WHY I DO WHAT I DO...

I'm a Wedding Photographer/Artist. And this is my passion. There are three (3) primary things that compel me as I shoot:

  1. the moments
  2. the memories and
  3. the magic

THE MOMENTS

At each wedding [every wedding] there are “those” moments that occur. From a moment that's tender with tears; from laughter to love; from solitude to celebration, it's these moments that justify my presence. Capturing that instance (sometimes not knowing until way later that you did) is still exhilarating and becomes a pleasant surprise for my couples. Like when the Preacher says something that only the three of them can hear...

THE MEMORIES

Memories. Recorded and captured memories are my addiction. I hunt for them. I lie in wait for an opportunity to pull the trigger knowing that this photograph will be a Treasure. As an Artist you live for that one piece to grace your imagination. As an Artistic Wedding Photographer you develop a sense for the timing of the next movement that may be an uneventful gesture that you make an unforgettable memory. Like the mother of the Bride putting on the Bride the "borrowed" Pearl neclace...

THE MAGIC

And then there is the invisible: the magic. As a passionate Wedding Photographer, instinct kicks in to afford you the opportunity to witness and record magic. That captured milli-second that draws you into a photograph with sincere questions: “I wonder what was so funny”. You want to be in on the story. It is the digital time machine that serves only the subjects involved and everyone else is left wondering “what was that about?".  For instance, when these two found something absolutely hilarious (not to mention that this is the way they are all the time!)...

The moments, memories and the magic are my motivators. These are the rare occurrences that I look for and search for and document for my couples.

If you're a Bride, email (rdenniscrawford@yahoo.com) or call me (909) 567-0284 and let's discuss your Big Day! I would enjoy an opportunity to document your wedding. Also, take a moment and share this with your friends and family.
