So if you've been clicking around my website for a while, you might be starting to wonder about the difference between most of these wedding galleries and portfolios. A LOT of them show candid moments, but I seem to be calling them different things. Why is that? Well... different people call this style by different things. Having been a working photojournalist at newspapers for the first 10 years of my career, I prefer to call candid style photography "wedding photojournalism". This refers to capturing moments as they happen. Fleeting expressions, situations that are unfolding and seeing and documenting those things that happen in a blink of an eye. Most people even standing nearby miss these moments that flash by in a millisecond. Personally, I thing all these tiny things are what showcase the personalities, the flavor of the wedding day and all the bits that make a wedding day so very unique to each couple.

Thanks for looking through my wedding photojournalism portfolio and hope you'll check out more galleries while you're here.
