Top 10 Best Wedding Photojournalism Images

I love combining light, props, and scenery to construct a perfect image in front of the camera, but my real passion is wedding photojournalism. Its about finding and capturing the emotional moments that people will remember for years. Sometimes with a little luck along with the ability to anticipate when a moment is going to happen, I can pull everything together and end up with an image that is just the right combination of emotion and light. The following images represent some of my favorite moments from my career. They all occurred naturally without any set up or prompting from me.
