Wedding Photographer

Wedding Photographer I don’t really think of myself as a wedding photographer, although that is where most of my income comes from. I see myself as a photographer who does weddings. A few years ago, and certainly when I started, that was not unusual. Most photographers who did weddings did other things as well, it…

    Love your work!
