Action Shots

Action Shots and Anticipation.

Photography requires the ability to anticipate what is going to happen next. A handshake, a high five, tears being wiped away, a snuggly hug, or a holler of excitement… these moments appear and disappear within an instant.

In ten years of photography, I’ve been able to learn how to keep a keen eye on what is going to occur throughout a wedding so these moments are captured for you, forever.

Artistry and Your Vision

As I capture these images, I’m also capturing the look or theme the couples have envisioned.  Notice a rustic scenic park wedding will have a more earthy tonal flair, an outdoor garden wedding will have a more floral appeal with vibrant colors, and a vintage wedding will have a nostalgic presence highlighted in the images.

You’ll see the editing artistry I use for each image and how it is personalized for each wedding I photograph. The photography style remains the same, however, the image look is personal to your colors, venue, and tastes.

Now check these out!

In some instances, you capture the moment…A guest catches you…And then an awesome pose ensues! PERFECT!

This bride and groom had a choreographed dance, and the brides bustle came undone – They did an amazing job keeping it together without even missing a beat!

Genuine laughs are some of my favorite images!  I often review these and catch myself smiling back at them!

The first dances, the father-daughter, the mother-son, and more always leads to tears and tissues…

And then there’s just good ol’ sneaking up and getting those perfectly imperfect, fun, and enthusiastic moments!

hashtagPRESENTS for mySELFIE

HOLD UP !  This present is for my selfie ! 

I have been waiting for a few years to indulge in such an amazing piece of equipment for my art.  I couldn’t wait to order my brand new camera!  THE, (and yes “the” needs to be capitalized), THE Canon 5D Mark III.

I followed the tracking order all the way to my house for the next week…..then…..

And the package, not been opened, still is sitting still is sitting,

Atop the wooden buffet shelf right next to my front door;

And the box has all closed seams, of a package that is teasing,

And the lamp-light o’er it streaming throws its shadow on the floor;  

Stole this excerpt from the Raven, Thanks Poe, I’ll do poems

      Nevermore!

So here it is, 3 weeks later, and finally, FINALLY, this weekend I will get to play with my new toy!  I am very much looking forward to it and will post some new photographs soon ! 

Feel free to contact me if you’ll be in downtown Richmond, VA this Saturday night, February 13th!  We could use the #presentforourselfie !
