Twenty Years’ experience in Formal, Candid, Photojournalistic Wedding Photography/Videography, and special occasions. My style is very much relaxed and natural, I don’t tell couples what to do or boss them about its just not who I am. I give advice or gentle suggestions, not orders. I like things to be as relaxed as possible and I blend into the background that way I can capture real natural moments as they happen and ensure you have photographs you will cherish forever. I happen to think that photography is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding. I feel that there is a story in every wedding and that is my passion – I love to tell your story.
What I love about photography...is the power of observation and storytelling that goes into one still image. That saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words", I love that an idea, an emotion, or a story, can be told without having said a single word. It's beautiful. And what I love even more, is when I capture that in good lighting!
My hobbies are editing, shooting, editing & shooting....shooting and editing...Haha, no besides studying what I think are great photos, I love to zone out and play the harmonica in my free time.
My goal is to make each of my photographs relate the story of love between two people and their families.I want to preserve those beautiful moments for the generations to follow and to express the happiness and joy experienced that day.
I enjoy Auto racing, going to car shows, and photographing sporting events.
Photography is the way that I perceive the world through the lens of a camera. It allows me to see the people, their culture and their emotions. My favorite type of photography are portraits. Although weddings allow me to capture a special moment in people's life such as their tears of joy, smiles and laughs of the couple, and the people who they are sharing their day with.
When I'm not busy in the world of photography and weddings, I like to spend time traveling with friends and family between the tri-states and taking advantage of the diversity as I try different type of foods from different countries.
I love cinematography simply because I can make people smile, whether it is bringing a vision of mine to life or helping bring others' ideas into a motion picture better than they could have imagined.
When I am not shooting, I enjoy listening to music and anything to do with cars!
1) Cinematography - I value family, traditions, people, celebrations. Creating a film for today's remembrance and tomorrow's history of who these amazing people were on their wedding day is why I do what I do.
2) Hobbies - Same as work! Video and audio production as well as student of all types of music pertaining to the guitar.
I provide a special approach that presents you with a very unique and creative wedding film that's elegant, classic and timeless. I focus on a very candid and unobtrusive shooting style, and it is my job as a film artist to show emotion, excitement, and joy. I have specialized in Weddings for over 25 years and have grown to become one of the highest respected Wedding Filmmakers in the industry. I have also directed my first feature independent film "Diamonds to Dust" in 2014. I have also worked as Director of Photography, Film Editor, Sound, Executive Producer, and Producer for "Trakked" and "Fake News".
