While you’re on your quest to find the perfect photographer for your wedding, you’ll probably end up visiting dozens of photographer’s websites. Some of them, the photography will strike a chord with you immediately. Others, you won’t remember, and you’ll lump them in with everyone else. Either way, it really boils down to only two types of photos: photos you like, and photos you don’t.
Hopefully, for you, mine fall into the first category. ;)
Out here on the west coast, the vibe and style is very light and airy. The Los Angeles and Vancouver vibe! And while it’s very pretty, honestly, it is NOT my style at all. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it; I’m just not inspired by it. If that’s the style you’re into, there are some KILLER photographers out here who NAIL that vibe, and I’m definitely more than happy to refer you to them! My feelings won’t be hurt. :)
My style, on the other hand, is the polar opposite of light and airy. You’ll find my photos to be rich and contrasty. “Visually aggressive” is what I call it. What this boils down to is simple: I just light my clients differently. This way, I can keep the deep blue sky. I can keep the famous west coast sunset. I can keep the moody and intense storm clouds. None of that gets blown out. My goal is to leave you with a work of art! When someone sees your photo, it’s totally cool for them to say “oh wow, that’s very pretty”, but I prefer them to say “HOLY SHIT!”
Here, let me show you what I’m talking about. This is an example from a shoot I did for Vancouver Fitness (VNFT), which is a local fitness apparel company.
The photo on the left is light and airy. The photo on the right is visually aggressive. They’re both awesome, it just boils down to which STYLE you prefer. And if you’re more into the visually aggressive style, I think we’re gonna be a good match!
Get at me today, and let’s grab a coffee!
