Photojournalism is more than the style of a photograph. It’s a way of working without stage-managing or setting up a situation. It’s about observation. It’s done by letting events flow in their natural direction, being ready for and finding the defining moments and relationships within the day.
When a collection of images is made in this fashion you have a story. Unique, elegant, and distinctly your own – this story is something to enjoy and remember for the rest of your days, and to pass on to the next generation.
I’ve been a full-time photojournalist for over 20 years. My photographs have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world. The methods that I’ve practiced and skills that I’ve honed through this experience let me give my wedding clients a compelling photo documentary of the day they join together in marriage. To do that I need to be there when all of that great stuff is happening. So instead of basing my coverage on a certain number of hours I show up when you’re getting ready and stay through the main events of the reception.
Portraits and formal family photos are really the only time of the day where I provide direction. The rest of the time is spent photographing the day as it unfolds. My clients often tell me that they’re surprised by the final images. This is because they didn’t realize that many of the photos were being taken. That’s the essence of what I’m after: Real moments, real emotions, real interactions. The stuff that makes your story yours.
All Day Coverage
With two collections you can choose the coverage that you need. Coverage includes getting ready through all of your key reception events including at least an hour of dancing. Both collections include the full-resolution image files. You can download them from a private online gallery that you can also share with your friends and family.
Single Photographer Coverage
Wedding day coverage by Joe – great for smaller weddings, especially those that take place in one location.
