A perfect match: photojournalism + weddings

As a photojournalist I spend most of my time with new acquaintances in both joyful and stressful moments in their lives, all while trying to photograph each person with as little intrusion as possible. So shooting wedding has always been a natural fit for me and something I’ve always enjoyed doing. I keep it simple. I stay in the moment, stay out of the way and create images that you will want to look at for years to follow. MattLinh_5373Weddings are unpredictable. So I go after fleeting moments like this one with Linh & Matt who decided to elope but wanted a fly-on-the-wall view to share their romantic day with family and friends.

Ruth & Leah just wanted something simple; to hang out on the beach while the sun dropped into the water and then spend a couple of hours having dinner with a small group of very close friends. I only spent two hours with this sweet couple…and sometimes that’s all that’s needed.
