There is no reason why you shouldn't expect the very best. My collections are for the discerning bride and groom, for couples that do not want to compromise and are wanting the most beautiful memories of their wedding that they and their families can cherish forever.
This is the collection for you when you need total peace of mind that every part of your day is covered, or if you have a longer than average wedding day.
Great for shorter weddings or for those that don't need complete coverage. Typical weddings are 8 hours.
This is our most popular collection and will provide complete coverage for a standard wedding day.
All collections come with 2 photographers, a dedicated newlywed photo shoot (8 hour + collections only), all final edited images on Crystal USB drive, print release, online gallery, and digital download access.
My team and I will endeavor to meet your every need, both creatively and professionally and to fulfill every wish and be as helpful as I can to make your day memorable and enjoyable. I will also keep in contact with you up until and after your wedding to ensure that all your questions are answered. I am fluid, active, attentive, and patient, and I can adjust to changing scenarios if need be.
In summary, it’s your day and I will be there for you no matter what.
Having 2 photographers allows me to focus on the bride while a talented second photographer focuses on the groom. This is especially important during the Getting Ready and Ceremony phases of the wedding. As the principal photographer my focus is the bridesecond shooter captures the groom and his groomsmen as they get dressed and prepare for the big day, as well as his reactions and emotions as the bride approaches and during the ceremony. It also minimizes photographer movement during the ceremony and also is great for capturing the emotions of both the bride and the groom from various angles. Last but not least: more photos!
If there are glaring blemishes that are marring the photo I will remove those blemishes on close-up, portrait style photos, to make sure those photos look their best. I can also do more advanced retouching like face and body manipulation using PhotoShop (for example, if you would like your figure slimmed down a touch), however, since that requires expert skill and time I charge separately for that at $100/hour.
Yes! The photos I take are not final until I’ve at least looked at them on my display. From there I may adjust the crop, apply color correction, color boost, or do some Photoshopping to make a photo complete (for example, if I take a beautiful photo of you and the groom but there’s a bird flying in the sky that is distracting, I will remove the bird). You can see examples of my post production process on my Retouching page.
I shoot in a “storybook” or photojournalistic style most of the day, which means most of the photos you receive will be will candid, as-the-moment-happens photos, presented in chronological order as your day unfolds. Most of the daytime photographs will be shot with beautiful natural light (. I also typically conduct a newlywed portrait session when the sky is beautiful. I love incorporating some humor into some of your photos as well; I love taking fun/silly photos of the bride and groom whenever the mood hits.
My portfolio gives you great idea of my style. If you want to see partial galleries (100-125 photos) from a full wedding day then the best place to look is my blog. That range of photos will give you a really good idea of what kind of photos you can expect from me.

"BEST DECISION EVER! Not only did he exceed every expectation I had, he gave us memories that will last for a life time. He truly captured the love and happiness both our families have for each other and of course the happiness my husband and I shared on this day."

"THE MOST incredible photographer I’ve ever dealt with!! He was respectful of the specific photos we wanted but his creative ideas/thoughts were so much more valuable. And he made himself “invisible” at the reception all the while capturing the most intimate of moments & the fun/laughter of everyone."
