- Serving Annapolis, Maryland, (MD)
A wedding day is a big party for the bride and groom, family and friends. Let us capture the moment in pictures.
I was a kid in a friends basement with a couple of trays of photographic chemicals and some light-sensitive photographic paper and BOOM!! ...I
was hooked on the magic of PHOTOGRAPHY.
I was first published while in my sophomore year of high school with a double page spread in the high school yearbook . Later, I was the photographer for the high school newspaper and yearbook.
My formal training started in Pensacola, F Photographers Mate S technical parts of the Navy and learned from the
Got out of the active duty Navy and went to work for the Government as a Photographer , but stayed in the Navy Reserves for the fellowship of being around other fellow Photographers in the area.
As I do very little advertising, most of my wedding business is by word-of-mouth. I operate very low key at the wedding-my attitude is the guests should be watching the Bride and Groom, not some "dummy' photographer trying to make a nuisance of himself.
I prefer to start where the Bride is getting dressed about an hour before she plans to leave for the Church where I usually photograph the ceremony from the back using high speed film and a telephoto lens to remain as unobtrusive as possible.
After the ceremony the altar photographs only take about 15 minutes-then some nice photographs of the Bride and Groom outside-then we're off to the reception.
Again, at the reception I am very low key, moving in, getting the shot, and getting out of the enjoy your reception, not be bothered by that "dummy" photographer as stated above.
If you have been a Bridesmaid you may know some of the HORROR stories I have heard about P
There are some photos that are set-up but most are candid shots so you can actually enjoy your reception, family and guests.
I only photograph one wedding a day and operate on a first come-first serve is due the day of the wedding.
I use medium format photographic equipment (Hasselblad camera) and always carry back-up equipment.
Wedding day is a big party for the Bride and Groom, family and friends and it is my responsibility to record the , families get together for weddings and funerals and I don't do funerals.
