When I searched for a wedding photographer for my own wedding, I limited my search to photojournalists because I didn’t like the canned photos I saw on typical wedding photography websites. Now I shoot weddings and events with the mindset that truth is more beautiful and timeless than fiction. I’ve been a photojournalist since graduating from the School of Visual Arts with an MFA in 2005 , and my work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine and The Christian Science Monitor, among others. I approach weddings and events with a photojournalist’s eye and believe that you are more beautiful being yourself, in the moment, than posing in order to manufacture a moment. I’m not into inspirational quotes, props or forced memories, just love as it really is.
Do you Photoshop your work?
Yes. I understand that you want to look your best on your wedding day and I want that too.
Will you do posed portraits?
Yes. But I won’t do stiff portraits or fake smiles and I’m good at getting past those things.
