The word which most accurately describes my style of photography is likely photojournalism. I prefer if people don’t even notice me. Perhaps a better word would be ninja. =)
For the most part, I capture un-posed, honest moments of everything going on, from the main focus (you two) to your wedding party, your families, friends, random spectators, the surroundings, and anything else which helps make up the scene.
The exception is the posed shots, which most of my couples do in these two stages: first, portraits with family and close friends captured immediately following the ceremony, usually on-site.
Second, while family and friends chat or wander off to bide their time before the reception, the couple and their wedding party caravan to various locations for photos with cool and diverse backdrops.
In addition to the cost of high-end photography gear (primary and backup camera bodies and lenses, flashes, tripods and light stands, light modifiers, batteries/chargers, and more) and the time investment in education & experience to properly & effectively wield said gear (with great power…), there are many hours spent in research, preparation, communication, consultation, and planning out your big day.
The wedding day itself can mean as much as 14 hours of capturing the best moments and details from the preshow, the ceremony, the family portraits, the formals, the reception, and as much in-between goodness as possible.
Afterward, the work continues, including transferring a couple thousand photos, making multiple backups (and taking some offsite), culling down to the best shots, editing the finals by hand, and preparing them for delivery.
You can trust a professional photographer, which means you can concentrate on other things, like that lovely person you’re getting married to.
I’m a fly on the wall while you and your wedding party get their makeup and hair did, while the gents get their top buttons buttoned (and really, not much else; guys have it easy), and while the dress is primed for the big reveal.
After you’re both ready, and before the ceremony, you two are unveiled to each other in a quiet moment at a special spot while I capture the smiles from a distance.
It’s an excellent tension-breaker and, while we’re there, we can do a few posed shots to split the formals before and after the ceremony.
These are often the most longest-lasting and most important photos from your wedding day, and they range from simple and understated to grand and glorious.
It could be a hike up a mountain, playing in the sand on the beach, riding a dirt bike, or wading a few feet into the ocean.
It’s a great contrast to the typical formality of the wedding, and a great opportunity to have silly fun in fancy clothes.

Our route (planned for efficiency) will allow us the most locations in the time we have.
Family/baby Focus on fun
It’s not “sit there, look up, and smile;” it’s having fun family time with someone to capture it all (and capture ALL of you in the photos).
And, for babies, it’s about quiet, warmth, and patience (lots of patience).
