About Me

Timeless Wedding Photography

Natural, available light

“To take a photograph means to recognize — simultaneously and within a fraction of a second — both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis.”  Henri Cartier-Bresson, The Mind’s Eye: Writings on Photography and Photographers

About Me

Photography freezes time, and captures the moments happening at that time forever. There is something magical about that. Each photograph communicates a story, and this is especially true with wedding photography. Sometimes you can tell a story with a single image, such as a loving embrace, or a kiss. Sometimes you tell a story with a series of images, such as the bride getting ready. The amazing thing for me is that every wedding story is completely different. What is important for you is to know that the style of wedding photography determines how the story is told.

My approach is almost exclusively photojournalistic. I am documenting what is happening in front me without interfering or instructing. I also rarely use flash, preferring to use the ambient light of a setting without invading or changing the mood. I use whatever light is available to me creatively. I then try to anticipate and capture moments in interesting and moving ways so that every wedding is special and different from any other.

Collections start at $3,200, which includes 8 hours of coverage by me, 6 hours of coverage by a second shooter, wedding day digital files with private printing rights, and an online gallery you can share with family and friends. You can further customize your coverage by adding an engagement session, additional time on your wedding day, coverage of the rehearsal and dinner, a post-wedding photo session, and a wedding album. My wedding albums are hand-made in Italy using only the finest materials and come with a lifetime guarantee for the workmanship.

I am in the Boston area but am willing and able to travel to your wedding if you are planning a "destination" event, or just prefer my style over the local photographers in your area. If you are interested in my style of photography then please feel free to complete the contact form or email me at rjreade@mac.com.

Wherever there is light, one can photograph.
