What is your style of photography?

I pride myself on being able to capture your special day and the smallest details that come with such a great event. Together we will create a timeline from getting ready to the last dance. I have the responsibility of capturing the memories that will be with you for generations to come. I love taking unique photos that are a little less traditional. I draw on the personality of the bride, groom and family to create a series of photos that will capture the essence of the day.

What is your philosophy towards weddings?

I feel honored to become a part of your wonderful day. My role is to take great photos while you enjoy your day. You have trusted me to capture the moments that make this day so special and I will put those moments into photographs that will be cherished for years to come.

What is your price range of services?

Services start at $2000.

What does this include?

My base package includes 1-2 pre-wedding meetings to talk about the event, a full day of shooting (up to 10 hours), a private web gallery of all the high resolution proofs to share with family and friends, and a DVD of the high resolution images.

Do you shoot with an assistant?

I shoot some events with an assistant but it depends on the size and complexity of the event.

Will you be the one shooting the wedding or do you hire other photographers as well?

I photograph every wedding myself. I spend time getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding day and stay until the event is over.

Do you shoot digitally or with film or both?

I shoot with 2 Pro quality Nikon digital cameras so I spend less time changing lenses and more time focused on the moment.

After the wedding, how long until the proofs are ready?

The proofs will be posted to the web gallery within 2-3 weeks. You can view and share the photos with others. The hardcover book will be ready in about 6 weeks. We collaborate on the book to ensure your favorite memories are included.

What are your custom print prices? Are any prints included with the packages?

The print prices are very reasonable and vary depending on size and finish. I’m of the belief that the client already paid for the service and shouldn’t have to spend significantly more in order to have prints from the event.

Special services offered (optional or included):

Each client has their own private gallery where they can download the high-resolution proofs or share the gallery with others. The client can also order prints directly from the gallery. The client also receives a DVD in the mail with the high-resolution images.

Is there anything else you would like me to know?

I love being a wedding photographer. I have a 65 Five star reviews. I take great pride in the client trusting me to be an essential part of their special day. Take a look at the guestbook in the wedding section of my website to see what clients have had to say about the time we spent getting the best photos possible.

Lets get a cup of coffee and talk about your upcoming wedding; I would love to be a part of it.
