Focus on the Light
The Decisive Moment
"There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition of an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
I have been in photography for quite some time now. Since I graduated with a degree in Studio Art Photography from Texas Tech University in 2006 I have spent the majority of my time living abroad, studying language, culture, religion. During this time I focused on documentary, adventure and travel photography. I am always in pursuit of portraying my subjects as their true self. In order to do this you must get to know them, that means getting to know their culture that is influenced by religion and language.
Next to my love for teaching art and photography is my love for photographing weddings. I love the challenge it brings plus the diversity of "photography styles" involved in wedding photography (documentary, macro, candid, portrait, family). So much goes into a single wedding, all the details, not to mention the randomness of the guests that makes each wedding so unique and just fun!
We all have stories to tell. My favorite thing as a wedding photographer is telling the story of the day. The day, is of course, the most important, greatest day of your life. My job is to tell your wedding story by documenting the day with all of the details, colors, decorations, events, friends and of course family. You plan everything down to the smallest details, I photograph everything down to the smallest details. Together, you and I are creating a book that holds the story that you pass down to your family for generations to come.
