WHERE I’M COMING FROM
Some people thought me mad switching from the science of chemical engineering to the art of wedding photography. But after travelling across Asia and capturing a host of unique characters on camera, I decided if I was going to spend the rest of my life engineering anything, I would like it to be people’s stories. Seems I made the right decision, because my unique approach to how I tell those stories continues to make both my clients and I very happy.
Like any great book, a wedding album should hook the reader. So I try to introduce a little bit of spark and spontaneity, mixing unobtrusive photojournalism with relaxed portraiture. You both will have your own story to tell. My goal is simple: to make everyone who sees your pictures want to hear it.
I don’t possess any special powers, but I do have the ability to be invisible and float about in the background. It’s your day, so you don’t want to be thinking about me. My job is to think about you. I achieve that with a little bit of careful planning on my part and a small amount of trust on yours. I also enlist the help of my second shooter (and wife as it happens), Adele, who captures even more of those small, never-to-be-seen-again moments.
If you’d like to find out more about how we can help create a lifetime of memories for you then drop us a line and we’ll grab a cuppa, I know a great little place.
