As owner and lead photographer of Expert Photography, I'm thrilled to be able to do what I love. With many years experience in wedding photography and a passion for artistry, I capture images that artfully blend style and sophistication with the raw emotion of the day. I bring a professional, yet fun personality to each shoot, putting couples at ease on what can be a wonderfully jittery day. My goal is to make the seemingly impossible shots happen without batting an eyelash.
What's truly amazing about my job is that I continue to be inspired with each event. At any given moment, you might find me with a couple saying, "All right, we're done for the day." Then something will catch my eye - gorgeous contrasting colors or a one-of-a-kind backdrop - and we're on to the next shot.
Every wedding is one-of-a-kind, and every couple is special. If I'm going to document your unique story with style and flair, I need to know what makes you tick. I'll spend a lot of time with you – from the initial meeting to the pre-wedding shoots, including engagement, bridal, boudoir, and more. I'll get to know your personality, your likes and dislikes, and what you really want to see as you turn the pages of your wedding album. By the time you begin your happily-ever-after, I'll be just as much your friend as I am your photographer. Building this personal connection results in images that are stunning, yet natural; dramatic, yet true to your personality.
On the most ordinary of days, a fabulous wedding photographer can snap an image that will blow you away. It's all about the lighting, focus, and picture-perfect timing. But this is no ordinary day. This is a one-of-a-kind, in-the-spotlight, knock-their-socks-off-when-you-stroll-down-the-aisle kind of day. This is your wedding day, and that calls for more than a fab photographer. You need someone who can direct the crowd with confidence and humour; who can handle the split-second decisions that make the difference between 'nice' photos and spectacular photos; who can artfully capture the details and emotions that will mean so much years from now. You can trust an expert to do the job!
