North Carolina Wedding Photographer R.D. Decker

WedFog - Tell us a bit about yourself.

Bob - Young dude trapped in an old geezer's body. I spent a number of years teaching SCUBA, which is the vocation that led me to the East Coast.


WedFog - Tell us how you got started with wedding photography.

Bob - My name kind of says it all, doesn't it. After all, you hear about "Uncle Bob" all the time. Actually I was bitten by the photo bug at about 8 years of age and was a serious amateur for many, many years. I shot a few weddings for my girlfriend's/future wife's family and friends. Frankly I hated it. I was constantly worried about whether the film advanced properly, did I expose correctly plus many other concerns. Years later, after moving to the coast and as I was first beginning to play with digital photography, a friend managed to convince me to shoot his wedding. The ability to "chimp" alleviated all my fears from the film days. While I shot that event with both film and digital capture I didn't even bother to develop the film for a couple years after the wedding. I had fun and found a great outlet for the creative photographer in me.


WedFog - If we were hiring a wedding photographer today, why would we hire you?

Bob - I have enough experience to insure solid images, have a work ethic that ensures my reliability and I am properly licensed and insured as any reputable professional should be. I combine a documentary approach with fashion-editorial lighting and portraiture techniques to create images that are fresh, modern and fun.


WedFog - What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?

Bob - I truely love the entire day. During the typical event I get to play photojournalist, still life/food photographer and portrait artist. It's great to have a little variety in your work day. But if I have to choose a favorite part I think it has to be the short period alone with the bride and groom that I get to create romantic portraits. It's during that segment of the day that I get to direct a bit, pose a bit, and apply my knowledge of creative lighting techniques to make images that "Aunt Robin" and "Uncle Rob" can only dream of pulling off. It's such a rewarding feeling when you know you've capture that perfect portrait of the couple.

WedFog - Care to share some of your favorite photos with us?

Bob -"Brooke" against what appears to be a white-hot background. The image was actually shot with her standing in front of a window covered with white mini-blinds. When I saw the bright sunlight coming through the window I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

 I love the colors and feel of this image.  A beautiful bride, a handsome groom and a gorgeous afternoon on the beach.  It all came together in this romantic moment.
