authentic wedding photography

Here is what I think....  You should have a great time at your wedding. Don't worry about that smile, or looking too stiff or whatever else. Just relax and enjoy the day. Spend time talking with old school friends. Party like the old days. Enjoy conversation with the old folks. Cry a bit, laugh a lot, and maybe drink too much. It's all good. It's your day so celebrate it your way!

real moments documented

Because the whole do-that-again request is so lame, right? I'm an expert at anticipating moments, and being in the right place at the right time. It's easy to dictate a situation and make a pretty picture, it is a true skill to be in the right place at the right time to capture a moment unfolding.
