Goth Wedding

Bill + Samantha - Arkansas Wedding Photography

Some of you may remember Bill & Sam's engagement photos we did in a junkyard here in Little Rock. I have to say, I don't photograph a lot of couples in salvage yards, but for Bill & Sam this was exactly what they were looking for. I can't tell you how many people came up to me at their wedding and complimented me on the engagements. The people who knew them best, could see that those photos were perfect for Bill & Sam. My goal as a photographer is to blend my personal style with the unique personality of each couple that I photograph. I never want to find myself in a system of just simply producing, without my subject as the center focus. I once read a quote from some great photographer, who I can't remember his name, but I'll never forget what he said. He said "People photography... is about people". It doesn't matter how technically accurate I am or what cool new effects I can do, if my photography doesn't reflect the people that I'm photographing then the photo it loses it core. Sometimes I forget about this, and it's always nice to remind myself. Sorry for that short rant. Congrats to the newlyweds! Here are a few photos from their big day! Also I wanted to send a shout out to my boy Allen Hyslip for second shooting this super cool wedding with me!Sam & Bill first met each other at a Starbucks. That one unique brand of java brought these two people together and led to this day. Kinda a cool idea if you think about it and not a bad commercial ad for Starbucks. Before the wedding Sam and her girls decided stop by for some drinks and good times and because it was Sam's big day, her coffee was on the house.
