As for weddings: The objective is to tell the story of your special day, to use natural light as much as possible to create candid, timeless images that document your event as thoroughly as possible including the many things happening all around you that you might otherwise not be aware of. The important thing is that we establish good rapport between us. I'm part of your team. I'm there to help you in anyway I can.

Once we agree to get " married " so to speak, the preparations begin. A contract spelling out needs and expectations is signed. It's very important for me to be part of your planning sessions. I will do everything I can to get in tune with your needs and desires concerning the way you want your special day to unfold. There'll be a visit to your venues to get to know the layout, best shooting locations, the lighting arrangements etc. A chat with the officiant will also help.

As for pricing: It's a package arrangement.

Packages based on hourly coverage.

Value package: $895 for four hours of coverage.

The Bronze package is $995 for 6 hours of coverage.

The Silver package is $1195 for 8 hours of coverage.

And the Gold package is $1595 for ten hours of coverage.

This includes an engagement session, wedding album, a DVD with a slideshow of your favorite images set to music, and the digital negatives.

The fee is split into three payments: the first due when we're hired, the second ninety days before the wedding, and the third the week before the wedding.
