My goal is to provide you with the best images of you and your loved ones on your wedding day! I utilize traditional wedding photography, fine art, and photojournalism in order to accomplish this! My images are described as light, bright, and sharp.
All of the images you will receive after your wedding are professionally edited, color corrected, and perfected to the highest standards, giving you the highest quality of images possible.
I guarantee that all of my clients will receive a minimum of 50 photos per hour, although many frequently receive more than this! You can rest assured that not a moment of your once in a lifetime day will be missed!
Different couples have different expectations and price points for wedding photography - I create custom packages for each of my clients based on how much they are looking to spend, how many hours of coverage they need, how many photographers they need, and what products and services they are looking to receive! I would be more than happy to discuss pricing with you and create the perfect custom package to suit you both!
Of course! I usually create custom packages that recommend at least one lead photographer and one second-shooter in order to ensure that every angle of your wedding day is captured!
I am an avid traveler and am always excited to explore new locations or revisit ones I am familiar with! Destination weddings are so romantic and are so special to capture, and I would be honored to travel with you to photograph your destination wedding!
Of course! I love having the opportunity to get the happy couple in front of the camera prior to the wedding day! Engagement photos make for great save the dates, thank you cards, and guest albums as well!
I would love to be able to hold your wedding date! I require a signed agreement and deposit in order to reserve the date for your wedding.
I utilize photography equipment that is some of the latest available on the market! I am constantly upgrading my gear to include the best tools available! I shoot with full-frame Canon bodies and a variety of professional grade lenses and lighting tools! My primary goal is to provide you with the highest quality of work possible.
Absolutely! It is important to prepare for the lighting situation at your ceremony and reception venue, and I always make sure to bring equipment suitable for any lighting scenario!
I love photographing using natural and available light and use it as much as possible! When it is not available, however, I am very capable of accommodating low light scenarios and creating my own!
I have plenty more samples that I would be more than happy to share with you, including full galleries (upon request!)
No way! You will be able to download your beautiful high-quality wedding images as soon as you receive your gallery without a watermark!
YES! In addition to day-of wedding photography, offer TONS of additional photography services!

I am always so excited when my clients order tangible products! In this day and age, it is so easy to keep photos on the computer and never look at them again, but tangible products are the simplest way to keep your wedding day alive forever. I offer prints, canvases, framed and mounted pictures, keepsake boxes, albums, parent albums, and guest books! If there are other items that you wish to purchase please inquire and I will make it happen!
