My passion is to make photographs at every wedding that make the day unique. Simply put, I’m looking for “the moment.” That one split second, captured with the camera, that won’t ever be repeated. It might be the way the light is falling on a tear, a laugh, a touch of emotion, or that feeling within someone that resonates when looking at the photograph of the moment. I want to be surprised and give my clients that piece of the day that isn’t planned or something they didn’t notice.

It’s all part of a wedding weekend and so important to capture. To compliment those images, I have to go after something more avant-garde, special and heartfelt. It’s what I crave every time I pick up the camera, whether it is an image of my daughter in the comfort of my own home or a wedding photograph at any one of the many exceptional locations world-wide.

One of the captured photographs is above.
……..a few wedding details from Susan and Stephan’s wedding at Veritas this summer.
I was photographing a tighter detail shot of Monica’s dress while she was walking……out of the corner of my eye, I saw our furry friend pop into the frame, depressed the shutter release, and this image was the result.
Monica is enjoying a moment with the kids.
