Photographers are hired for all reasons. Whether you are hiring them for a birthday bash, a wedding, a maternity session, a newborn session, a family portrait session or a corporate event, you need to like the photographer as much as their work.
Your photographer essentially must be “in your shoes” on the day of the event or session. They need to be able to understand what it is the client wants to have as keepsakes and wants to remember about the event. This takes experience, talent, focus and most of all, a fitting personality.
Derek & Heleana chose us to photograph their wedding day (wedding at Japanese Friendship Garden and reception at Irish Culture Center). Although I have done over 100 weddings, I still put a lot of effort into making sure I am grabbing details that matter to the Bride & Groom as well as details they may not think of in the moment, but want later. I also add in a few of my signature images. I consider my knowledge of Arizona sunsets to be my competitive advantage…and I use it whenever I can!
