Wedding Sampler

Weddings are exceptionally special to me. It is one of the most beautiful days and occasions in a couple's life where they openly profess their love and commit their lives to one another . . . forever.  I like to take special care and effort in getting to know the bride and groom - their likes, their wishes, their preferences, how they met, etc. After all, it is their day and the photographs should be the quintessential reflection of who they are and a powerful expression of their love.

Below are a few images of weddings that reflect that style.  My style is mostly photojournalistic and I love to capture those special moments and emotional events of that extraordinary day in an extraordinary way, its kind of like telling a story with pictures.

The intimate details, the beautiful spaces, the look in their eyes, the innocence of a child's face, the tears of joy, the elements of surprise, I wait expectantly to find so that they can last a lifetime.....

Chanicka + Roniel

Chanicka and Roniel are a great couple that I worked with a few days ago in Houston, TX.   We did a commercial-style fashion shoot engagement session for them - which I love!  The day began with a large chance of rain; however when the sun came out the shoot became spectacular!

When shooting Chanicka and Roniel it was like shooting Denzel and Kerry Washington, two of my favorite actors.  As you can see from the pictures, they favor them a lot.  Chanicka and Roniel have an edgy flare about themselves.  We were able to be very creative . . . and a little bold and flirty - nothing traditional.  They were very relaxed and easy to pose.  Seriously, it was like working with professional models.

Chancika and Roniel were definitely a pleasure to work with.  We had a great time.  I know their wedding day will be awesome!
