To sum up Jeff's work in one word? Unobtrusive. The dictionary definition is simple and concise; not conspicuous or attracting attention. It sums up his philosophy perfectly. For Jeff, a wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event that should be photographed quietly, sympathetically, and without the photographer dictating what happens in front of the camera. As soon as a photographer engages the subject or directs or controls the event, the wedding becomes the photographer’s idea of what the wedding should look like, rather than what it is. Out of respect for the day, he prefers to record it in such a way as to produce images which are honest and truthful and can be enjoyed for generations to come.
