Journalistic with added dimensions in artistic composition and classic portraiture. I am unobtrusive and focus on artistically capturing the emotional story of your wedding day.
Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography. A favorite is a wedding where the bride and groom want to artistically capture the story of their special day. Another favorite is a creative portrait of a romantic couple or a portrait of a family story.
I love what I do! My mission is to capture loving moments in sophisticated art. Plus, while I have over 40 years of in-depth study and photography experience, it is my full-time work in photography during the last 10 years that sets me apart as a photographer. I'm constantly pushing myself to improve.
My home offices are in North Wales and Jim Thorpe, and my service is centered in Bucks County, PA. This area in Southeastern Pennsylvania is convenient to locations such as Allentown, Doylestown, Bethlehem, The Poconos, Reading, Lancaster, Pottstown, New Hope, Philadelphia PA, and many more. A two hour drive is normal for my weddings.
Yes, you will meet with me from our very first meeting. And you will work with me from start to finish. Personal rapport and communication with your photographer makes a huge difference in your photography and in your special day. You will have my personal cell-phone number and will not be distracted by sales planners, telemarketers, photo-consultants, or office staff.
Only one - exclusively yours. This enables me to arrive early, to get mentally centered, and to be free of time pressure. This also provides you with greater flexibility in planning your wedding day. Want to change your starting time? No problem.
Yes. I will be your photographer at your wedding.
I began capturing 'friend and family' weddings and portraits on a weekend basis during the early 1980's. Photography became my full time and only career in May 2005.
Yes. BecauseYouLove.com is my website, and it only displays photographs that were captured personally by Robert Winton. The images are all from real weddings and portraits, and real people, not professional models!
Yes. My gallery of journalistic wedding photography features images from weddings.
In about one week your beautiful on-line gallery will feature selected images from your wedding or portrait session. You could visit it from an internet cafe anywhere in the world. Too busy after your honeymoon to email images to your family and friends? Then simply email them a link to your gallery!
Yes. You will receive the complete collection of the original full-size digital jpg images from the camera. They are gently and individually hand optimized for brightness, color and clarity. They remain full-size as captured in the camera and in the original colors so that you will enjoy the maximum creative potential of every image for the future. You will have rights to keep and print all of your wedding photography images for your personal use. I call them hostage free!
Yes, in about 2 weeks after your wedding.
Yes. Every Artistically Enhanced image begins with the original camera image. A multi-step process is used to bring out the subtle differences in fine shades and variations inside your image. Additional special effects, such as black/white, sepia, spot-color and much more, may be used to express a nuance in expression. Finally this artistically enhanced image is developed onto real photographic paper from a photographic enlargement process (not ink jet). Your Artistically Enhanced Print is a rich heirloom that deserves to be held and displayed in your new home!
Yes. Our work together continues into Robert's Signature Design of your Journalistic Storybook album. You will be invited to select your favorite images for your album. You will see your creative artistic design transpire from start to finish! You will have input in every stage of the process as your custom album takes shape.
Sorry, no. They feature proprietary methods that will be used to create your photography art for you and your family to hold -- if that's your wish.
Professional level Nikon digital SLR cameras, lenses, and lighting: like those you often see used by magazine photo-journalists. My cameras are light, unobtrusive and quick. My professional lenses are superior to consumer lenses.
Yes. I actually enjoy the interaction with guest photographers. But you will want to manage their number and behavior ... they often invent surprising ways to intrude into moments and lighting!
Digital. I have 40+ years of total photography experience, and began capturing my first part-time 'weekend weddings' about 30 years ago. So, long ago, I captured weddings on film. I transitioned from film to digital during the year 2006. Today is all digital.
Yes. My philosophy and urgency of caring for fragile photography film and cameras still seems relevant to digital in many ways. I have three or more of all important equipment. All of my cameras capture images simultaneously to two different memory cards for added reliability. Back at the office, multiple image backups are made with sophisticated error checking software, and secured inside a heavy floor safe. Each of your priceless digital image is cared for from the moment when it is captured inside the camera lens to when it safely arrives in your hands.
