About

His philosophy for photographing a wedding is pretty simple - stay out of the way. His method is to let the day unfold naturally and then capture the moments as it does. And, it works.

Real Wedding: Liz and Graham, II

When I was a kid, I used to go to a wedding and see these massive, over-the-top huge centerpieces and I would think...wow, this is a fancy wedding. Well, it's funny how much my tastes have developed and changed through the years. Now, I see a wedding like this and think...wow, this is a great wedding. The bride is stunning her simplicity, the decor is modern and chic and the centerpieces, well, they are perfect. Totally approachable, totally sophisticated.

Real Wedding: Liz and Graham
