How long have you been a photographer?
I have been fascinated with photography since I was about 3 years old. I had my first big break photographing the winter Olympics in 1994. My ice skating images were top notch...minus the early 90's television screen that provided a lovely border around each triple axle.
I have been shooting professionally since 2007, prior to attending College at Brooks Institute of Photography.
Will you be taking the photos or an assistant?
I am the photographer and I will be with you from start to finish. Some weddings or events may require me to have an assistant but even in that care, I will be photographing you, your family, or your event. I believe that building relationships is key, and I will be here to assist you with whatever you may need photographically speaking, not an assistant.
Do you have a studio space?
Yes, 1401 Main Street.
I shoot both indoor with strobe, and outdoor in natural light. I also travel to clients homes or alternate locations for specific shoots.
You seem to photograph a lot outside during daylight...are you comfortable with flash?
I specialize in utilizing ambient light, which is best in it's natural, outdoor form. I am asked on occasion if I am comfortable with flash. I can answer with a resounding yes! I have to be comfortable with all types of photography and my education at Brooks prepared me in all aspects of available and fabricated (strobe/flash) light. If you'd like to see images or weddings that have been photographed with flash and or strobes, let me know! I am happy to share!
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes. I've traveled all over the US for weddings and portrait work. I am always interested in adventuring.
What gear do you use?
Contax 645 (medium format film), Hasselblad 500c (medium format film), Nikon F5 (35mm film), Nikon D700 (digi gear) + a vatiety of Nikon lenses.
If I cannot afford to have you shoot my whole day - do you have customizable packages for couples with tighter budgets?
Yes, I can customize packages for brides on tighter budgets. Let's chat! Please email me for more information.
How do I book?
This part is pretty simple! Once you’ve made your decision to book all you need to do is select your package, sign on the dotted line, and pay your non-refundable retainer fee (50% of your package total) Simple enough, right?!
I booked a session but I'm not sure what to wear. Do you have any suggestions?
Yes! I've got a whole page on how to prepare for your session! Click here!
