Choosing a wedding photographer can be a daunting task.

There are hundreds of wedding photographers to choose from, some are seasoned professionals that charge what they are worth, some just bought a camera with no experience and charge way too much, with price ranges anywhere from free to $400+ per hour, your wedding photography could cost as much as a car, down-payment on house, just as much as your honeymoon or a whole semester at a university.

I don’t feel you have to pay those prices to get amazing images.  Let me work out a wedding package that fits your budget so you can put the remaining money toward your future together.

Describing a style is sometimes more difficult than it seems. There are certainly adjectives that we can use to describe how we see other wedding photographers: sexy, sophisticated, edgy, avant-garde, fashionable. But these are just words, our style is more of a feeling; an experience. When you are being photographed by us – you will feel fun, powerful, lighthearted, stunning, on top of the world. Because that is how we envision our clients. We take the time to get to know you – to learn what will evoke the natural smile, what will cause you to show your sensual side, perhaps even a tear or two, what will allow you to just be you. That is what makes our photos stand out – the experience that allows the inner you to shine.

I have been a photographer for the past 20+ years, traveled to 19 countries, lived in the Philippines for 3 years and have photographed some amazing people and placed. My last photo assignment overseas was to Bangladesh in 2009.  I had a feeling that ever since making my first pinhole camera in 1987 that I was on a path to something incredible.  I recently spent close to 3 years shooting alongside an Award Winning Wedding Photographer here on the East Coast, the additional skills I learned from such a talented wedding photographer was a phenomenal experience.

Let me help make your day an incredible experience with memories that will last forever.
