Charleston, SC, hosts many events, and as a photographer of 19 years, I capture various events apart from weddings. For any event involving wedding photography, the images must speak for themselves. As the client, you must communicate your needs when hiring an event photographer. In the case of wedding photography, I always schedule a phone conference with the clients to understand their vision and specific requests. I pay attention to wedding details, like the bride's heels, to create compelling artistic images. Before capturing a photo, I study the product, light, pose, and camera settings to ensure the final image speaks to the bride. My branding involves capturing artistic wedding images that challenge me throughout the wedding day. I hope to have the honor and challenge of documenting your wedding. Thank you.
