On February 22nd, 2015 I joined the club; the marriage club that is. While the wedding itself was the best party of my life, it was merely a one-day celebration of something much bigger - marriage. Experiencing the wedding day in the shoes of the groom, I got a new perspective on my profession as a wedding photographer.
Before the wedding everybody kept asking me “So who is shooting your wedding?!”. Since my couple selfies became such a signature thing I’d always joke around and say that I will be shooting it. I did my research and actively looked for a photographer (every day) for almost two months until I found one. I chose him because I knew I wouldn’t have to worry anything wedding photography related. He had the balance I was looking for in a photographer. His portraits are stunning, his post-production is unique, consistent and spot on, and most importantly he just knows how to capture moments. Real moments. In addition, he brought the calmest, positive energy to the wedding, which helped us relax and enjoy every single second of the day. He was just a delight to be around throughout the wedding day.
Only after being on the other side I was able to really understand the value of hiring a personable wedding photographer. Sure you can go to school and learn everything you need to know about photography. However, it is a lot harder to learn how to be friendly, caring and responsible. I truly believe that my some of my biggest strengths lie in the care and attention I give the couples that I work with. While continuously trying to be as creative as I can, these characteristics have always been the foundation of my business.
