Pre-wedding rehearsal dinners are wonderful events where family and friends gather to celebrate and prepare for the big day.

Engagement sessions are a fun and casual way to capture the essence of your love story. They're a perfect blend of candid moments and posed shots that reflect your unique personalities and style. An engagement session is an investment in your wedding day photos. I like to think of it as a "photographic ice-breaker." By spending time with me in a fun and relaxed setting, you'll feel more comfortable in front of the camera when the big day comes.

type

I'm old school. Having first discovered my love of photography in a darkroom, I believe that photography is best experienced as a physical object. Enjoying a beautiful photo album with friends and family is an amazing experience which beats looking at photos on a screen any day.

Hand made in New York from the finest materials, these albums are sure to last generations.

HANDCRAFTED ALBUMS

My post-production includes color correction, exposure adjustment, crop, and black and white treatment. Additional retouching work, such as blemish removal, is available for an additional fee ($10-$20 per image).

WHAT KIND OF IMAGE EDITING DO YOU DO, IF ANY?

Delivery of your wedding collection takes 8-10 weeks, but this can vary based on studio workload. I prioritize quality over meeting deadlines and may take extra time during busy seasons. A selection of "teaser photos" will be delivered the week after the wedding. 2 week delivery is available as a $500 upgrade.

WHEN DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?

Your photos will be delivered via a secure online proofing gallery, from where you can browse, share, order prints, and download full-resolution files. An engraved USB drive and photo case are available as upgrades.

HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?

In the unlikely event of illness or injury, I have a network of professional photographer colleagues who can step in. You will receive a list of available photographers to choose from, and I will handle all logistics.

WHAT IF YOU ARE SICK OR INJURED AND CAN'T SHOOT OUR WEDDING?

Due to high demand, no discounts are offered on photography packages, but custom packages with adjusted pricing can be arranged.

DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?

I have liability insurance and my equipment is insured.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

This is depends on the way your unique day unfolds. I typically deliver around 80-100 images per hour of coverage. So, if you book 9 hours of wedding day coverage, you can expect to receive between 700-900 photos.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?

While you will receive copies of the images for personal use, I retain legal ownership. You cannot sell the images, but are encouraged to enjoy them for personal use and sharing.

DO WE OWN THE PHOTOS YOU DELIVER?

I only book one wedding per weekend and will serve as the lead photographer for your event.

DO YOU BOOK MORE THAN ONE WEDDING ON A DAY/WEEKEND?

I am equipped with backup gear, including multiple camera bodies, and various lenses. All equipment used is current, and well-maintained professional level Nikon gear.

DO YOU HAVE BACKUP GEAR?

An initial deposit is due upon signing the contract. The remaining balance is payable two weeks before the wedding day. Payment methods accepted are cash, check, or credit card. A payment schedule will be provided with your contract.

HOW DOES THE PAYMENT PROCESS WORK?

To book my services, a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of $2000 is required. Bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis and no dates are reserved without a contract and retainer.

HOW DO WE SECURE OUR DATE?
