The Art, the HEART of Photography

Being a photographer is not just about buying expensive equipment or jumping into a profession because it looks like fun. Good photography is an extension of yourself, your talents and passions. A fine artist and adjunct instructor at local colleges, I know that beautiful and well composed images do not just happen. Posing different body types to their best advantage takes skill; I see pictures before I take them. Also, those precious family portraits must be carefully and quickly constructed or else they are a mess - and an aggravation.

All the candid images in the world cannot make up for a picture of a special relative that was forgotten or neglected. My paying close attention to details and what truly needs to be captured may not be considered photojournalistic, but it assures you of a selection of flattering photographs that will become priceless memories. This is not just my art, this is who I am. 

Experience that Pays Off  

How many years does it take to understand weddings? Decades. Knowing almost every reception venue in New Jersey makes my work easier; being respected by them also adds to my credibility. The staff knows I am a professional and that we all need to work together as a team.

Weddings are on a schedule, regardless of what anyone thinks. The clock must be watched when the bride is dressing, at the church, the park, and especially during dinner. Spontaneous photo ops can only be taken advantage of if they do not interfere with the flow of the day. All the photography must be accomplished in an efficient manner without interferring with the bride and groom enjoying their reception.

This is part of the planning that must be discussed in advance. We also need to work together as a team. The time we spend working out details beforehand will pay us back a hundredfold the day of!

Affordable Excellence: Two Weeks or Less all that you'll have to wait for your images on a DVD. I edit out the bloopers, white balance the rest and get them to you ASAP to enjoy - usually before you are back from your honeymoon! You are free to reprint the images at will. They are yours.
