"I originally asked a friend of mine who is a professional videographer and amateur to shoot photos of my wedding. She very artfully and quite forcefully told me that I needed to hire a professional! She was right - having you shoot our wedding really drove that home.
I was referred to several photographers and looked at their websites. I noticed that the general feel of wedding photos is very "fuzzy" and romantic. As soon as I saw your website I thought "Wow. He is taking pictures of the wedding, rather than shooting ideal photographs of people in love (not that these are exclusive!)."
"You told the whole story of our wedding day; from the small moments like Rob's family making a train of coolers to the big moments during the ceremony when light was radiating behind the bride and groom while we exchanged our vows. Your photos captured some of our friends and family in the best, truest sense of who they are. They were not merely wedding photos, but great portraits of the people we love. You had a sequence in which you shot, following the slow build-up of excitement, the tension in the moments just prior, the sacredness of the ceremony and the glory and fun following our vows. There was a beginning and an end, and a thoroughness of capturing the people, the environment and small details that spoke to the quality of the day; the bus that delivered guests, champagne bottles splayed over ice, flowers co-mingled while being arranged in vases, a homespun sign flapping in the wind.
"Viewed as a whole, your photos have the structure of a story, while each one gives insight into the characters involved and illustrate the feel of the event. They are a pleasure to view, as they remind my husband, friends and family of the many delightful moments that unfolded throughout the day. Your pictures reveal the depth of caring between him and I, between us and our friends, and between family members. And they are simply beautiful."
