The Wedding Details
Some frequently asked questions…
What do you enjoy most about your work?
What is your philosophy?
Do you shoot and posed photos or portraiture?
What is reportage style photography?
Popularly referred to as photojournalism, reportage photography tells the story of a wedding day through unposed photographs.
What is your approach?
Casual, non-commanding, and very people friendly! I prefer to blend into the scenes throughout the day, documenting personalities and unfolding moments discreetly.
Describe your style.
Very pure, very organic. Fresh but with a touch of vintage sensibility. Beautiful and aesthetically appealing while remaining authentic to my subjects. I do not rely on heavy post production (digital tweaks and maipulation) to alter or enhance the essence of my photographs. My goal is to bestow upon clients a visual keepsake of their day that is honest, natural, and moving.
What are clients’ most frequent feedback about their experiences with you?
Clients and their guests regularly mention that I was everywhere, but without being in the way or obtrusive. Brides and grooms constantly comment that I capture their friends’ and family members’ true personas in photographs. Parents of brides and grooms frequently thank me for my happy disposition not just at the beginning of wedding planning, but throughout the entire process.
Do you shoot film or digital?
I offer both. After exclusively shooting film for ten years, I recently opted to begin offering digital coverage as well. I purposely waited until I felt that digital quality in ALL aspects, from camera reliability to finished printing, could be completely on par with film. I use only Canon gear for both digital and film commissions. Post production for both are handled entirely by the professional lab that I have patronized for several years, ensuring consistent and superior quality, as well as careful handling of materials.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! More than 60 – 70% of my wedding commissions are regional, usually at one of WV’s gorgeous state parks or resorts. Weddings have also taken me to the Caribbean, Minneapolis, and upstate New York. Please contact me and I will explain all things travel related to you!
