Featured in Professional Photographer magazine (PPA)

I’m featured in the latest edition of Professional Photographer magazine – it is the official magazine of the Professional Photographers of America. It is a huge honor that the editors at Professional Photographer approached me and wrote a feature about my wedding photography. The article concentrates on my approach to lighting, with a reference to the books I’ve written on flash photography.

For the photographs I selected to accompany the article, I chose what I think are images representative of my style – clean and crisp with strong colors. Over the years, as my style in wedding photography matured, I find that I tend to shoot more and more in an unfussy, uncluttered way … a way that I hope will prove to be timeless. For the selection of photos for this article, I biased it towards images of the couple from the romantic portrait session on their wedding day. That’s my favorite part of the wedding day – collaborating with the bride and groom for stylish photographs of the two of them together.
