Greetings, I'm Larry
The phrase “beauty… as it occurs naturally” has come to define my view as a professional photographer and as a human being. I see my work as one that looks for and captures the beautiful moments that arise in every aspect of life. The celebration of the union of two people in marriage is full of this naturally occurring imagery.
LARRY'S TOP TIPS
How to choose your
Choose the photographers to interview by the photos they produce. You will find a wide range of descriptive terms attached to today’s wedding photography. For example: documentary, traditional, photojournalistic, contemporary are all terms used to describe style and approach.
We are all unique individuals and as humans we get along better with certain types of people. When you interview photographers ask yourself a few basic questions about about your experience. Most importantly: Was I comfortable in the presence of this person?
To be an excellent wedding photographer takes a tremendous amount of technical and personal skills . Skills that are learned from both formal education and real time experience. Keep in mind that not all wedding photographers do this professionally. Buyer beware.

What I'm Offering
I am is a self confessed ‘moment junkie’ – a lover of the naturally occurring moments of life, both beautiful and poignant. My work is defined by a unique mix of photojournalism and scenic portraiture.
I have 25 years of diverse professional photographic experience which brings substantial depth and insight to my images.
I personally design my clients albums. I don’t send my images off into the hands of an album builder. This allows me to share the amazing moments that I witnessed and the images I captured on your wedding day. These are authentic albums… ‘one offs’ if you will, designed around the events of your wedding day. It is your personal story, the story of your life in the making.
I love finding remarkable images and creating remarkable books! For years I photographed weddings and presented hundreds of small proof prints that in most cases ended up in a box on the shelf. Now, I highly encourage couples to give serious consideration to an album that begs to be left on the coffee table and enjoyed again and again.
