Weddings

My wife and I married on May 6th, 2000. Even now, we still enjoy looking through our wedding album, especially when we can share it with our kids. Your wedding will likely be the most important day of your life. My personal goal is to create one-of-a-kind images for you that tell the story of your wedding day. Imagery that immediately takes you back to the moment that photograph was created. With professional dress and attitude, my assistant and I mix photojournalism (i.e. candid) and guided posing throughout your wedding day, using natural and artificial light to create the story of your wedding.  

I am very thankful for the weddings I have been privileged to photograph. Shown below are a few of my favorite images that I sincerely hope you too, will enjoy. Please contact us to discuss how we can help you on this special day!

A note about RAW files Vs. JPG files:

There often is quite a debate about which format is better. Though I don't believe one format is necessarily "better" than the other, because each offers advantages and disadvantages over the other, I made the decision several years ago to shoot in RAW.


JPGs are basically finished once they are created, with much less ability to manipulate them. I have heard more than one horror story of a wedding photographer who shot the entire wedding in JPGS, but was not of a skill to produce a quality image that easily could have been corrected in a RAW file.


RAW files offer easier ability to adjust files into polished, finished photos than their JPG counterparts. Personally, they allow me the creative freedom to create a photo that matches my style of shooting and concept of imagery rather than a JPG photo that was created using preset settings on the back of my camera.

About our Albums


I believe the wedding album is the best method for remembering your day. Yes, digital files are important, especially with their quick access for social media posts, but the album provides an incredible, tangible book that helps you slow down, to soak in each memory.
