Why I Became a Wedding Photographer
Back in 2004, I shot my first wedding and fell instantly, irreversibly in love with the thrill of documenting a story as it unfolds in front of me. No matter where I point the lens, another layer of the story presents itself.
I’ve photographed hundreds of events since then, from weddings and vow renewals to christenings, brises, bar / bat mitzvahs and other family milestones. I’ve continued in the same vein, using a photojournalistic style to capture my clients’ love stories.
I’ve been an avid photographer since I bought a Kodak disc camera (!) at age 13. I trained at Pomona College in Claremont, CA, and later in New York City at the New York Institute of Photography and the School of Visual Arts. I’ve tramped with my cameras through 26 countries and all 7 continents, including Antarctica. My photographs have been published in the United States and internationally.
