I always do a location scout before a wedding or a portrait shoot. I usually do this at the same time of day and year that the shoot will happen so I can assess the light. I hate being unprepared and I like to think about interesting ideas before arriving on assignment day.
I know there are a lot of photographers who leave the reception straight after the first dance. I am at a wedding for a minimum of 10 hours and have been known to shoot for 14 hours!! I love photographing dancing at the reception. This is the time when people have forgotten all about me and are just having fun!
Gosh, I am not faithful to any particular lens. I have different moods and some shots need a different focal length and I change lenses accordingly.
I am really fascinated by people. I love traveling, I love meeting new people and I love going to new places. But more then that I am intrigued by peoples’ stories and what makes them tick.
