Why choose me?
Never before has technology made it easier for people to take pictures. Digital SLR’s have taken a lot of the guess work out of photography and rekindled an interest and passion for the craft. That’s a good thing. What’s not so good is believing that owning a nice camera suddenly makes someone a photographer. You cant go out and buy yourself a nice set of pots and then call yourself a chef, so don’t be tricked into thinking that it works with photography. Its easy to take a photo when it doesn’t really matter if you get it right or not. Its easy when you dont have 300 people standing around waiting for you . Its easy when things are running on time and the weather is nice and everyone is a natural in front of the camera. Unfortunately that’s not the way a lot of weddings go. A professional wedding photographer knows this, and has the skills, knowledge, equipment and temperament to deal with whatever the day throws up.

No, I'm a human just like you. :D

Aaaah Photography. Some of the popular “styles” associated with wedding photography are candid, documentary, photojournalistic, art wedding photography and other fancy words like these. What I do is a mixture of all of these styles.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I’ve shot enough weddings, in good light, bad light, no light. With lots of time, just enough time and no time at all. In rain and in shine. (no hail yet – thankfully!) With couples who are totally at home in front of a camera and with those who couldn't think of anything worse than a photoshoot.
How many photographers do you work with?
I am a one man army - With that being said; It totally depends on your requirement. I can get 1-100 photographers, but the question is "Are you hosting the wedding for the photographers?"
