Your Wedding Photographs
I am a visual artist who sees social occasions as works of art. I strive to become part of your celebration and convey the value and the happiness of the day. I adjust my shooting style from documentary to formal portraiture to best tell your story and show the beauty of your wedding.
Regardless of setting, I always capture the moments that convey the love of you, your fiancé, and those around you. With 30 years experience in event photography, I will help stage-manage all photographic situations to make your wedding go smoothly and quickly.
As an artist, I feel lighting is one of the most creative tools in communicating emotions and portraying locations. I try to capture as much as I can with available light but I also use flash that gives a natural feel to portraits and interiors. Flash pops add to the excitement and glamour of your wedding.
I have a long practice in graphic design that will give your wedding album delightfulness and meaning. I design your album using the latest digital compositing programs to present your photographs beautifully and memorably. I take pride in personally retouching and printing each photograph using archival pigment technology. Your wedding album is a beautiful and lasting document of your special day to be handed down through time.

Planning your wedding photography
Before the wedding
Wedding photography usually begins an hour-and-a-half before the ceremony. At this time, we photograph the bride, her family, and attendants. We also photograph the groom, groomsmen, and his family, time permitting. The bride and groom, traditionally, are not supposed to see each other before the wedding, but many couples don't follow this custom. Doing some or all of your group photos before the ceremony can save time getting to the reception.
At the Ceremony
Ceremony photography depends on the style of your wedding and the location. However, we know where and when to capture all your precious moments--from procession to the kiss.
After the Ceremony
After the ceremony, traditionally, the bride and groom pose as a couple and then pose with the wedding party and families. Planning a list of group photos with names of all the people to be included will speed this process. We will help you plan for all the photographs you want. Photographs after the ceremony may take up to an hour.
At the Reception
Reception photography includes toasts, the wedding cake, dancing, and throwing the bouquet and garter. These are often semi-posed and we will work together to arrange the situations for the best photos
I take candid photographs of your entire wedding day. Don’t be afraid to suggest something on the spot. We will end up with several hundred photographs to choose from. You can have as many photographs in your album as you wish to purchase.
