When a couple decides to book me, the first task I have is to understand their unique personality and relationship. Every couple is different. Through discussions and a few image collecting exercises I will work to define the style and expectations of the couple. I will use this information to customize ideas, locations and coverage to fit the style of the couple. Therefore, no two weddings are ever captured in the same manner. Using a blend of photojournalism to capture those once in a lifetime moment and artistically directed shots each couple gets a wholly personalized set of images to reflect their event.
Photojournalism is what many people refer to as "candids". Photojournalism is loved because of its fresh and authentic nature. These are images that are truly in the moment. When I am operating in this mode, I am drawing on my years of experience to anticipate the numerous amazing moments of the wedding day. I use photojournalism throughout the entire event as discussed with the couple. My portfolio of photo journalistic style images can be viewed here.
In order create amazing imagery I ask the couple to gather examples of romantic portraits which inspire them, then we discuss ideas, themes, locations, and other details of the wedding day. From there I setup, build, and create personalized images taking into consideration their style, the locations we are going to on the wedding day. This style pf photography includes lighting design, pre-selected locations, camera effects, and advanced planning. More samples of this style of imagery can be viewed here.

"My now-Husband(!) and I found Gregory on Thumbtack.com. We were immediately impressed with how his images seemed to capture the many feelings of the event without seeming like the subjects were merely moving through a prescribed list of shots, whether posed or not. I really appreciate candid, one-in-a-million shots, and I felt like Gregory managed to capture plenty of those. We both recommend Gregory very highly and will hopefully work with him again should the need arise!"

"Greg did an amazing job with our engagement photos and our wedding photography- I just got married Saturday but know the images will be spectacular. In terms of the actual day- Greg was incredibly prompt and early to each location- which during the course of the day- was actually three locations including handling his second shooter-Mikey who also does a spectacular job. He described poses really well to our whole wedding party, family and us ourselves. He is willing to try anything to get the perfect shot"

"We are so happy we found Gregory to document our wedding day. From the beginning he was always quick to respond and easy to communicate with. Our ceremony and reception were both indoors so we were worried about getting quality pictures in low lighting, but Gregory had the experience and the equipment to light the space and capture every moment perfectly. Even though it was just him, he managed to be everywhere at once and didn't miss a photo opportunity. We'll cherish these photos forever!"

"My husband and I reached out to Greg after viewing his portfolio via The Knot. From first meeting Greg to our wedding day, we knew we chose the best! Greg was so easy to work with, as we asked Greg to include my children in the Engagement Shoot. He has a crisp, beautiful perspective with his sessions. The quality of these pictures are incredible. Greg is a consumate professional. If you are looking for true, unique and refreshing experience, Greg Hitchcock is your photographer"

"We were a bit nervous being photographed in general and he was amazing at putting us at ease and trying to get us to be more natural for the pictures. For the wedding, it seemed like he was in 10 different places at any time. It was not uncommon to see him standing on chairs, crawling on the floor or hanging on pillars to get the perfect angle for each shot all while never taking the guests' attention from the bride and groom. Overall, he took a huge amount of pictures and we were so happy with his work."
