Sometimes I find myself in a meeting being asked if I can shoot in *this* style or *that* style… “can you make our photos look like [insert random photography trend here]?” And my answer is… well, no. I mean… can I… do I have the ability? Absolutely. Will I? No.
What you see is what you get with me… in all respects. My personality, my shooting style, my post production style… this is who I am, this is how I work, this is what your photos will look like.
My photos are classic, straightforward… bright, colorful… and hopefully and most importantly, timeless. There are a lot of photography trends out there right now – and if you look back at your parents’ wedding albums from the 70’s and 80’s… there were trends then too. Some of which we like to laugh at now. My goal is for your children or nieces or nephews to open your wedding album and marvel over how beautiful you looked on your wedding day, how in love you were, how happy all your friends were on the dance floor. I don’t want them to laugh at how dated the actual photographs look… “Oh, I can tell that was taken in 2011 because it’s been edited in such and such way…”
I was never cool or popular in school; I never had the trendiest, most awesome shoes or clothes. I was just me. As an adult, I’m pretty much the same way… I like things that stand the test of time – Jackie O. sunglasses, peacoats, little black dresses. I think my photography is a perfect reflection of that. Trends certainly have their place, and they can be really fun – and if that’s who you are… rock it out! But this is me… and I like to think my colorful, natural style will always be in vogue.
So if you’re looking for the latest photography trend, I don’t think I’m the right photographer for you. But if you’re looking for a photographer to deliver photographs that will never go out of style… images that won’t end up being the shoulder pads of photography… then we should chat.
