Investing in a photographer is about more than a monetary value. It’s about investing in a relationship, in a rapport. It’s about investing in someone to be present in those small moments yet always anticipating the next move. It’s not a task that I believe should be taken lightly, I believe that these personal connections are the foundation for great portraits.
When it comes to wedding and event photography, my experience has shown me that no two events are ever the same. Therefore, additional details are necessary in order for me to provide accurate pricing information.

The best part is that the value of a purchased gift can be applied to any product or service.
● Fun Fact! A recent couple was gifted with three 11x14 canvases by a guest, valued at $400 per canvas. Not ready to invest in Wall Art, they utilized the total value of $1200 to upgrade their Wedding album and booked coverage of their Welcome Dinner!
This is my way of presenting your portraits to you and it is an experience I take great pride in. You may choose to keep this an intimate moment for just you two or you may opt to bring up to 15 guests with you. I transform the studio’s living room in to your private theater, supplying beverages (champagne is always a must!) and light snacks. All you have to do is sit back, relax and relive a beautiful experience via a slideshow presentation of approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
I was so honored to be featured in the New York Times, to shed light on this great new trend I’ve been doing since 2008.
photography wedding timeline
When it comes to creating your photography timeline, I am extremely hands on.
I understand the mechanics of a full wedding day and the many variables that come into play, from the necessary time allocated for hair and makeup to venue restrictions, sunset time and tackling those formal family portraits.
I know how long each part of your day should take and how to best create a timeline that allows you to be relaxed and never rushed to get amazing portraits, and genuinely enjoy your event and time with one another.
One of our most important meetings together is our Wedding Design Appointment, It takes place a few weeks before your wedding date. Prior to this appointment, I will provide you with a Wedding Kit, requesting several key details ranging from wedding pros contact information to your requested Family Portrait List. Based on factors such as the timing of your ceremony, if you will be having a First Encounter, specific photo requests, the size of your Wedding Party, I then create a seamless timeline.
Once complete you will feel confident and reassured that all will unfold as it should and be able to provide your relatives with appropriate times to be ready and what to expect throughout the day in regard to photography.
payment options and plans
Some clients choose to have events which require minimal coverage, a few hours on the day of and a beautiful heirloom are enough to tell their story beautifully. While others are interested in something a bit more comprehensive, capturing every moment and angle of their story.
To accommodate the needs of every client, I offer the following additional services.
I am a firm believer in the power of engagement portraits. This time allows you as a couple to get comfortable in front of the camera and us to get comfortable with each other. You can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting while creating some fun, memorable images for Wall Portraits, your Forget Me Nots, and the popular Save The Date.
Everyone is pretty familiar with engagement or boudoir portraits, but post-wedding portraits have become some of my favorite portraits. These portraits will allow you to do something you might have not done on the wedding day. From riding a horse, going out in the water or even change your style from that of the wedding day.
His or Her Eyes Only
Show off your beauty and love yourself with photographs that you can treasure. Tastefully shot; these sexy, fun, empowering portraits are designed to celebrate you in every way. Take a break from the wedding planning and treat yourself to those outfits that make you feel confident and radiant. Incorporate your fiancé with personal touches to reflect their favorite hobbies or even some of their clothing, such as their favorite shirt, sweater or tie. Make your portraits extra special by incorporating wedding details such as your garter, those new killer shoes or your veil!
Take advantage of having those closest to you gathered for one final celebration before the big day! Most often Welcome Dinners are a great opportunity to capture portraits of couples with their relatives and wedding party, without the formality of your wedding day attire.
This includes but is not limited to coverage of Engagement Parties, Bridal Shower or Couples' Shower, Mendi, Bridesmaid Luncheon and Groomsmen Luncheon, etc. Months of planning go into not only your Wedding Day but all the celebrations leading up to it. Those closest to you have worked tirelessly to curate perfect events honoring you and their love for you, what better way to thank them then by capturing every moment. Use these portraits to create custom and unique wedding party gifts.
You’ve planned and invested in your dream destination but your memories will be left to the will of your cell phone’s camera. Honeymoon coverage allows you to take advantage of gorgeous locations and create stunning imagery while enjoying wedded bliss! I take a documentary approach to honeymoon photography, ensuring that your time is not spent posing endlessly but capturing you in your natural state, exploring unknown locations.
I am fully confident in my ability to photograph a Wedding or Event without an additional photographer, it is something I have done many times. However, no matter how hard I try I cannot duplicate myself to be in two places at once. Occasionally the day’s timeline will call for moving parts to take place at the same time, such as cocktail hour and family portraits. Having an additional photographer provides an extra piece of mind that no portion of the day is under photographed.
