First and foremost, regardless of the project, you should be comfortable with your photographer. It’s your special day; this is why I include an engagement session in most of my collections. We have a great opportunity before the wedding to get to know each other and create amazing photographs.

I create images that are seen through the loving eyes of your fiance(e), parent, relative, and friends. This is not just about your amazing day, it is a story about family and generational connections, an heirloom in the making.

Your wedding day is meant to enjoy! I capture your authentic moments, unobtrusively. Even during the busy time of group pictures I have ways of eliciting wonderful moments that allow you to move on to enjoying the next aspect of your day. Although you may be occasionally aware when I am capturing moments, I have developed a trust so that all is fun and the love shines through.

My signature style is candid photography and heartfelt spontaneous moments captured unobtrusively. However, I feel wedding photography can be enriched greatly by a combination of elegantly combined styles. If you feel adventurous, we love to include fashion, creative lighting, fabulous poses, and storytelling. Traditional style can also include a vintage ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s look and feel!


Something else that sets my work apart is my award-winning custom album design and free session. Because I am the one who will capture your unique love story and experience the wedding day, I am able to design the album that most portrays your special day. Far more than a scrapbook, it is a unique handcrafted heirloom, an intimate work of art that you help create.

I start with a proposed design – my vision (with your input) of the wedding day. Since every wedding is different, and every couple unique, I don’t use pre-designed templates. Every page of each album is custom designed by me and approved by you. Every image a fully retouched masterpiece image selected to tell your story. This process is not rushed. We are creating a family heirloom and it’s got to be perfect.


My studio is 100% digital and I use state-of-the-art professional Canon cameras and lenses. All images are captured in “RAW” mode. Unlike JPEG, RAW files also give 30% greater latitude for enhancing and color correcting images in post-production. They can be made into color, black and white, sepia or many other custom effects, and there is little or no degradation while making these changes, unlike JPEGS.

We give you your images on a state-of-the-art Flash Drive or Premium DVD with security access protected with a copyright release.

My clients deserve the very best!
