Whether it's a subdued candlelit dinner or dance party that lasts all night.  You know what is important to you. I'll make sure your photos reflect that.

The Experience

The guests stood in celebration...

...as Haley took David's hand and they entered their reception as newlyweds.

The day had been effortless and you could see the joy and love radiating from their smiles. Throughout the celebration people came up to congratulate them with hugs, kisses, tears, and stories.

They danced, they drank, and because of the subtle direction and candid nature of my documentary style, they were able to enjoy every second of their wedding day. They knew they would have timeless, magazine worthy photos with the ones they love without insincere smiles or stiff poses.

Speaking of bridal sessions.. it's a great excuse to pamper yourself with a spa day and do a trial run of your hair and makeup a few weeks before your wedding. It's also a great way to get beautiful gifts for your fiance and have some fun in front of the camera.

Your wedding day timeline is an intricate balance between just enough portrait time that we capture your personalities and not so much that you feel like your celebration has turned into a photoshoot.

Over the course of planning your wedding, we'll spend a lot of time getting to know one another and I've met some of my closest friends through photographing their wedding day.

As an added bonus, all past wedding clients also receive special gifts for referring friends and family. 

11. Stay In Touch

I deliver impactful wedding photographs that naturally document your day.
All you have to do is have fun!

Your experience comes first - That means I want you to enjoy yourselves above all else. 

Real moments are better than perfection - There's certainly a time for posed photos but the rest of the day should be able to flow without interference.

I'm documenting YOUR story -  The images that I deliver from your wedding are directly influenced by what is most important to you. I spend time with you learning what you're most looking forward to and understanding why.

If any of that resonates with you, then maybe I'm the photographer for you.

Frequently asked

Questions

What does a second photographer do?

No one can be in tow places at once. I know that sounds surprising but it's true. Trust me, I've tried. But with two photographers on your wedding day it can seem like I am! 
While one photographer captures images of you and your bridesmaids drinking mimosas and dancing to T. Swift, the other can be getting creative shots of the guys golfing and smoking cigars in preparation. For all the big moments, you'll also get two perspectives, meaning we are able to be more intentional with how we document your day.

Frequently asked

Questions

Will I make it to my cocktail hour?

Your goals are my goals. So if you say that you'd like to enjoy spend every second you can with your friends and family, I'll help you build a timeline that ensures you get to do just that. 

Frequently asked

Questions

What mix of photos do you provide?

I love the boldness and passion of full color, the classic feel and punch of black-and-white, and the timeless impact of film. Most of your gallery will be in color, with some specific shots in black and white. All images will have a modern tone color grade and grain pulling inspiration from medium format film.

Frequently asked

Questions

How do you feel about pets in the ceremony?

My wife and I live on a farm with horses, dogs, and cats. I'm positive if we had more land she would talk me into having more animals. I say that to say this - I'd LOVE to meet your pets!

Frequently asked

Questions

I'm having a traditional church wedding. How do you photograph the ceremony?

I love photographing traditional ceremonies just as much as modern ones. The architecture, entryways, and stained glass windows of many churches make for stunning backdrops for me to create unique images for you!

Frequently asked

Questions

My partner and I are non-traditional or LGBTQI+. Will you photograph our wedding?

Absolutely! I may have a strong Southern accent but I am a firm believer that love is love. I'm proud to document weddings for any couple in love.

Frequently asked

Questions

Do you travel for destination weddings?

I love visiting new and old places and will travel almost anywhere in the world! (Except Ohio since my wife is from Michigan and that apparently is a big deal.)

Frequently asked

Questions

What is your average price for wedding photography?

The most basic level of service begins at $3500 for 8 hours of coverage, and most couples get an 8-12 hour collection tailored to suit their specific needs somewhere in the $5000-$8000 range.
