Something different

There are a lot of photographers out there, so many that it can be overwhelming. What you'll notice about DMP is that we're consistently good and, well, different. For 10 years now, we've been specializing in photojournalistic wedding photography, starting back when nobody else was doing it. That means we're way ahead of the pack.

Now that everyone at every price point is claiming to be a photojournalist, you just need to look past the marketing and see the differences. Some are huge, some are subtle.

With every Decisive Moment package, we include an engagement session. We do these downtown, in and around our historic building where we work every day, not just a place where we come for a suburbanite field trip. We work with each couple and take the time to let people be their real selves, instead of putting them in the same poses as everyone else.

We look at our surroundings with fresh eyes and do something different every day. We are often imitated, but we don't let it get us down. A photographer who copies someone else's ideas never really owns anything. One who comes up with original ideas, though, never runs out of new ones.

In 1998, we started using the tagline A Different Kind of Wedding Photography, and that holds true today.

Here are a few of Sarah and Jason's engagement photos, shot by Joe. My favorites are in the elevator.
