This is an excellent question because there are so many amazing photographers putting out beautiful work every day. I would say what makes me different is my willingness to do whatever if takes to not only get the "the shot" but to make the experience of getting the shot an enjoyable one. I have found that many people don't feel comfortable or enjoy having their photo taken. It can often be an awkward experience, but through conversation and humor I have my subjects often forget they're being photographed. By providing the right environment they are able to relax, be in the moment, and trust that their memories are being captured. Your wedding day is a celebration. It should be fun and spent with people you love and want to be around. It is so very important for you to like and trust the people you hire to photograph your wedding day. You will spend more time with your photographer, videographer, and planner than any other vendor that day. So choose people you like and that you can relate to. It is also important to select a photographer that creates photos in the style that you like. This may sound obvious but consider how you would like your photos to look when all is said and done. Are you drawn toward light whimsical images, bright colorful photos, a more classic or timeless style, or maybe you prefer darker moodier imagery? It is completely a personal preference similar to selecting a restaurant for dinner. You would not choose an Italian restaurant and expect them to serve the best Sushi. So select a photographer whose style excites you and whose portfolio you already love.
I started assisting a professional photographer when I was 14 here in Key West. I studied photography throughout high school and college. I have 2 degrees in photography related fields from a private Florida university. After college I assisted and second shot for many pro photographers before founding Blueye Images in 2004. As a professional photographer I have continued my education by attending numerous conventions and workshops hosted by pro organizations such as Professional Photographers of America and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. I am dedicated to honing my craft and staying up to date on the latest techniques, practices, and ever changing technologies.
