"...I felt completely comfortable and relaxed knowing you were capturing our special day..."
"...You are a marvelous artist to have captured on film the love and joy we share with one another..."
"...your photographs are even more wonderful than we had imagined...we would recommend you most highly to anyone..."
"...We consider you one of the greatest wedding gifts we could have received. You have given us photos we will treasure for a lifetime!!!..."
I have been taking pictures since my late teens, visually exploring life’s moments. Having the opportunity to shoot for many clients with various needs gave me a chance to discover that “unique angle”... with the desire to not just deliver a photo, but to tell the story with that image. It seems like I have always had a camera in my hands and I very much enjoy this work.
I view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such I often use the tools of modern photography different film stocks, filters, digital enhancement to try to capture in an image the emotions I felt at the moment I tripped the camera's shutter.
