We don’t shoot photographs. We don’t take pictures.
We make photographs. We create pictures.
A distinction without a difference? Don’t bet on it.
Ansel Adams observed, "Photography is an investigation of the outer and the inner worlds. The terms “shoot” and “take” are not accidental. They represent an attitude of conquest and appropriation. Only when the photographer grows in perception and creative impulse does the term “make" define a condition of empathy and understanding."
We strive to make our photographs definitionally distinguished. They are not made for a syndicated audience. Our photographs are made for a small group of clients who get us... and we get them. If you want to define what distinguishes our photographs, it has something to do with appreciating marriage as permanent and sacred while seeing the wedding celebration as evanescent and temporal.
If you set out to photograph a wedding as an evanescent celebration of marriage versus a permanent documentation of people and things; you get photographs that meaningfully interpret the temporal as something truly definitionally distinguished as sacred and rare.
