The best way to learn more is to simply contact me today and set up a personal meeting. But I know you have a busy life, so I have gathered some of my most frequently asked questions in this section so you can read more in the meantime. Please click on each heading to expand.
You consider yourself as a candid photographer, do you do posed shots too?
In these situations, I work in a way that makes you feel comfortable and free, unrestricted by stuffy poses. By working in this manner, I am able to interact with anyone easily, even those who are camera shy or not used to having their photo taken.
Why do you recommend engagement sessions so much?
I also offer extended engagements for an additional charge, which take place in further away or more exotic destinations. My mountain engagement sessions are great examples of these, but they can be done nearly anywhere. If you and your fiance are adventurous people and want something to match your larger-than-life personalities, this is the session for you.
What's all this about individual attention?
In a world full of photographers who are content to do only what’s necessary to get by, I strive to be something more. There are literally hundreds of wedding photographers in this area alone, and I think it is ironic that the only way a bride has to compare them is by their images alone. Wedding photography to me is so much more than beautiful wedding photos – it is about the entire experience.
No one wants to be viewed as a number, a nuisance, or another sales goal in someone’s ledger. I want to get to know my couples a little better and learn what makes them unique. I want to channel their personalities into their photography so it reflects who they are in a better and more natural way than stuffy traditional poses. And most of all I want them to be happy and relaxed every time we work together so this personality can shine. This is the personal, individual attention I am talking about.
I value your experience as much as I do your wedding photos. Because of this, I do things very differently from other photographers.
- I only accept a limited number of weddings each year to avoid looking at people as numbers, and so I don’t have to sacrifice my ability to give your wedding the individual attention it deserves.
- In most cases I also limit weddings to a maximum of one wedding per weekend to avoid burnout which would prevent me from performing the best I possibly can.
- I require an in-person meeting / interview before booking, which is meant to ensure that we are an excellent fit – both stylistically and personally. It is very important that your ideals, needs, and preferences mesh with your photographer, and this is how I can ensure you receive the absolute best experience possible.
In a world where everyone else views you as a number, make sure your photographer views you as the unique person you are.

How would you describe your photography style?
My style can be described as artistic, dramatic, bold, and candid.
I take a light approach to posing, in that I direct couples to interact with each other and capture their emotional connection instead of placing them in stuffy poses. I feel this leads to a more natural photo that shows a couple’s real personality as well as the loving connection between them. I believe that natural photos are what stand the test of time. This photo style grows in value over time, as opposed to photography fads and gimmicks which fade and become irrelevant as time goes on.

What are your album options?
I offer 8″x8″, 10″x10″, and 12″x12″ albums of various lengths and options, including various types of leather and colors. All albums feature lab quality photos printed directly on bonded, reinforced pages for strength and durability. They utilize a seamless gutter design which allows for beautiful panorama printing across a two page spread.
These albums are beautiful and best viewed in person, and I will be happy to show them during our initial consult.
