I'm a wedding photographer based on the North Fork of Long Island.
For over 30 years, I was an award-winning North Fork fine-art landscape photographer using a fully manual film camera.
I had been asked about shooting weddingsover the years but always resisted. After all, with film you never really knew if you got the shot until days after the wedding was over, and that never made me feel comfortable.
But that all changed, of course, with digital cameras. So when I got a request from a customer to shoot his daughter's wedding, I got a digital camera, shot some images at my niece's wedding, and realized I might be good at this.
It turns out, all the years shooting with a manual camera and film, and learning how to capture the emotion and beauty of a scene so it communicates the beauty of the place, prepared me really well for caputring the beauty and emotion of a wedding.
