When I started this venture into wedding photography, I had no idea where it was going to take me. 4 years and a whole lot of friendships later, I find myself sitting here in front of my desk, feeling thankful for all the kind and amazing reviews from my couples. This journey of mine hasn’t always been pretty. I sold my only car to buy my first DSLR, no one wanted to work with me and everything I knew about weddings was experienced as a guest. I remember reaching out to other established photographers for mentorship and guidance, but I received no responses. I guess I wasn’t cool enough. I was left with no choice but to figure things out myself. I’m a strong believer that action speaks louder than words and if you want something really bad, you put yourself out there and just do it! I finally had the opportunity to shoot my first wedding of 300 guests and let me tell you, it wasn’t perfect. My direction was pretty weak, I was nervous AF and I really didn’t know what to photograph. It was definitely a learning process, but it set my way into this crazy wedding industry. I owe a large part of my success to my beautiful wife, Cindy. She kept me focused whenever I got lazy and calmed my nerves whenever my skills were tested. I also want to thank all the vendors I’ve had the pleasure in working with. It’s great to feel inspired by all your passions and everyday hustle. These past few years have been a whirlwind for Verstyle Photography and I hope to continue this hard work into the next year and beyond. Chee whoo!
