I have been a photographer since 1998, and have been in the professional league since 2004, being published, and photographing companies such as Guess, Dooney & Bourke and Fossil. I am a creative photographer always looking for that special shot to make your wedding photography more unique; other than someone who knows how to use a camera, and just takes simple pictures.
I consider myself more of an artistic photographer. The way I like to take photos I visualize someone looking at as a peace of art, other than a simple wedding photograph. I incorporate artistic photography along with photojournalism to make creative images, and to tell a story of your day.
It is best to inquire and book as soon as possible in order to secure your date. I have appointments that have been reserved almost up to 2 years. However if your wedding is near, please inquire, I may have that date available.
Yes, I offer revolving discounts, offset by the amount of business.
I offer several albums, please refer to my commission page for more details. to get more information on the specifics of the albums click on the green title, (pop-ups must be activated)
An art portfolio is a professionally printed book. Each photo created by me as an artistic photographer from your wedding. This book is similar to your album, but has hand-selected images by the photographer, and is printed as art. This book has 20 or more pages with each photo hand edited, and hand signed by the photographer. Each copy of the book has a print number and the master copy of the book is destroyed after the print has taken place
I offer standard, high quality photographic paper prints.
High gloss metallic prints, which give a bright shine to bring out light colors. This is a favored print that is not offered by most photographers. (I personally have all of my prints on this paper) Finishing services are available as well.
Traditional wrapped canvas prints of assorted sizes.
Fine art canvas prints that is printed directly on the canvas. Fine art canvas prints are not prints bonded or mounted on a canvas.
A print as you wish CD is a CD that you can take and have prints printed at your local photo labs. They are top quality and allow you versatility to print as much as you want or as little as you want. It is a key component for a budget minded individual for couples that either have little time to select, and wait for expensive images to come from my photo lab, or for someone that doesn’t want to go back to the photographer years down the road to get more prints made up.
Yes, commissions can be customized. I have set my prices so you can purchase the things that you want, and not have to pay for the things you do not want.
My photography time is charged for the photography itself, post processing on all of the images, and image retouching on large prints. Processing contact/proof sheets of all of the images are included in this cost.
Yes my services are national and internationally. Please inquire for fees
I use multiple high end Canon Digital SLR bodies, a wide range of fast professional lenses, professional lighting, to achieve the perfect look at the right moment. I use wide angle, and have telephoto lenses for needed distant shots. I also use a camera that is ultra quiet, so there is no excessive noise during the ceremony.
My second photographer is my extra arms, legs, eyes, and feet. Having sheer professionalism while being my assistant, and getting those extra shots that one photographer is unable to achieve.
This is your day. We are professionally dressed, and hold the up most respect to you and your guest. We are not paparazzi, we are professional photographers in every manner.
Of course I allow it! in fact the photography lover in me encourages it! With you choosing me to be your wedding photographer you have already showed me that you put your trust in me to get a professional job done
This all depends on how many images that have been taken. I usually try to target a finished CD within 2 weeks. Wedding albums and other prints may take longer.
I accept cash, check, and credit card. Checks are only accepted 2 weeks before the wedding. And I require a 50% deposit to secure the wedding date.
