Moment by moment
A marriage is a lifelong commitment, but a wedding day can fly by if you don’t stop to take the time to enjoy every moment. As a photographer, one of the reasons I love weddings is the endless inspiration. The happy couple’s mixed emotions: elation, joy, love and devotion to one another, but also the feelings, interactions and shared moments that happen between friends and family. My photography style combines an artistic eye and a pursuit of truth, so I can capture those emotional and authentic moments, for you, forever.
My story and your story
My fascination with the craft of photography started when I was 10 years old. I am tuned-in to the energy of those around me. The way I see it, the people and the world around us could change at any moment to reveal something extraordinary. I try to be ready to capture that magic. When I started photographing weddings, I realised how carefully you need to observe a couple – the complexity and purity of their feelings and the connection they share.
My role is to record that unfolding story. Every shot, every moment, is important to the story. I kindly ask the couple to forget about me and to just enjoy the day – I’ll make sure to capture everything.
I want the couples, their families and friends to feel like they are the centre of attention. I never impose or get in the way. Many clients have described me as quiet and I’m happy to hear that. As one client, commented, “Tanarak seemed like he wasn’t even at the ceremony – but when we look through the pictures, it seems he was everywhere, he captured so much and recorded every detail and moment.”
