How would you define your style?
My photojournalistic eye heavily influences my style. I enjoy capturing the fleeting moment in time that sometimes goes unseen. Instead of heavily directing your wedding day, I like to record the scenes as they unfold. Most images are taken without intrusion or staging; our formal portrait time is relaxed and fun but I will not leave you without gentle guidance on where and how to stand, but for the most part I want to document your relationship and the interactions between you and your family and friends and to document the love between a husband and wife.
What style albums do you offer?
I offer two specific types of albums. One is a matted album in a wide variety of sizes. This album has a little more of a classic feel.The other is a fine art flush mount album that has a little more of a modern flare. Each album is customized in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Do you offer digital negatives?
Yes, all packages include a disc with all of your edited wedding images.
Do you use a second shooter?
I do have a second photographer at all weddings that I photograph. There is no additional fee for this service.
Do you offer engagements, bridals and day after sessions?
Yes I do offer a variety of sessions that compliment your weddings day coverage. Engagement session are including in some of the packages or can be added a’la carte.
Do you take formals before or after the ceremony?
I do not require that the bride and groom see one another before the ceremony. I believe it is a matter of personal preference and will not pressure you either way. If you do choose to see each other before the ceremony we will set up a special time and private place for you to meet alone (without an audience) to share this time together and be photographed.
Do you take traditionally posed portraits?
Yes I do take formal portraits of your family members and friends. A wedding planning worksheet will be completed by the couple to determine whom they would like photographed during this scheduled time.
When will my photographs be online?
It takes 4-6 weeks for your full digital presentation to be ready online and will remain active for 3 months.
Do you travel?
Yes. I love to travel internationally for weddings as well as locally within the United States. Anything outside of 150 miles will have an additional fee for travel expenses.

My policy requires ½ of your coverage choice to serve as your retainer. The retainer holds the date exclusively for you. Bookings are on a first come first serve basis only. I schedule one wedding per day and can not hold your date without a signed contract and retainer.
