The photographs of your wedding day are the most important to remember one of the happiest days of you life, this is a time when you cannot take any chances with
your photographer, because is not second opportunity for the pictures. The local photographer makes sense for no other reason than the familiarity with St Maarten
which means you have the opportunity for the best pictures.
I have 23 years of photographic experience not only in S t Maarten, I was in many countries and continents : North America, Saud America, Europe, Caribbean
Islands and Hong Kong.
I like in particular the documentary photojournalism style to capture the moments, expressions with an unobtrusive presence; my photography between weddings and
fashion become the blend of fine art, funny,funky, something different : the best is to read what the couples said in testimonials to have a complete idea.
True all this years I learn the great photography just doesn't happen by hiring a photographer and take a thousand of digital photos, the key is that good
communication allows you both become comfortable in front of the camera and the photographer.
