Wedding photography is an investment that lasts a whole lot longer than the dress and tuxedo, the cake and the catering. And since memory is also fleeting no matter how indelible the moment may be, it's important to choose a photographer who jives with your sense of style and vision.
Photographs have an odd way of working under and around the actual memory itself. And of course it is primed from different perspectives and point of views. I like to think of myself as an observer with a keen eye for detail, lighting, narrative moments, and composition—to name a few.
My goals are many, but in the main I want to be sure I capture the personality of the whole wedding and in particular the love that permeate what can only be called the most profound party of your life. While I'm working the wedding, I reach a state of flow, perceptively sensitive to events that will tell a good story and become a historical record of a very special time in your lives.
And as a photojournalist and writer I am deeply aware of the narrative, drawn to candid moments that are honest and truthful, beautiful, and authentic.
All to say I don’t Shoot your wedding like a deer hunter, but rather Make photographs, rendering your blessed day into a distinctive vision.
My main package includes a casual pre-wedding photo session, candid photos of the guests before, during, and after the ceremony, bride and groom readying themselves, the ceremony itself, formals of relatives and friends, reception, dances, and honeymoon exit. I'm there from the start of the day until the end. I also like to gather everyone in a long line and photograph the guests in small groups, which I later stitch together so that you always have a record of those who attended.
Packages include a rights-free thumb drive of the images including smaller jpg’s for Online use and large print-ready images, a gallery on this website for easy downloading and printing, a slideshow set to two of your favorite songs, and a 80-100 page wedding book designed and laid out. Fifty percent of the package is required up-front to book me and the other 50 percent upon receiving the images. See more info about the package in pricing details.
