How did you get into wedding photography?

I studied Documentary Photography at the Salt Institute in Maine, and after went on to assist so many different types of photographers. At some point, I realized I only actually enjoyed shooting weddings, everything else felt like work. And from there, I decided to start my business.

What is your favorite part of the wedding day to capture?

There isn’t one particular moment, but rather all of the joy and love expressed throughout the day. Every couple’s day is different and the height of these emotions will happen at different moments for each.

What is the most awkward moment you’ve experienced while on the job?

I realize that every family has their issues, from unfriendly divorces to the fun uncles. My most awkward would probably have to be when the MOB who paid for the photography insisted that no photos of the FOB and his new wife were taken. I had to sneak in snaps.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding photographers just getting started?

Reach out and find other photographers to learn from, and get out and shoot as much as possible even if it’s not weddings to learn technique.
