Weddings

What makes you unique or why should we hire you?

Because I want to make you cry. Hear me out. There is nothing I want more than to have you and your partner looking at the wedding photos I created for you in ten, twenty, or fifty years, and bring actual tears to your eyes because you love them so much. More than anything else, creating something for you both to cherish for decades to come is why I do this. I guess the other things you should consider are my decades of experience, hundreds of happy clients, and my dedication to great customer service.

How would you describe your photography style?

I personally love candid and photo journalistic wedding photography. Photographing people when they are feeling relaxed and unaware of the camera is one of my favorite things. You can see examples in my Moments Portfolio. I also understand that formal portraits are an important part of every wedding. Those portraits are so important when you are looking at the photos decades from now, especially if some of those people are no longer with us. Lastly, I like to dedicate a little time at each wedding to photographing the couple in more creative and artistic ways. Check out my style portfolio to see some examples. If I had to sum it all up, it would be that my goal is to create timeless images for you and your family to appreciate for generations.

What happens if you are sick?
