About me

_FJD1677-Sequence # (0001)-2

I’m Christian.  I’m a Wedding Photographer, I’m a husband, and the father to the greatest little girl on the planet.  I am also a fan of the Oxford comma.  I love working with people.  I love the challenge of being in the right place at the right time to capture moments that tell a story.  Your story.

Photography is something I love, and it’s one of the very few things that can drag me from my family on a weekend.  On a wedding day my focus is not only on making photos that come together to tell a story like a great movie, but it’s also to make sure that the whole experience is fun for you and your guests.  Why?  Because nobody hates memories of a great time. I want your wedding day to be memorable…in the best way.

Outside of photography and my family, I’m a runner & triathlete.  Over the past 2 years I have run five marathons (including one in the Swiss Alps with my sister), one UltraMarathon and am currently training for an Ironman 70.3 triathlon in July 2017.  My longer-term goal is to do a full Ironman (known as the toughest single day in sport) in 2018.  So…you can be pretty sure that I won’t be too tired to get great dancing photos at the end of the night.

I love that clients, family, and guests at weddings often tell me “You’re doing a great job!” at some point during the wedding day.  Why?  Because they haven’t seen a single photo yet.  It tells me that they’re enjoying themselves. Nothing gives me a more complete sense of satisfaction than working with people who “never look good in pictures”, and making photos that they *LOVE*.   I strive to make photos that convey the spirit of my subjects, their feelings, and their lifestyle.

 

My approach:  I’m very visible and interactive when it’s time for family/wedding party photos, and when working with you to make some beautiful & creative portraits.  The rest of the day, I work hard to try and capture strong documentary images to tell the story of the day, while going almost unnoticed by your wedding guests…yet always there for you when needed.   Note: the unnoticed part doesn’t apply once the dance floor starts…once things cut-loose, I’m always in the thick of it!

That’s pretty much me.  That, plus I’m far too young to have this much grey hair.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you want to chat about your wedding, an idea, or even just ask a question, drop me a note and say hello!
