Your wedding is an expression of who you are as a couple, and chances are you’re planning a celebration that’s a little unconventional. Your wedding won’t be traditional – why should your wedding photography? My passion is to help you break free from the mainstream, reject the mediocre, and really, honestly, be true to yourself.
I’m an award-winning photographer with an artistic documentary style. Just like you, I’m tired of the same old cookie-cutter shots (the sappy couple pose that could slay a 90’s rom com, the wedding party that seems to have turned into statues, the dreaded prom pose...). On your big day I’ll capture the spontaneous, authentic moments that really matter.
I’ve photographed all sorts of weddings: same-sex, Indian-fusion, Jewish, and blended families. Whatever your orientation, culture, or creative vision - I’ll collaborate with you throughout the planning process. Whether you have a bounty of ideas or choose to give me free rein, I will always stay true to you.

Just a fun photo, good moment and represents the reaction to the heat in a humorous way.
Wonderfully composed photo of bride and her party trying to avoid the wind.
This scene is rather surreal. Perhaps there was no building for shelter against the rain. Nonetheless, the attendees stand beneath their umbrellas and continue as though nothing is happening. The “show,” of course, must go on.
To the delight of the crowd this groom is plastered with the entire plate. We’re not talking about those little, itsy-bitsy child-sized bites normally used to denigrate a spousal face. No, this time it’s the entire plate of cake - including the plate. Anyway, it’s a fun moment that surely delights more than the mirthful crowd watching this poor groom get his comeuppance for the audacity to get married. I’m just kidding - well, all except the photo. It’s a wonderful image.
This was the photographer's strong vision. Loved the focus on the rain and the silhouetted face falling out of focus. This image has a real artistic quality. Nicely done.
Beautiful photograph. Very well done detail. The light and dark tones balance perfectly.
I couldn’t rest the deviousness of this detail. This photo continued to rise through the ranks until taking it’s winning throne. But isn’t it amazing that the entire image rests upon the glisten of a singular trail of rain on the man’s jacket? It all comes down to that one glistening highlight to make the image what it is.
