What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was of a couple, Michaela and Alex. What made it so memorable was the connection they had between them. You could see the love in their eyes when they looked at each other and I think that gives life to their photos.

Communicate with your photographer. The more I know about your special day, the better prepared I'll be and the better results you'll get from me.

The overall theme of the wedding. A specific theme really pulls everything together. It makes a wedding stand out and gives it that unique feeling.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First of all there is the initial "getting to know each other" meeting. We have to meet face to face in the early stages of the wedding to discuss the ideas the couple might have. I write everything down as to make sure nothing is left unattended. After this, there will be another e-mail, phone call or meeting right before the big day, just to recap everything and to make adjustments to the initial plan, if needed. And then there's just a matter of the couple enjoying themselves on their wedding day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That has to be a passionate kissing photo!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Well there was this couple once that asked me if I could also take some photos of them nude. But I can't show you those :D
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Unless there is a hurricane outside, we can always try using the rain in our advantage. Getting out with lots of umbrellas and making the best of it. To name a few of the shots we can create: watter reflections, droplets, no shoes on, wet hair, etc. Also, indoor shots work well too on a rainy day, but going out is a lot more fun.
Describe how you got into photography.
Photography started growing on me since 2012 when I got my first poin-and-shoot digital camera. I used to photograph flowers and insects and all kinds of things mother nature would have to offer. I still enjoy doing that today, but focusing on people is what matters the most. Simply put, the emotion caught in a picture cannot be compared to anything else out there. That's why photography was invented after all, to forever capture a moment in time which otherwise would just pass by and be forgotten over the years.
