Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I'm honored you're considering me as your photographer. I know planning a wedding and choosing wedding professionals can be both exciting and overwhelming. With all the photographers out there, I know it can be tricky figuring out which one will be the best fit for YOU.
In the 27 years I've been photographing weddings, a lot of couples have told me how afraid they were that they wouldn't pick the right photographer. They were worried they wouldn't get the unique, personalized style they wanted, they'd miss out on important shots, and they'd be stressed-out dealing with bossy or unprofessional ego-maniacs.
After all, there's only one chance to get your wedding photography right. You want to make sure you're capturing all the special memories of one of the most important days of your life. You also want to have fun and enjoy the process, knowing you can trust your photographer to get all the important shots and take care of the direction and details so you can relax. It's a big decision, and I'm here to help.
Following is an overview of who I am and my wedding package offers.
If you like what you see, the next step is for us to chat on the phone. That way, you can tell me all about your wedding day plans, location, and timeline. And you can ask any questions you might have. We can then schedule a free in-person wedding consult so we can make sure we're a good fit, I can show you my portfolio and custom-designed albums, and you can ask any additional questions.
I look forward to speaking soon!


I'm a professional wedding and portrait photographer with over 27 years experience.
From the beginning, I've been blessed with recording some of the most important moments in people's lives. Because I work so closely with my clients and love to be involved in capturing the milestones at each life stage, I often think of myself as an honorary member of their families.
I especially love photographing weddings.
Being a part of the excitement, energy, and joy of such a special day is a wonderful experience— one of the best highs in life!
I love my work and am passionate about making sure you're beyond happy with your photoshoot and photos!
I'm low-stress: I believe having your photograph taken should be a fun experience that celebrates you and your loved ones, not a chore that you have to grin and bear!
I won't add stress to your day by barking out orders, and you won't trip over my ego. A wedding day can be stressful enough, and I don't want to add to that.
I'm flexible: Even with the best planning, sometimes your wedding day doesn't unfold quite the way you wanted. That's ok! I will work around the glitches. That's part of what makes your day uniquely yours.
I tailor to your unique needs and style: I want my clients to participate in the story-telling.
I'll work with you to figure out how to best utilize your photography time.
I'll direct you but won't be in the way: I will direct you and give you suggestions in order to get natural-looking smiles while being as unobtrusive as possible.
Clients often say they didn't notice me at all during the ceremony.
My approach is low-stress, fun, flexible, and tailored to your unique needs and style.
If I had to label my photographic style, I'd call it “candidly posed.” I provide direction to get you the best shots possible, but also make it fun and relaxed to capture the unexpected moments and allow your unique personality to shine through.
I have a well-honed eye for detail. I work hard to get the most natural, authentic images by getting shots right the first time and not having to “fix” them later.
While I'm extremely proficient with Photoshop, I use it to enhance already beautiful images, not to create overly-worked and over-the-top images.
We live in the digital age, where many physical mementos of memories (like photographs, albums, etc.) are disappearing.
While digital is great in so many ways, much of the quality, feel, and specialness get lost in translation. Not only that, but digital files lose data (pixels) over time, leading to a deteriorating image over the years. Unfortunately, digital files also often get lost on drives that crash or go bad.
So, in addition to all digital images, I offer tangible products—like custom designed albums, gallery wraps, photo box keepsakes, and wall design services— because I believe it's important to have unique, everyday reminders of the love, special people, and special events in our lives.
We have all heard that when there is a fire or natural disaster, the first things (and sometimes the only things) people take with them are their photographs. Those are the things we treasure —not the “stuff” we accumulate in life, but the memories.
