documentary and discreet
wedding info
First of all, congratulations on your engagement! My goal as a wedding photographer is to provide you with a smooth and enjoyable experience from the pre-planning stage to the delivery of your finished album, and to give you memorable, high quality images that you can treasure for years to come.

My style is documentary and I try to be as unobtrusive as possible while photographing your wedding day. I believe that people photograph best when they are acting naturally and enjoying themselves, and my goal is to capture those candid moments throughout the day in order to tell a complete visual story of your wedding.

While I always seek to be discreet, a minimum of direction is sometimes necessary to achieve the best lighting and effect, and in most weddings we take some time for portraits of the bride and groom alone. Rather than rely on classic poses, however, I take a walk with the couple and photograph them in a more natural setting. 

It's important to me to work with you before the wedding in order to understand your vision for your wedding photography and to take note of your special requests.

An engagement session is a great way to spend some time together before the wedding and get to know each other. You'll also be more relaxed on your wedding day because we'll have worked together before.  

You can be confident in my professionalism and can rest assured that the events and emotions of your day will be documented in my artistic style without you even having to think about it. I hope you will also be pleasantly surprised to receive images of things you hadn't seen or noticed in the excitement of the day.

A wedding is an emotional event and after the wedding many couples  say  it  flew  by  in  a  blur.  That's  why I  think  the
photography is so important. Your finished album is a piece of art that will stay with you for years- long after the cake has been cut and the guests have gone home.


I understand that not every couple is looking for the same type of coverage, and so I offer several wedding packages to fit your needs. Please contact me for more detailed information or to schedule a meeting to get to know each other, talk about the process and the different options available, and see sample albums and printed products. Wedding packages start at 700.
