A few years back, I was already an established landscape photographer when my cousin asked me to photograph her wedding.

When I do things, I'm 100% committed. My first move was to read tons of articles about wedding photography and to go through hundreds of images to get a grasp of what to do and what not to do. I was highly influenced by the great Tyler Wirken and his journalistic approach. On top of learning a few tricks from his blog, I also bought the right gear, a 35mm prime lense.

The smile on my cousin's face when she saw her photos was so rewarding that I decided to shoot more weddings and soon after it became a full-time job.

Over the years, I have developed my ability to be at the right place at the right time, by anticipating every moment of a wedding. This helps me to capture all the emotions going on on the big day.

Shooting weddings has had a great influence on my approach to photography and my personal life. I now apply the same principles when I take pictures of my own baby-girls: my wife is so grateful to have souvenirs of these candid family moments. This is why I take so much pride in documenting weddings, because I know how important these moments are for the bride and groom.
