All about 3B Photography

What inspired you to start your business?

I’ve always been drawn to narratives that surround every day life and popular culture, that’s why I pursued an undergrad in Journalism. After working as a photojournalist for several years I quickly realized I had a leaning towards documentary photography. where the projects and assignments tend to be more long-term and complex.

What do you love about weddings?

Something that has always fascinated me by weddings is how many fleeting moments are occurring within the timeline of the day. As the photographer I get a unique and beautiful insight into an intimate moment in people's lives which unveils potential to create meaningful art and memories for those involved.

What sets you apart from everyone else?

Analog film has always been a cornerstone of my photographic process. The aesthetic and natural palettes of analog combined with the texture of real grain create a nostalgic element in the photographs. When I use these tools it allows me to slow down and get emotionally invested in what I'm photographing. This has been key for me to in building trust with the couples I work with in order to create natural images where they feel like their true selves.

How would you describe your style?

My photographs have an editorial approach with a cinematic edge. My use of analog film allows for a natural but stylized aesthetic. My photography style is a combination of all my personal influences in music, cinema and life.

Do you have any interesting facts we can share?

I'm starting to offer wedding films shot on Super 8mm film. I've always loved looking at childhood videos with my family on the projector. I decided to bring that feeling and nostalgia to the couples I work with so they can relive the highlights of their wedding day.
