I like making people feel great and beautiful. Wedding photography is very creative. If you need to plan and your are confused about the itinerary of your wedding, I am there to help.
The wedding details is one of the first things I shoot when I enter the bridal suite. I gather the rings, garter, jewelry and anything that is important to the couple and the magic begins. I get to create artistic detail shots, using reflecting surfaces, flowers and anything related to the wedding. With the light from a window I shoot away with my 100mm macro lens. I also like to use this lens to capture close-up shots of the bride getting her make-up done.
When the couple gets dressed, I place them by the window and use natural light. I also use flash when needed, but regulate it as fill flash, to keep the ambience.
The ceremony I approach photojournalistic. I follow the couple around without intruding, leaving enough space using my 24-70mm and 70-200mm.
I tell the couple in advance to make a family-shot-list, so we won’t forget anybody. The couple then gets to take the portraits.
Playing with light and finding the best location, even in mid-day is exciting. l look for back-light and shade to make the couple look the glamorous and beautiful. I encourage the couple to go out for a sunset shot, if time permits. I love using my 70-200mm for nice close-ups, but also have a variety of other lenses to choose from. My 35mm makes nice environmental shots.
For the receptions I have a great set-up of several flashes to give texture to my party-photos. With slow shutter speed and flash I can create motion around the couple.
As a result you will have a great memories of your special day when you get my email that your photos are ready and your album is in the mail.
