I’m happy to announce that I’ve been accepted as a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association.
What is WPJA? It’s a nifty organization with a directory that lists like-minded wedding photographers from around the world who believe in the documentary style of photography.
I believe a wedding photographer should stay out of the way of the party while capturing honest and interesting moments as they unfold. It’s more important to me for clients to relax and enjoy their special day, rather than posing for a seemingly endless photo session.
I also believe that documentary photography never goes out of style. Will your kids or grandkids laugh at silly, trendy poses when they see your wedding album years down the road? Or will they smile and be moved by the photos of real moments of joy and love?
My love of documentary photography started as a kid while looking through big LIFE and National Geographic magazines. This is what I love doing, and it’s a skill I’ve proudly worked on for over 20 years.
