Here are some of the general questions I often get asked .
“What’s your style?”
Throughout our coverage of the wedding day, we let everything unfolds as it happens and capture it in an unobtrusive way. We focus on the moments that make your special day memorable from the moment of the first look to the emotional hugs with your parents. Our shooting style is almost 100% photojournalism and we won’t stop you from enjoying and spending time with your family and friends. Although, we strongly suggest you to give us thirty minutes to one hour to create beautiful and creative portraits that you will love.
“Why should we hire you?”
Because we are passionate about telling your story with our photographs. We absolutely love weddings and understand how important our job is as a photographer to document the most important day of your life. We want you to relive your wedding day every time you look through the album as a husband and wife and also with your children and grandchildren in the future.
“What is your back story?”
In 2009, I started photography as a hobby for fun and I never thought I would get serious in this expensive hobby. One day, my friend asked me to shoot his wedding and I gladly accepted. After my first wedding, I began to grow more interest in photographing couples and their relationships. From there, my work has grown tremendously and my couples are the motivation for me to become better.
