Why I Love Weddings:
I love to shoot weddings because no two weddings are ever alike. Seeing families from different cultures and backgrounds come together to celebrate a day of happiness and harmony, as well as all of the different dynamics and energies is always refreshing and exciting to visit as a photographer.
When photographing a wedding, you are never JUST photographing the wedding, you are photographing the journey that led up to the wedding and all of the emotion that comes with that. Being able to capture those moments in photography never gets old for me and makes for amazing photography that will never get old for me documenting!
A Little Bit About Myself:
I am a photographer born and raised in NYC. I feel like being a photographer in NYC is such a blessing because you can take your camera mostly anywhere and take really interesting shots of all that is happening in the city, so I try to carry my camera with me as much as possible.
I love photography because I feel as though it is so important to be able to capture life's most important moments because they can be gone in an instant with no way of being able to tangibly look back on those moments we live for, even if it's just on your phone. I love being able to tell all sorts of narratives through photography and being able to tell wedding stories through photography is no exception!
I shoot very candidly whenever I can. I feel like a photograph is most effective and most powerful when its taken when my subjects aren't super focused on taking the picture. If I am posing for a composed shot, I try to make sure my subjects are as comfortable and as natural as they possibly can be to let their genuine emotion shine through. All I ask is for my subjects to be themselves and not focus too much being too posed for the photograph, have fun, be yourself, and I will take care of the rest!
Other forms of photography I practice outside of Wedding Photography is Street Photography in NYC. Outside of it honing in on my skill to take powerful candid shots, I love NYC Street Photography because it lets me capture the energy and culture of NYC in its rawest form which makes for very impactful storytelling in photography.
I also play guitar and piano!
