I’m inspired by my clients. A wedding’s a pressure cooker, and if you look carefully people tend to show who they really are. It’s funny, revealing, and beautiful.
I let people be themselves and capture them as they are. Each group of friends and family is different, and I follow their leads. I do everything possible to make the people around the camera feel comfortable … sometimes it’s joking around, sometimes it’s blending into the walls. And sometimes—I’m not proud of this—it’s “accidentally” hip-checking nosy guests out of the way.
I wear a tie to every wedding, my smile muscles get sore from chatting with uncles and grandmas, and my popularity soars when we finish the group photos in 15 minutes and everyone can head off to the cocktail hour. More time experiencing the day, less time posing for the camera.
