It's all about capturing that moment.
A moment that will document your history and create a cherished keepsake.
For the last six years I referred to myself to be a "wedding photojournalist." I love capturing genuine moments and staying out of the way while I work. The only issue I had with this idea is that every guest at a wedding with a camera could be considered a photojournalist. We are all taking pictures of the same event and telling a story with our images. I wanted something that reflected not only my style, but my technique and quality.
I realized that "commercial wedding photographer" better describes what I do. "Commercial wedding photography" takes "photojournalism" and reflects the level of professional quality in my work. I provide my clients with magazine quality images. I use the same lighting equipment and techniques in my wedding photography as in my commercial work.
It's not just about capturing that moment, but it's also about creating that moment.
