Life, especially weddings, move so fast. Photos secure the memory of this time in your life. I tend to think beyond six months after the wedding. When you are tired, in the minute consumed, or going through a rough patch. I can bring you back through my work to the wedding day. Back to that moment and that emotion through a visual journal. How you felt the moment the photo was created is why it is so important to feel comfortable with your photographer.
You have begun the planning process and arrived at booking one of the most important vendors: the photographer. I understand how important this decision is for you. Photography is one of the few elements of your wedding that is meant to live on for generations. Behind all the fun and laughter we will have together, I hold the gravity of my work very seriously. I will provide referrals, suggestions, and timelines during the planning process. On the wedding day, I will give posing prompts when needed. Otherwise you won’t experience too much influence from me so I can also capture those candid moments.
Depending on travel time and pre-ceremony portraits, I typically start 2 hours before the ceremony. The excitement and anticipation at this moment of the wedding day is one of my favorites. I prefer working with a second photographer so we can capture each partner simultaneously.
Down time 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start time is crucial. This gives you time to center and prepare for the awesome event that is about to happen. Many guests tend to arrive early as well so this way they won’t see you before the ceremony.
After the ceremony and portraits, it’s time to party! I love the high energy of wedding receptions. If the sunset happens to be during your reception, I will sneak the two of you outside for a few romantic photos. It is up to you if you want coverage until after the cake cutting or until the big send off.
I encourage most couples to have coverage by me, plus a second photographer and an album. I have based my packages on these recommendations.

Yes, you can create a favorites list from the gallery and I will design a first draft for your approval. Changes can always be made before it goes to print.
All photographs are captured in color and I convert some to black & white based on my artistic vision. I can always send you the color version as well!
I will send you a few previews a day or so after the wedding and the full gallery will be posted 3 weeks after the wedding.
The majority of times, the answer is yes. If you are having a large wedding, if both partners are getting ready at different locations, and if you want more coverage I strongly encourage having a colleague with me. However, there are several occasions where the wedding is small or the couple is getting ready together where another photographer could be intrusive.
I am very much a stylistic mix of photojournalism and traditional photography with a Fine Art flair. The wedding day is a mix of real emotion, posed family portraits, artistic couple frames that many different styles and techniques are implemented throughout the day. That is why I love weddings!
