Growing up in a family that owned and operated a wedding reception center, I was fascinated with the many details and much splendor that went into this exciting celebration of two people. And from my career as a portrait photographer I have carried over a lot of these feelings into my uniquely sensitive style of wedding photography.

My approach is very discreet. Rather than rigidly posing each photograph, I intuitively capture the natural spontaneous moments as they unfold. Not directing or orchestrating, just sensitively documenting the day as it happens.

Prior to the wedding I always scout locations to prepare for every situation. With this in mind, in the more formal photographs when family and friends gather to be photographed with the bride and groom, I would already have a suitable location in mind before the wedding day.

Following the wedding the images are securely posted online where they are available for viewing and purchase by family and friends. Once the bride and groom make their selections for their bridal album, I then carefully by hand assemble the album and arrange the photographs to relate the story of the wedding in a custom leather bound bridal album.

I treat it as an honor to photograph such an emotional and significant day in a bride and groom's life. I love more than anything in the world to photograph people, and this is reflected in my images.

I appreciate your consideration and look forward to the opportunity to be part of your wedding day and its memories.

Warmest regards,
Simone Kopkas
