I always hear how sharp, clear, and colorful my photos are. There is a reason for that! I'm super deliberate with my work and I don't mess around with your memories by slapping filters on them. As much as bright and airy or dark and moody photos can be pretty, they will also eventually become dated and they are certainly not an accurate depiction of the people, places, and things you pay me to help you remember. If you want more detail on that, I'm happy to share. But what I really want you to know about my style is this...
At the heart of it all are the people. I want you to be able to look back at my photos and relive your own experiences, without stylistic distractions getting in the way. My shooting style is a mix of traditional & contemporary. That's because I want your photos to be a reflection of all that is happening today and also a way for you to easily peek back into your family members faces long after they are gone. I shoot for the moments, I shoot for the documentation, and I shoot for the beauty of it all.
I've been a professional wedding photographer since 2009. I started my business under the the name Life Art Photographs, so if you're looking for history on my work that's where you'll find it.
Honestly, I've totally lost count. It's well into the triple digits.
My experience. The quality of my work. My ability to anticipate a moment. My ability to adapt to and shoot in any lighting scenario you throw at me. My perspective. I'm super fun and totally awesome too.
It's not an exact formula and each wedding is different, but on average I deliver around 100 photos per hour.
Honestly... as soon as you're ready you should do it. I can only book one wedding per day and in most cases will only photograph one per weekend. Most couples book me 9 - 12 months or more before their wedding.
Yes, but that depends on the availability of one of my preferred contractors and the workload that I have around your wedding day. I prefer you start with just one and add the other on later. If I am not able to secure someone who I trust 100% on your wedding day or cannot add on the additional editing work to my calendar without compromising your happiness with my product and service, I can help ensure you get the absolute best product and service by helping you choose a vendor for the alternative service.
Everything that is delivered is edited. The only footage you don't receive are shots that are exact duplicates, are technically flawed, or are unflattering (think of pressing pause on TV when a gorgeous person looks horrendous at the moment the screen is frozen). I have a very clean editing style so they will not appear to have any special effects or filters. They will look like the work you see here on my website.
I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed agreement to book a wedding. Remember, once you're booked I turn down all other work for that entire day and sometimes weekend. Your entire retainer is applied toward your wedding coverage.
Great! I've got answers. Just contact me to set up a meeting. We can get together at the studio so that I can show you around, you can see tangible samples of my work, and you can ask me anything your heart desires. If you're from out of the area, we can Skpe or do an old fashioned phone call .
