At one wedding, I mentioned that I wanted to get some images of the bodice and accents on the wedding dress.... the bride said: "Bodice..... no guy knows that word!!!!" Well, when you have
four sisters and you have been a professional photographer for 20 years, yes you can be a guy and know "bodice" and how important that dress is to the bride. And as a man, I can appreciate how incredibly beautiful a woman is on her wedding day. I have seen big men reduced to tears when they see that wild cowgirl with make-up, gorgeous hair and a dress that literally stops their hearts.
Yet I have seen so many of the new gang of self-proclaimed "pros" posting wedding snapshots of a
stunning bride but her dress is a white blob with no detail. She has spent huge amounts of time picking the perfect dress which has often cost the same as a good used car and the so-called pro has given them
an over-exposed image with no detail. That is what is called a mistake, an error and what you often get with the latest trends in wedding photography. My goal is to get classic, timeless beautiful images
along with lots of fun, creative and whimsical shots. There is a difference.
