Your wedding is a unique celebration, filled with moments that will never repeat. My passion is to capture those moments in photographs that transport you back to that special time - bringing back the memories and emotions.
I look at each wedding as both a work of art, and a newsworthy event. I look for unique perspectives, focusing on moments that capture both the beauty and drama of the day. I've photographed dozens of weddings, but I'm always amazed at how wonderful and special each one is - rich with emotions and beauty - it never gets old!
My strategy is to be where I need to be, when I need to be there. I do my best to be unintrusive - photography shouldn't interfere with the rest of the day's events, and a good photographer knows how to get excellent photographs without "running the show". But, I also do make sure to get the shots you'll treasure for years to come.
I'll work with you to make a plan for the day, but I know that every plan changes. My ears are one of my most important tools. If you have a special request or suggestion, I'll do whatever I can to make it work.
I know how important and unique your wedding is. I have the experience, knowledge, equipment, and skills you're looking for. To be safe, I also bring back-ups for everything.
I hope you'll take the time to go through my web site, and see some of my sample photos. Feel free to contact me if you have questions - even if you aren't sure what you want. I'm only a click away!
