Posted on 24 March 2017

style for a celebrity wedding I was planning back in 2010, sadly he was already booked, but this did not stop us from working together along with his wife Angela many times since them!

What made you become a Photographer?

It started, innocently enough, as a hobby. Angela was singing regularly in a gospel choir, and I would follow them with my brand new Canon Rebel XT in a mix of dedicated husbandly support and a dose of Asian techno-geekery. As it turned out, those photos weren’t too bad and I started getting calls around the city to photograph more gospel artists. I was drawn to the raw emotion of people when they sing with reckless abandon. Music, especially gospel music, requires the musicians to believe in every note that they belt out. It is real, authentic, and it’s so visually interesting.

How long have you been in business?

I started shooting professionally in 2006.

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

15-17

What is the one thing you love most about being a photographer

I fell in love with the immediacy of a photograph – you push the shutter, and you’ve literally captured a moment. What was once fleeting, is now forever. I became a collector of moments.

Do you have a specific style?

I consider myself very documentary style, although not exclusively so. My clients usually are attracted to moments, candid and natural emotions.

How would you describe your working style on the day?

I’m fairly discreet. I try to affect the day as little as possible, and allow the excitement, enjoyment and enthusiasm of the day naturally play out, and then I photograph that.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding photographer?

Choosing a photographer only based on price. Photography is not a commodity, it is an investment that increases in value the further we get away from the event. A photographer is besides you for most of one of the most important days of your lives, choose a photographer that understands your style and personality.

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

I’ve worked very hard at developing my eye to see moments before they happen,  to find and use light to visually highlight emotion, and to use the existing surroundings to frame an image to best tell a story. At the end of the day, weddings are not just about pretty pictures, but about documenting a personal history that culminates on a single day. My goal is to accomplish this with each wedding.

What advise can you give to the 2017 Brides & Grooms?

In marriage as with life, what you do today will affect tomorrow. Invest in things that will last.

What are the photography trends for 2017?

I think these days, as with most things couples are after authenticity in their photos – so staged, or over-styled shoots are falling away to moment-driven imagery that convey real emotion and relationships.
