“Over the course of my career I’ve had the pleasure of photographing some extremely inspiring couples who have helped lift my work to new heights and encouraged me to challenge my own perception of exactly “what” a wedding photograph should be. In short, it should reflect character and individuality – each story should have it’s own flavor.
I’m working with such powerhouses, such free-spirits and of course the beloved “wild ones” … when it comes to your wedding day, it’s clear that a cookie cutter template WILL NOT and SHOULD NOT suffice!
It’s part of my manifesto to re-write the interpretation of what it means to be a bride and/or groom and to be wed. Yes, we are beautiful, but that is not where the story begins and ends: we are unique, we are powerful and we are forward thinking.
These images represent legacy and history itself. Timeless portraiture is a must – and incredibly important, but not at the expense of missing out on your own celebration and the authentic documentation that follows.
Wedding photographers … let’s make a point of being perceptive and allowing character and strength of spirit to shine through in our images. Let’s learn when to step in and when to step out and allow for the story to present itself to us. I’ll be talking more about our duties of representation in my masterclass series when it launches soon.
