Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

I like to take a photojournalists approach to my wedding days and although I will do some directing during the formals and bridal party groupings, I feel that the best images come when nobody sees me capture them.

How did you get into wedding photography?

I have a degree in Graphic Design with a specialty in Photography. I found that between the two, photography was always something that I was more passionate about and my hobby became my profession.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

You really do get what you pay for……if your main concern is price, you will need to shop around a lot. If your main concern is quality images, then find what style fits you best and see what you can make work.

Word of mouth and referrals have been great.

Because they know what to expect and photography is something they know will be taken care of and they won't have to worry about come the day of the wedding.

Who or what inspires you?

Weddings are great because they are always different…..different venues, different couples, and different decor…..so I always have something new to look forward to working with.
