About Visual Storytelling

Style | Approach

Visual storytelling is the art of using photography with design to create a memorable product.

By photographing with the design of the StoryBook in mind allows me to maintain a visual consistency to the narrative of the day. 

We do considerable planning together before the wedding to create a photographic timeline to provide peace of mind.

This insures that I am aware of the details that matter, the important relationships and the family dynamics.

By creating a photo timeline that is flexible and stress free, will allow you to just be yourselves and in the moment on your wedding day.

Please Consider Less = More

Wedding photography in this digital age has changed how we view and experience images.

The quantity of photos delivered seem to be valued more than the quality of the photos themselves.

My philosophy is : Less = More + Value

My wedding couples appreciate that less is more and prefer the value of a printed StoryBook of artistically enhanced images.

All wedding photographers provide images of beauty and nostalgia but they lack the emotional end product of the visual storytelling approach.

The process of selecting and editing thousands of delivered images can be overwhelming and frustrating to a newly married couple.

As a result, most wedding photos are seen on a computer screen and then languish on a hard drive or in a drawer.

In contrast, I deliver fewer but more exceptional finished images, that really matter to you, in a StoryBook. 

About Peter

Visual Storyteller

“I use my mind and heart to become an eyewitness to your wedding day”.

Portrait of Peter Silvia Newport RI Wedding Photographer

The feelings expressed through my imagery is the result of my connection with a couple and their story.

As a couple you work hard to put together the best quality vendors that fit together as a team to create a special event.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to have built solid relationships with many wedding industry professionals.

I have collaborated with wedding planners, event designers and florists and many of Newport’s famous venues have me on their preferred vendor lists.

I prefer using available light to create a cinematic mood and feeling with color along with my classic B+W imagery.

I approach the day in a calm unobtrusive manner so you can relax and enjoy your wedding day.

Having a background in design allows me to tell your your story with a printed StoryBook.
