When photographing weddings or events it is very important to capture detail shots. Some photographers focus on these more than others and that's ok.
To me I think about it this way "if they paid for it, photograph it".
Big events are very expensive and all the details to get to look and feel like an important event costs money. Everything from the plates to the dresses to the flowers.
Detail photos just add to the story of the day.
Because I started out doing mostly macro photography I bring that element into my style of photography. I enjoy getting in close and isolating the details.
I try to get different perspectives and show you what I saw on that day.
Beauty is in the details.
