What makes the difference in a wedding photographer, is experience. You simply can’t place value on an experienced professional. During a wedding, a photographer needs to know what will happen before it does, anticipate moments, be flexible on the spot, stay calm, be a fly on the wall, help people feel comfortable in front of the camera, know how to schedule your day of timeline and be able to conquer any lighting condition. It’s tricky in Colorado with the bright sun at a high elevation and even more so in the winter with the snow. This is what I love about being a Telluride wedding photographer. There is so much that goes into photographing a wedding. The industry standard is roughly over 100 weddings to acquire these skills and intuitions. Of course that only gets better with time! After 15 years of documenting love and relationships, this is what keeps me coming back. With over 300 weddings under my belt, have I mentioned that I love what I do?
