I don't just want to take your pictures – I want to be your family historian,
crafting stories that come alive as you relive them time and time again.
Let your Day Breathe
Weddings are days never to be repeated, so I want you to live in the moment and enjoy every second of your day to the fullest, not be worried about what happens next. Our time together will be gently guided, letting you feel each moment of the day.
Keeping your future grandkids in mind
Your wedding is a once in a lifetime opportunity where you will have your family, relatives, and friends all be together – maybe for the first time in years in such capacity and I want to capture those special bonds. My goal is to tell a deeper story and capture real life, so I'm not big on taking standard posey photos. I care about what’s real and what will endure 10 years, or even 30 years from now. I care about the photos that will matter to those that haven’t even been born yet.
Timelines are a wedding necessity, but I believe they should be a guide, not a contract with the sun. To ensure I'm always in the right place, at the right time, I’ll help create a unique timeline tailored to your day, scout your venue the day before your wedding and come up with unique ideas for your portraits. I'll coordinate with your wedding planner, venue and all of your other vendors ahead of time, and be there as a resource for you throughout the entire planning process to make sure your day goes as smoothly and exactly how you envision it.

What's Your Style?
My style is most often described as creative documentary. My primary aim is to capture and present the genuine narrative of your special day as it naturally unfolds. I achieve this by preserving candid moments as they happen, refraining from any excessive direction or interference. I also like to add artistic touch to what I document and put a lot of energy and time into creative portraits of the two of you. I look for interesting light, angles and backgrounds, to turn your wedding portraits into works of art. In addition to all your creative and documentary photos, your families can rest assured I will produce beautiful, traditional family photographs, as well as capture all the amazing design and decor details that you worked so hard on!
How do we hire you?
Easy! Just contact me and I'll arrange an opportunity for the three
of us to get to know each other and ensure we're a perfect match.
In order to confirm your date, a retainer of $1000 is to be paid along with a signed contract. The remainder is due 4 weeks before the wedding date. All bookings are taken care of electronically.
Where are you based? Do you travel?
I am based in the Columbus, OH area and absolutely LOVE to travel! For wedding destinations that are outside of Ohio and within the United States, an additional travel quote will be provided and added
to your package.
When do we get to see our images?
I provide sneak peeks within a few days of your wedding, but it generally takes about 8-10 weeks to complete your images, prepare your online gallery, create your slideshow and design your album (which will arrive, 6-8 weeks after final design approval).
How many images will we receive?
My goal is to artfully tell your story completely and beautifully. In doing so, I emphasize quality over quantity. Generally, most couples receive 600 to 1000 images, tailored to the size and intricacy of their event.
