Congratulations! You’re Getting Hitched.

I’m sure you have lots of questions. Let’s find out if I’m the guy for you.

In Fifty Years

As you look back on one of the benchmark days of your life, you’ll remember the look on your spouse’s face as he saw you across the aisle for the first time. You’ll remember the pride in your father’s eyes when he handed you over to the man of your dreams. You’ll remember that your brand new husband strapped on a headlamp to retrieve your garter. Your once-in-a-lifetime dress gets hung up, your dream venue gets torn down, the best cake ever gets eaten, but your memories live on in your photographs. There are few decisions you’ll make on your wedding day more important than choosing your photographer.

WHY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make. When all is said and done, the dress will get hung up, the cake will be eaten, and the venue will be torn down. 30 years down the line, as you look back fondly on your wedding day, you’ll remember the look on your spouse’s face as they saw you from across the aisle for the first time. You’ll remember the pride in your father’s eyes when he handed you over to the man of your dreams. You’ll remember these moments because your photographer captured them. Of all the things you’ll invest in on your wedding day, your photos are the one thing that increase in value over time. Your wedding photos will be your everlasting window in to the best day of your life.

YOUR ONE SHOT

Hiring a photographer isn’t like buying a car. You get one shot at this. There is no return policy and no warranty. You can’t decide you don’t like the photos in three years and turn them in for a newer model and a different style. One of the biggest days of your life will be etched into your family’s history, for better or for worse, for as long as you live by the photographer you pick. I know. No pressure. That’s why it’s so important to pick the right one.

THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER

Close your eyes, spin around, and throw a rock. You’ll probably hit a wedding photographer. We’re everywhere, which means choosing can be overwhelming. The right photographer for you may not have the best deal on pricing, the biggest client list, or the largest Instagram following. The right photographer might not be the one your friends chose, or the one your mom recommends. The right photographer is one who makes you feel comfortable, shares your values, and understands your vision for the best party of your life. There work should make you stop, pay attention, and imagine yourself in it. Go ahead. throw as many rocks as you need. I’ll be waiting right here.

The right photographer is one you feel comfortable around and enjoy talking with, the one who shares your vision for the best party of your life, the one whose work makes you stop and pay attention and imagine yourself in it.

On Your Wedding Day

I’ll work tirelessly to document everything that matters. I’ll do my best to stay out of your way.

Shooting for Posterity

These photos are for you. You’ll receive high-resolution JPGs so you can share them with all your friends and watch the likes an comments roll in. They even come with print rights so you can print your first holiday card as a family and send your grandmother something to hang on the fridge. I’m also proud to offer museum-grade prints and wedding albums that will last for generations and forever preserve the memories from the best day of your life.

Wedding Albums

Shooting For Posterity

In 80 years, when the term JPG will be some forgotten answer to a question in Trivial Pursuit and the hard drive storing your wedding photos will be about as useful as a one armed Snuggie, your physical wedding photos will still be just as important. It’s for this reason that I offer beautiful wedding albums, and prints as options in my custom wedding collections. Physical prints don’t become obsolete, require new updates, or automatically get deleted because some fire breathing software glitch from hell has it out for the things you care for most.Don’t get me wrong. You’ll get high-res JPGs so you can upload them to Instagram. They even come with print rights so you can print up your first holiday cards as a couple. However, I’m shooting for the album your grandchildren will fip through some day and think to themselves, “wow, they are so beautiful.” the digital stuff is just icing on the cake.
