The Wedding Experience

I specialize in weddings because I LOVE to make images that will hang on walls for 50 years.  Pictures that become family heirlooms.    I love capturing REAL moments as they happen more than anything, not only do I specialize in weddings but I specialize in a very specific story-telling style of photography at weddings.  It’s a nice blend of closeup details, real moments, and a very light dusting of timeless portraiture.    I believe this type of photography makes a beautiful wedding album and so I’ve designed my service to provide this by including everything you need.

Full Event Coverage

Early in the planning process most couples don’t know how much coverage they will need.  Eliminating the worry and fear around budgeting time creates a better wedding experience.  That means better photos.

High Resolution Digital Photos

You have the right to print your photos with anyone you want and it’s my goal to provide you with better options than public print labs already available to everyone.  You get the rights to all your images after the wedding and I provide you with a really high quality print lab and often times I can get canvas prints at a better price than most consumers because of the volume of business we deal with.

An Engagement Session

The engagement session is the perfect opportunity to break the ice and get to know your photographer.  The wedding photos are so much easier if we  already know exactly what your favorite poses are and what angles flatter your body the most.

Perfect when we want to get the grooms face and the bride coming down the aisle at the same time.

Wedding Album

We believe your wedding story isn’t complete without a beautiful wedding album and your wedding album is your first family heirloom.  I have a very less is more approach to design that my clients love.  All of our albums feature a leather cover and 30 page lay flat design.  You can also order parent albums and engagement guestbooks we use the same high quality albums.

Our full service with albums starts at $3000.

If you have a larger budget you can include parent albums, guestbooks, and videography.

For smaller weddings we offer payment plans and customized the services without printed products.  We usually offer these when we have gaps in our schedule and then you can purchase an album at a later date.
