I BELIEVE IN TELLING LOVE STORIES WITH A 50-YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN MIND.
I believe in love stories like the ones my grandparents wrote by the way they lived and loved: not always pretty or perfect, but full of choosing each other, over and over again.
Fifty years later, their wedding photos have weight to them.
I BELIEVE IN TIMELESS WEDDING PHOTOS.
After photographing more than two hundred weddings, I believe the visual documentation of the day you choose to commit your life to another is meant to be passed down to grandkids, along with stories of two people walking a narrow road together, and loving deeply.
I BELIEVE IN LOVE THAT ENDURES.
Almost a decade in, I believe with all of me that I was meant to do this: to tell stories that are visual reminders of the commitments to love.
Your wedding day will undoubtedly be a picture of heaven.
Your love story is unlike any other.
I would be honored to tell it.
They dream of growing old together.
He knows exactly how to make her laugh.
She loses track of time when he's near.
Grateful by choice, they are cultivators of rich friendships & authenticity.
He is a visioneer and an encourager of her dreams.
She'll take simplicity and the room it gives her to love unchained.
They'll say their vows in a place with history, surrounded by the ones they love most.
Her wedding dress is timeless, and his tux parallels.
He'll toast his bride, and she'll be his...
Always and forever.
They have a love that will endure.
"To say that you captured the day is an understatement. With intricate and perceptive skill, you helped tell a story even larger than ourselves: the sweet, the sentimental, the overlooked and the joyful. Thank you for working tirelessly to understand our vision for the day, and then preserving it in the most delicate, lovely light."
"I just looked through our wedding pictures for the billionth time, and once again, I'm blown away by how awesome you are! Thank you for capturing our day so perfectly. Because of you, I feel like I can relive our day each time I look through the memories you captured. I hope you're wonderful. We sure do miss you!"
"From the moment I saw your work I was blown away by your artistic talent and abilities. I cannot express how grateful I am that you traveled more than six hours to help me capture the wonderful memories created during my wedding. You knew exactly what I envisioned and you captured every detail. Everyone felt at ease with you, and I cannot imagine having anyone else with me that day. My photos are beautiful and every time I look at them I will be reminded about how blessed I was to have had the opportunity to work with you as my photographer. I can honestly say, my wedding was better, and my memories are so perfectly preserved, because of you."
"Words cannot express how beautifully, perfectly and eloquently you captured the happiest day of our lives. In the pictures I've seen of our wedding, I have not stopped being moved to tears--your work is astounding. With love and the deepest of thanks."
"We cannot thank you enough for the effort and love you put into these photos. Your talent is so evident and you told the story of our day with such elegance. We are in love with our photos and will always be thankful that you were our photographer."
"We wanted to thank you for such a beautiful and memorable wedding experience. From the beginning, you completely understood our vision and made us feel right at home. We cannot say enough about how amazing all of your pictures are. You documented the day perfectly and completely exceeded our expectations. And the album is stunning. We loved reliving the whole day!"
WILL YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! Yes and yes. Some of the best weddings I've ever photographed required me to get on a plane...and I would be happy to do the same for you. Of course, if the distance is reasonable, my car and I also have a great relationship.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
I lost count after two hundred. I've got almost a decade of experience in wedding photography and I still can't imagine doing anything else.
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE?
All professional Canon gear.
DO YOU HAVE BACK UP GEAR?
Most definitely. No need to worry, I have a few camera bodies and an arsenal of lenses. And all of your photos are backed up immediately after your wedding.
WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE?
I have that too. If you would like more details, feel free to ask.
HOW LONG IS “FULL DAY” COVERAGE?
I would rather you not have to squeeze your wedding day into a few hours. Your story should be authentic and organic. A "full day" is usually around 10 hours and is typically enough time to start by putting on your dress and end with a getaway car.
DO I HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR MY HIGH RESOLUTION FILES?
They are included in the base package, therefore, they are all yours! You will receive them through your personal online gallery.
CAN I POST MY PICTURES TO FACEBOOK OR INSTAGRAM?
Absolutely. I'd love for you to share. The only rule is that you give photo credit.
ARE YOU AN EASY-GOING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Oh yes! I promise you will feel comfortable and carefree in front of my camera.
WILL YOU TAKE FAMILY PORTRAITS AT OUR WEDDING?
Of course! I actually love family portraits. You and I will work on a list together beforehand to make sure each combination is covered.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU AT THE WEDDING?
While not necessary, a meal or snack is greatly appreciated!
HOW DO WE PAY YOU?
The most popular preference is check, but Paypal is great too.
What is required to reserve my wedding date?
A signed contract along with a deposit of one third of the total. Please remember that dates are limited and are first-come, first-serve.
