My Style & Approach:
Collaborator- I work closely with my clients and use my experience to guide them to get the most out of their wedding day or session.
Authentic- I'm an observer who documents events as they unfold.

Do you travel?
Yes, we love to travel! Extra charges may apply depending on distance and other factors.
Are you comfortable working in low light situations?
Yes, most of the reception venues that we work in have sparse lighting. We bring extra lighting to all events and are competent in the use of them.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Canon professional digital cameras, lenses and accessories. We have backup equipment for our backup equipment so be assured that an equipment malfunction will not mean an early end for your wedding pictures.
Do you bring a second photographer?
Most of my packages include a second photographer. There are many benefits to having a second photographer and I will cover those during your consultation.
How much editing is done to the final photographs?
I learned photography shooting film so it's natural for me to get the shot right in camera. Digital and film alike require some color correction. I edit images for natural looking skin tones and colors. I avoid trendy processing. In addition to color correction I edit out small blemishes, soften skin in formal portraits and convert some images to black and white when appropriate.
Do you shoot on the best quality setting on your camera?
Yes, we shoot in RAW format to give you the best image quality available. The final images are ready to print and saved as jpeg files after all edits are complete.
How do I get prints made from the digital files?
All packages that include the digital files include handling instructions for the files as well as a list of resources from which you can purchase affordable, high quality prints.
Do you shoot anything other than weddings?
Yes, I enjoy shooting lifestyle portraits, family sessions, high school seniors and events. I currently do not shoot studio sessions.
Why should I order an album?
Technology is changing rapidly and the longevity of digital files is questionable. It's likely that it will be difficult to access today's media, such a DVD's or thumb drives, easially in the near future. It is my hope that your wedding pictures will be a part of your legacy for future generations. Our albums are not only beautiful but archival, the style and workmanship are designed to stand the test of time.
What do you charge?
We shoot weddings big and small in many price ranges. Rates vary depending on the time of year and location of the wedding as well as other factors. Please complete the contact form and I will be in touch quickly with pricing information. Portrait, engagement and bridal session pricing can be seen by clicking here.
