You're gettin' hitched! (YaY!) But perhaps you're not super into the idea of overly-manicured weddings. That's perfect, because this is not your grandma's wedding photography.  
I'm a documentary photographer who floats between the journalism and art worlds. I love equally telling stories and listening to the stories of others. So I tend to think of myself as an anti-wedding-photographer wedding photographer. Confusing, I know. But this means when I pick up my camera, I don't see "a wedding." I see humor and irony and color. I see people who are goofy, unabashedly happy, imperfect and going through a gushy mess of emotions. 
I believe weddings are some of the last remaining spaces that are truly free of cynicism and fear. They offer a safe space for all the emotions we hold dear, everything we want the world to be. They are a brave statement. And that's worth a lot.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm based in Mexico City and spend part of every summer back in my home state of New York. Charging travel fees are not always a given. I rarely charge for travel within Mexico. It really depends on how far outside these bases the wedding is.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I began shooting weddings with other photographers in 2007 and started my own company in 2009. I took a small hiatus while going back to grad school, but it's otherwise been a steady component of my business since then. To date (2019) I've shot 70 weddings as the first photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Having started off my education in art school but graduating from a journalism program, my style tends to float in the abstract space between those worlds, essentially a form of documentary storytelling.
