Portraits

epic

I talk a lot about moments and candid photos that are actually candid.  But fear not, we still allot for as much time as you two would like to capture formal & traditional  photographs, along with some seriously kick ass portraits!

I grew up wanting to become a sports photographer. But instead I ended up joining the Navy straight out of high school. For the next 6 years I'd spend about 75% of my life on or in the ocean. Hence the "Salt" part of "Salt & Sonder". It was during that time that all my stories came together to bring me to where, and who, I am today. A few years after I left the Navy I ended up volunteering to photograph a Marines wedding at a local church. The rest is history. 3 years later I was quitting my day job and I haven't looked back since.  

Wedding photography for me is the ultimate in photojournalistic photography. I use the term photojournalistic cautiously on the site because it is over and misused in the wedding photography world. But I think of weddings as the ultimate story of two people and their families coming together. It's a day everyone will remember forever and the photographs that can be created from that day are just epic! As long as you are patient and allow the stories to unfold in front of the camera, the rewards are spectacular and the end result is hopefully something my couples will cherish forever.
