PHILOSOPHY
 
 
 
 
After the music stops, the food has been eaten, the guests go home, the flowers wilt, and the dress is preserved away, only two things endure. 

Make them both beautiful.

 
 

I capture your day in such a way that immediately transports you back to the feelings of joy and anticipation when you and your loved ones look back at your portraits many years from now.  From the big first kiss to a fleeting tiny glance, together, we'll craft a story of your day that is rich and nuanced. 

My work is a blend of studio and environmental, color and black & white, formal portraiture, candid lifestyle, and documentary photojournalism.  Using primarily digital and just a bit of old-school film, with your choice of me as your sole photographer or the addition of my photographic team, we'll capture every meanningful detail of your day.

I hand edit each and every finished image -- never shipping out to an impersonal bulk editing farm -- allowing for full artistry and customization of every frinished piece.  I'll bring images to life wih my my distinct, timeless style, through pristine albums, canvases, and gift presentations.

Because each client comes to us with different desires and needs, we do not limit you to our expectations of what you might want, but rather we create a custom quote for you.  All of our product and services are offered à la carte to allow the greatest flexibility in your experience and finished design.

The first step to working together is an in-person (or virtual) conversation
and a custom quote.   Be in touch so we can learn more about one other.

 
 
 
 
 
 


ALL WEDDING EXPERIENCES INCLUDE :

eight hours wedding day coverage
high-resolution digital archive files
password-protected online gallery
cloud backup for one year

     
     
 
 
ALBUMS & PRESENTATION
 
 
 
 
It is my hope that you will commemorate your day with a collection that includes a wall portrait for everyday enjoyment as well as a storytelling archival printed piece such as an album or box set. 

I've worked over many years to curate the the most high-quality, bespoke photographic products that are sure to thrill and delight for years to come.

My streamlined wedding photography offerings includes three album styles, a unique matted print box set, a full set of print proofs in a custom display box, and custom-framed canvas.

All finished presentation pieces include a lifetime quality guarantee.  All custom-framed canvases include [local] in-home installation.
 
 
 
 
INVESTMENT
 
 
 
 
So that I may commit my highest level of time and attention to every client,
I limit bookings to 20 wedding commissions per year.

All weddings include eight hours of photography, high-resolution digitial archive files with full artistry and permission to print, a password-protected online gallery for viewing and print ordering for family and friends, and one-year cloud backup.  Optional additional hours of coverage, a second photographer, engagement session, bridal portrait, and more are available.

We offer premium presentation products, including three album styles, archive print sets, and custom-framed canvas.

Because every client presents unique needs and preferences, we don't offer "one-size-fits-all" packages or collections.  We offer all services and products à la carte.  We'll meet,  ask thoughtful questions, and take notice of your specific preferences and needs to prepare a quote and custom experience for you.

Weddings investments begin at 5250.
 
 
 
 
 
TRAVEL
 
 
 
 
Having lived, worked, and traveled throughout the world, I've developed a true wanderlust and love to experience the world.  I plan my bookings to allow time and energy for destination commissions, including multi-day events abroad.  I welcome the opportunity to document your celebration anywhere in the world.
