
I think it is the ability to listen and really be present with you. I want to hear your story, and be more then some hired hand, but a photographer that actually blends into the wedding without standing out or being in the way. After initial prep shots, everyone stops posing and let's me be as a fly on the wall-there but unnoticed, unless I am helping dry a bouquet or smooth a dress.
Here a few moments that I was lucky enough to be able to witness, without anyone feeling as though they had to hide the emotions from me or my camera.
Two years ago around Christmas, Joh contacted me to photograph his surprise proposal to Natalie. I was very excited and waited at a Christmas tree farm, Ninja Photographer, behind a fat xmas tree for him to say the magic words. As I watched him walking along, acting as though he was choosing a tree, he suddenly disappeared behind one, far far away from me. a moment later I heard Natalie's voice echoing across the valley..."OH MY GOD"
I raced down, waited a minute or two to be invited into this intimate moment and captured the most amazing moment between two people so very much in love.Natalie could not stop crying. so sweet and touching.I was carried away with emotion,trying to remain a objective photographer
We revisited the scene of the crime a year later for a casual engagement shoot, while the two really did shop for a tree.
I was beyond pleased when Natalie asked if I would photograph the wedding. Of course I said YES
here are a few of the many many images from the amazing, vibrant, joyous day
