I am an experienced and professional wedding, engagement, bridal, and portrait photographer based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I specialize in wedding photography, specifically wedding photojournalism, a documentary style that is candid, fun, relaxed, romantic and inherently artistic. I am a member of The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), and picked 6 years in a row for the Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award.
My style is Wedding photojournalism. I discreetly capture emotions and beautiful moments. I strive to not interfere for the purposes of contriving them. It’s documentary wedding coverage with minimal formal photos.
Virginia Beach Wedding, Engagement, Bridal, and Portrait Photographer – Bill Murray
Skilled wedding photojournalism isn’t simply shooting thousands of photos hoping to “get a good one”. For me, my style of wedding photography requires instinct, anticipation, positioning, lens selection, experience, stealth, compassion and empathy, being able to “see” emotion by “feeling” it. It’s thoroughly understanding wedding photography, wedding photojournalism, light, what my cameras are capable of, what I’m capable of. I’ve been described by many others as “a ninja”. I’ve never worked for the news media (so, I’m not a textbook photojournalist), but my photos have told countless love stories for the couples I’ve had the pleasure to photograph.
Starting in 2014, I am photographing no more than 25 weddings per season. I am looking for couples that are deeply in love. Couples that believe in romance. Couples that place wedding photography VERY HIGH on their list of priorities. I would like you to look at my wedding photography portfolio carefully. I would ask that you be sure that the work I present is how you envision yourself on your wedding day. My style lends itself to more documentary coverage. It’s more like a story, documentary, candid, relaxed, romantic and fun.
