Which is your all-time favorite wedding image and why?
I constantly strive for to capture authentic moments, especially when the capture is least aware of me. Also, I love the challenge of capturing moments in transition, as the couple transition from one emotion into another. So, this is why the image below represents one of my all time favorite images. The gorgeous couple had just finished their ceremony and was walking off to a quiet moment for themselves. In that transition, I see a multitude of emotions roll up into one and I am gratitude to witness that beauty.
Why did you decide to be a photographer?
I accidentally stumbled into becoming a photographer. After traveling with a camera and being drawn to capturing people, I realize that I had to give this natural gift a chance to grow. Having been an engineer in a previous lifetime, it was such an exciting prospect to do something creative and emotional gratifying such as being witness to one of life’s joyous rite of passage.
