In a decade of documenting weddings, you might think I have seen it all. In terms of weather, locations, light (or no light), timelines, and all sorts of impromptus, well, I probably have. I have documented weddings where I was the only guest besides the witnesses and the officiant, to extravagant multi day 300+ guests affairs, and possibly every variation in between.
What keeps me wanting to photograph more weddings is the realization that every wedding carries a different story longing to be told. No two weddings have ever felt the same to me, and when I walk into yours, all the images I have made at other weddings are forgotten. I see it a bit like jazz, or French cuisine--the ingredients are simple and pretty much always the same, but the outcomes are always unique, never to be reproduced to the identical.
My mission is to flesh out that unique story, to look past the obvious to find the deeper meaning. It's not only about how pretty everything looked like that day, but more so, how it felt to be there.
When I enter your special day, my goal is to produce no less than my work best work yet. I take on only a few wedding commissions per season because I want to be able to maintain a maximum level of emotional commitment.
"Every wedding is the setting for a unique story longing to be told."
MY WEDDING REPORTAGE IS ABOUT LOOKING PAST THE OBVIOUS
A couple madly in love, a few friends and close family in a public park on a Summer night in New York. A wedding stripped to its essence.
