As a wedding photographer, I strive to capture your story in images. My highest wish is to capture your personality and the atmosphere at your wedding and create a visual story that even decades from now, takes you back to that day. If you choose me as your wedding photographer, it is important that you have seen how I tell wedding stories. Therefore I have chosen to create wedding stories from select weddings, to give you a better idea of how I work and to help you better decide whether I am the right wedding photographer for you.
Below you can read about my approach to wedding photography and what I strive to create when I tell wedding stories. I could write page after page about style and approach, but for the sake of simplicity, I have chosen three areas to focus on.
MORE THAN A PORTRAIT
Interesting composition and photographs with “WOW-factor” have always fascinated me. I always look for opportunities to create a portrait that really captivates the viewer – something that is more art than a photo. It may be a staircase with perfect symmetry, a beautiful old wall, or a pattern – something graphical.
SMILES & SPLIT-SECONDS
A portrait can be reshot, but the fleeting spontaneous moments that happen during your wedding won’t happen again. My most important mission is to capture these moments happening during your wedding day before it is too late. I always shoot after the circumstances and tell the story of your wedding honestly and as I see it unfold. Some would call it photojournalistic, others call it reportage.
RELAXED & CANDID
One thing, I hear from almost any couple, is “we are not photogenic” or “we feel uneasy in front of a camera”. I believe shooting portraits should be fun and not awkward. When I shoot portraits, I always do everything I can to make you relax. Helping you to relax, helps me with capturing romantic and candid moments. I may prompt you to do specific things but I don’t “micropose” – it needs to be fun and natural to shoot portraits.
