From Brad: Photographing people on one of the most important days of their lives is not a hobby of mine, it is truly my life's work. Marriage is an institution of God, and it still humbles me everytime someone asks me to be a part of their wedding day. It is an honor that I approach with the utmost respect and servitude. I am always grateful to be able to witness two become one, and to be trusted to capture that moment.
On Style: Wedding photography is unlike any other form of photography. The challenges that wedding photographers face at every wedding require timing, positioning, specialized equipment, an artistic eye, and a personality that makes the wedding party feel comfortable with the person pointing a camera at them.
Great wedding photographers have the skills needed to capture the moment as it happens, without the bride and groom being hindered by the photographer’s presence. Floating from one shadow to the next, only being seen when the flash fires, then in an instant being invisible again. The goal is to tell the story of the day over and over again for years to come, and to make the images even more beautiful than the memories. The only way to capture such images, is to go unseen. This is how true moments in time are captured. Such is the mark of a wedding photojournalist. A story teller without words.
