Maggie Blice and Derek Mason

I will photograph at Walnut Creek several times a year. I like the people who own it and run it. Walnut Creek treats their customers well, unlike some chapels I have photographed in.

I will often tell people that weddings are combination of the created and the captured. The image on the right, taken by my assistant Andrea, is very captured – just a spontaneous moment with the flower girls. The image on the right is created – the bride and the groom didn’t just happen to be in that spot posed that way. “Wedding Photojournalism” is nice, but it only captures. Some images must be created to illustrate the emotion of the day.
