All wedding photographers take pictures. I believe there is by far more to the job than just taking pictures. What I do as a wedding photographer is capture the love and beauty of your wedding day. It’s not a taking endeavor at all, rather, it is to record the moments of your wedding day then produce images for you to enjoy for the years to come.
The expertise required for wedding photography is an extraordinary combination of artistic ability, technical training and top of the line equipment. Photographers with all these skills are few and the most talented people in this field are hard to find. Beyond the technical expertise with cameras, equipment, and a knowledge of lighting both broad and sublime, wedding photography requires sensitivity, compassion, intuition and an eye developed over many years of photographing people.
I have photographed weddings in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles and all of Southern California for more than 25 years and I am one of the early photographers to use photojournalism to cover weddings. Also, having a background in Editorial and Studio Photography, I photographs weddings in a combination of all styles from the Classic and Photojournalistic to a little Avant-garde. I have spent all these years trying to perfect a combination of classic, photojournalistic and creative photography that fits both my clients’ taste and my personal taste as an event photographer. What I have learned and accepted is that there is no perfecting of this. Things change, people change, styles change. I myself have a different overall style now than I did ten years ago. So I keep an open mind and aim to fit this combination of styles to what I have learned about you.
